The Tui Brewery has been through a lot in its 127 years including the Pahiatua earthquake (1934), the infamous Arnold Nordmeyer Black Budget, a couple of World Wars and some vicious rumours of closure. But the Tui Brewery certainly hasn’t closed. Over the past 12 months the team at Tui have been busy redeveloping the Tui Brewery making it fit for purpose so the team are able to brew Tui on site for at least another 127 years.
The home of Tui on State Highway 2, Magatainoka is proud to unveil its new bespoke brewery as part of the $4.5 million investment in the Tui Brewery site. This includes a brand new German engineered Brewhouse, which arrived in seven containers and has taken a dedicated team a few months to install. And now that the setup is complete, work begins to lay down the first brew.
To celebrate the new Brewhouse, Tui is giving their faithful customers, and the valued community the opportunity to be part of a ‘Roof Shout’ free brewery tour, for the entire region. Tui Passports (vouchers) for free brewery tours are available in Central Region on premise outlets, regional newspapers and on Tui’s Facebook page.
The seven-storey, heritage-listed Tui Brewery Tower, which was built in 1931, is still undergoing the final stage of earthquake strengthening works and is due to be completed in February 2017.
