“We are so spoilt in Marlborough when it comes to great food. We’ve got crayfish from the east coast and salmon, oysters and mussels grown in the Marlborough Sounds."

My insider guide to Marlborough

Craft beer

Marlborough is home to some of New Zealand’s top craft beer. Off the back of its winemaking success, Marlborough is taking the craft beer world by storm, taking home some top international awards.

Renaissance and Moa are multi-award winning breweries in Marlborough, with Moa having a cellar door in the heart of the region offering tastings. Sample the brews in local establishments throughout the region or visit the cellar door to see craft beer brewing in action.

Based within The Vines Village along the world famous wine producing area of Rapaura Road, Golden Mile Brewing crafts a range of cycle-friendly sessionable beers perfect for celebrating that epic Marlborough bike ride. Relax on the outside sun-drenched north facing lake-side deck or take a mixed box from their cellar door.

Founded in 2018, Boom Town Beer has produced three, bottled beers named after areas in the Marlborough region. Not yet with a cellar door, the unique taste of the Boom Town beers can be found while sitting out in the sun at many of Marlborough’s brilliant locations including Vines Village Café and the wonderful lodges down the sounds.

Also be sure to check out the annual Marlborough Beer Festival in October each year. Join in on a classic afternoon of both sessional & craft beers with some fantastic food matches.
