Whereabouts in NZ spog? If in Wellington, go to the Malthouse, it has beers from the Tuatara brewery and the beers were excellent.

Cheers

Without knowing exactly where you are going other than Dunedin and Christchurch, here is a post I made to another AHB member who was recently over there.

In Wellington check out Shed 22 Brewing Company which is on the water front at the end of Taranaki St, next to the Te Papa museum.
Also in Wellington check out the Malt House bar on Willis street for a huge selection of beers including many small breweries.
In Christchurch check out Dux de Lux which is the #1 micro there.
In Queenstown check out Monty's which is Monteiths theme bar.
Around the lower part of the South Island if you make it to Wanaka check out Wanaka Beer Works. I haven't been to the brewery but have had a few of their beers.
Dunedin check out Speights Brewery tour and Emersons (who I think only do tours by prior arrangement).
Let us know where else you are going and I can come up with more tips.

Have a great trip; Beers,
Doc

In the north island there's a saying that goes "if you drink speights, you've got no mates". And yes, gold medal is crap.

Haven't heard that one in a while. The other saying is: "Some People Enjoy It, God Hates The Shit"
