Lighthouse Brewery - Background


Owned by Dick Tout, situated in the heart of Nelson, New Zealand, Lighthouse Brewery is the smallest legal brewery in the country.

Having commissioned Lighthouse Brewery in 1996; Dick is now brewing, packaging, bottling and selling the beer from his Echodale Place store, brewing only 200 litres at a time

Dick's beer has won critical acclaim from both national and international beer tasters

Dick would love to show you around the brewery & give you a taste of his Pilsners, Stouts, Lagers and Dark beers. 

Lighthouse Brewery Range of Beers:

Summer Breeze – Pilsener 4.5%

Cheeky Little Lager – 4.5%

Classic Stout – 5%. Deep, dark black with a fine coffee crema head and a ripe bouquet laced with coffee and chocolate and burned Vogel's toast aromas, a dash of fruit and a tang of green hops in the background. Toasty, ripe palate is also touched with a dash of hop herbals that give it a dry character, gently rich and very long. Has full, well-shaped flavours with hints of chocolate and toast to the very end. Classy stuff. 

Dick’s Dark – 4.5%. Deep amber brown with a light, beige head. Roasted, mellow malt bouquet, soft and floral/fruity with a hint of roasted nuts and chocolate. Floral hops in the first mouthful, too, with a ripe, roasted mid palate that has depth and texture as well as moderate weight and a frisk of hops. Lovely balance and condition, with a sense of being a deep, mild ale, with an excellent dry, hoppy, chocolate fringed finish. Delicious beer, beautifully crafted.

Fug Nose – 4%

Haulashore Bitter – 3.8%. Light head on a golden copper beer with fragrant, floral hops aromas nudged by fruity notes, a slight green tang that is almost minty and clear, crisp malt. Impact of hop frisked, malt pure character leads to a firmly flavoured, well weighted mid palate that is supported by strong hop characters and inviting astringency. Big flavoured, firm beer with a long, dry, hoppy finish. 

Nelson’s Victory Ale – 5.5%

Tasman Bay Pilsener – 4.5% Yellow gold with a light, clean head. Sweetly aromatic hop nose with a clean malt note, fresh and bright with a citrus note and a mildly creamy/funky character. Big, crisp palate, full of aromatic hop flavours and bristly textures, lean and dry, with a mineral note at the finish and a touch of creaminess. Perfect, crisp, well-shaped, lingering, tasting beer with a firm, herbal hop end. All class.
