BEER TRAIL
watch for historic hop kilns along
the way.
Beer has been central to the local
culture of the Nelson-Tasman
region, dating back to the first
New Zealand settlements in the
1840s. Early German settlers in
Sarau found the Moutere to be
an ideal location and climate to
cultivate hops, and an extensive
brewing tradition followed.
Many of these locally owned,
family-run breweries and outlets
welcome visitors for tours,
sampling at the bar, having a
meal or takeaway sales. Share a
pint with locals, learn about our
history and experience the wide
range of unique beers. Whether
you prefer an icy pilsner or a
cask-pulled ale, you’ll find it
in Nelson.

most stylish and contemporary venues,

The early settlers from England
and Germany found the Nelson
region well suited to the hop plants
they brought with them. In time a
fledgling industry grew, and hops
were grown throughout the area.
New varieties were developed
and over the next 150 years
New Zealand became known for its
disease free, high quality products.
Variety names like Motueka, Riwaka,
and Nelson Sauvin reveal ties to the
local history and geography.
