The Great Taste Cycling Craft Beer Tour

Friday 1st December 2023-Sunday 31st March 2024

We’ll meet you at your accommodation*, kit you out with bikes, maps and do a safety briefing, and send you off on your tour which ends in Nelson CBD with a shuttle bus home if required.

You may choose to start the day with a visit to Pic’s Peanut Butter World or dive straight into a brewery with a range of seasonal beers (and cider) on tap and in cans if you would like to stock up for another day. You may have a 4 x beer tasting here. At the next brewery, you may decide to have lunch with your beers. You’ll then make your way along the coast to an old British style pub by the sea, where you can enjoy a delicious drink whilst looking out over the coast. From here there’s a variety of places you can visit as you head to your final destination at the iconic pub The Free House, where you’ll be treated to a selection of fresh brews on tap and possibly your 5 beer tasting here instead. You may choose to stay for the evening and have a peek inside the working microbrewery, or catch the shuttle to your accommodation when we collect the bikes.

*Accommodation must be within 10kms of Nelson CBD (please call for a shuttle price if outside of 10kms).
