We are a craft Brewery with an Alehouse located in central Carterton, open for tours and tastings (by arrangement) as well as for bottle sales and ales on tap.
Have the two passionate brewers, Gary and Brent, show you around their craft brewery where they brew and sell a fine range of English-style ales. Brewed traditionally using a gravity feed system they will show you the brewery, explain how they brew their ales and give tastings of the half dozen varieties they produce.
Tours with tastings (by arrangement): $15/person
Alehouse opening hours: Thurs-Sat 2-9pm
For millennia people have gazed in awe at Stonehenge and other great stone circles, often totally unaware of how these structures were used.
Now a full-scale working adaptation of Stonehenge has been built right here in Aotearoa, allowing all New Zealanders to experience the wonders of stone circles for themselves.
Situated in the Wairarapa countryside, a short distance from Wellington, Stonehenge Aotearoa is a window into the past where the visitor can rediscover the knowledge of their ancestors.
