Now reopened under new management. A German themed pub/restaurant with the full Renaissance range on tap and guests from Emersons, Mussel Inn and Dales. Opposite the Renaissance brewery, the kit can be seen through the window. Cozy wooden interior and huge garden area outside. Pizzas remain on the menu, accompanied by German dishes, naturally.

On the grounds of Renaissance Brewing is the Dodson Street Beer Garden, a German-themed restaurant/bar with over 20 taps that include a few one-offs. Inside you have a German Stube atmosphere with vaulted ceilings and long community tables, while outside they maintain a pretty grounds full of tables and benches and birdbaths and a giant chess set. Beer quality was decent though nothing I had seemed to wow me. Friendly hausfrau during my early afternoon visit was full of smiles and didnít act inconvenienced in the least, which definitely reminds you that youíre drinking in New Zealand and not Germany. Certainly worth a stop if youíre in Marlborough.

This is a little piece of Deutschland on the South Island, not just because of the bierkeller and biergarten atmosphere and the traditional German food menu, but also because the proprietors hail from Germany. Itís basically the brewery tap for Renaissance and has a huge number from that range, with the brewery equipment visible through a window. Well worth a stop.

Great beer garden with giant chess set. Interesting old building gives a British pub feel downstairs. Nice to be able to see whatís brewing at Renaissance brewery next door. New owners (spring 2012) means they are the most reliable in Blenheim for being open when they say they will be.

When we got there the place seemed closed, but we were lucky; the owner was just checking the installation in the holiday season and showed us around. Friendly chap, even got some free beers. And well the Renaissance beers are some of the best in New Zealand, so thatís just great. :-)

This was a great find. Showcasing Renaissanceís increasingly broad range of brews. Nice semi-dungeon feel. Willing to offer tastings of all beers. Great pizzas.
