Enjoy our Beer Garden

Settle in for a beer.....   We have Emerson's beer on tap (usually Bookbinder) as well as all the popular brews in bottles and cans. What could be better than a cold one after a hard day on the Otago Central Rail Trail?  And beer on tap is the best beer of all.  Fresh!

Enjoy our beer garden and our hospitality.  Talk beer with Annie, a long-time, homebrewer (now retired).

As Mr Emerson himself says "beer tastes best when shared".
