Mangatainoka is not just the perfect place to break your journey's between Napier or Taupo and Wellington but is also home to the one and only Tui HQ which is arguably New Zealand's favourite brewery visit. Right in the heart of the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail there is something for everyone at Tui HQ. Here you will find a museum that's a shrine to all things Tui and a place to pick up a souvenir of your trip. However, instead of stocking those authentic plastic Maori tikis made in Taiwan, Tui HQ has more Tui gear than any Tui drinker could ever believe.
Even more important, there's a warmly welcoming bar that draws it's Tui direct from the spring only a few metres away - so go on take a tour of the brewery or try a tasting of our fresh beers on tap. Have a look around the Histui museum, check out the Tui brewery tower or the Tui National Park (with bird life) and see where the brand has grown from. Tastings are available every minute that we are open. Tours - while available every day, you will need to book, as the brewery girls will need to stop brewing to show you around.
Now for your added convenience - if you want a bite to eat, we now have a full cafe offering. We have some great kiwi grub for the puku (all prepared by the chef). Groups from 2 to 250 can be catered for.
No trip to Mangatainoka is complete without of a tour of this famous brewery.What would a brewery be if we didn't let you have a gork around! There is plenty to see, photo opportunities galore and maybe the Tui Girls will be working.
Monday - Sunday: Tours 11am & 2pm. Bookings are essential, as the Tui Girls are brewing beer and need to take time off to show you around.
If you have a special tour party, we can arrange tours outside of these hours (groups of 20+). However your tour will need to be before 3pm (give as a call to discuss options).
Cost: $20.00 - Includes: Tour, 3 beers and you steal your glass
