One of the only microbreweries in Dunedin, New Zealand that makes 3 seasonal beers and eighty year-round beers is the Emerson’s Brewery. It was established in 1992 by Richard Emerson who started the brewery in a cold student flat. Now, the brewery produces around 15000 litres of premium craft beer every day, catering to a number of local as well as international customers.
Emerson’s Brewery follows a non-conventional pattern where their beers are not pasteurized and no preservatives, sugar or artificial colouring is added, making it one hundred percent natural. What’s more, some of their beers are not filtered. Recently, the brewery opened a new home in midwest, making it an entire Empire that includes a restaurant, bar and cellar door in addition to the 25-year-old brewery. All in all, this place is a paradise for those who love ales, ciders or beers, especially those who want to taste a range of natural and authentic ones.
The guided tour and tasting is one of the only tours at Emerson’s Brewery. This includes a 45-minute tour starting with the introduction of the history of the Brewery, how Richard Emerson established his dream of starting a beer culture, from a student flat to a big-time empire.
This is accompanied by the 5000 L and 1200 L brewery workshop along with a personally detailed explanation of the brewing process including fermentation, malting and bottling.
To end this experience, visitors are given 6 samples of unique craft beers. Visitors can also choose to have these beers along with their meals at the restaurant.
