Brewtown Tour (Part 2)

Saturday 19th June 2021


This is another Saturday walking tour of five breweries in Upper Hutt: Boneface, Wild Liwi Distiallary and Good George Brewing, Te Aro, Panhead and Kereru Brewing - BREWTOWN.

Those that know Brewtown will also know that the five establishments are within easy walking distance of each other. Fine food and ales await, so let's get planning …

Train timetable for the Hutt Valley line is here

  • Take the train and walk ...

    For those taking the train …

    This is the sensible option. Let the train take the strain both there and back. Here's the timetable. Best try and aim for the 11:50 arrival into Upper Hutt to keep to time.

    It's a short walk from Upper Hutt station to our first venue - Boneface …
  • Start here at 12:00 (ish)

    Boneface Brewing Company

    We'll start here, aiming for a midday start. Since most of you will be taking the train, you can find the Wellington timetable here.

    Suggest we have lunch here - they have some pretty good food, including some sizeable burgers. Feel free to enjoy all three courses here, or save some for later - your call.
  • Arrival around 2:00

    Wild Kiwi Distillery and Good George Brewing

    Drink up and make a move out and to the right. Let's try some Good George Brewing stuff …
  • Arrival around 3:00

    Te Aro Brewing Co.

    Double back towards Te Aro. In addition to some fine ales, they also pour a nice pint of Guinness (and they have a woodburner!)
  • Arrival around 4:15

    Panhead Custom Ales

    A short walk to Panhead to sample some of their offerings. The food is pretty good here, so maybe take in a platter (or two).
  • Arrival at around 5:30

    Kuku Restaurant

    Some fresh air and a 3 minute walk to our last venue just in time for dinner - I can recommend the ribs.

End of tour.

Hopefully you would have enjoyed the event. If you did, then tell your friends. If you didn't, then tell me - that way I can make some improvements for next time :)

Arrive home safely!
