Forgotten 43 Brewing Tour and Tasting

Begun in the sheds of two Taranaki locals – mates with a passion for quality all-grain craft beer and a love for all things Taranaki.

Forgotten 43 Brewing is located in Stratford at the beginning of State Highway 43, known locally as the Forgotten World Highway. Owned and operated by a group of enthusiastic locals with a taste for brewing quality craft beer. In the spirit of those early settlers, they are forging ahead with their passion to create quality craft beer.

Come and meet the brewers, hear the story of how they started and see how beer is made in their boutique brewery. You will also get the opportunity to sample their brews and take home an exclusive Limited
Release beer!

Note there are two different tour dates, please ensure you select the correct date when booking.
