The Nelson Craft Beer Trail Guide

Beer and brewing has played a big part of the Nelson-Tasman region's history, dating back to the first New Zealand settlements in the 1840s. English settlers brought with them an extensive brewing tradition, and German immigrants founded hop farms in the Moutere region.

Today, the Nelson region lays claim to being the craft brewing capital of New Zealand, and at last count there were 10 small breweries making some exceptional craft beer. If you're visiting the region, The Nelson Craft Beer Trail Guide is a great way to discover more.
