New Zealand's thirst city: A guide to Dunedin's breweries

Wellington might be known as the craft beer capital, but Dunedin was brewing before it was cool.

The southern city is synonymous with Speight’s, the oldest working brewery in New Zealand, established in 1876. Then in 1992, a local man named Richard Emerson started another brewery that would be one of the forerunners of the craft beer scene, redefining brewing in this country.

Several more have since joined them, from tiny taprooms down inner-city alleys, to cellar doors in the suburbs. Click here for a guide to Dunedin’s breweries. What's your favourite local brewer? Tell us in the comments below.

Warehouse Precinct: Eat your way around Dunedin's New York-style foodie district

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

Not so long ago, Dunedin’s Warehouse Precinct was a part of town few would bother to venture to.

Not so long ago, Dunedin’s Warehouse Precinct was a part of town few would bother to venture to.

The area a few blocks south of the Octagon was once the commercial heart of the city, back in the gold rush days when Dunedin was the largest and wealthiest city in New Zealand. But over time, the grand old buildings had been neglected, turned into shabby student flats or car parks.

In recent years, the area has undergone a major revitalisation – and like New York’s Meatpacking District, the Warehouse Precinct has been transformed into a buzzing destination. Walls have been splashed with street art, buildings have been restored to their former glory and new businesses have moved in.

It’s also become a foodie haven, home to everything from boutique bakeries to microbreweries, from burger joints to fine-dining spots. Here’s a guide to eating your way around the Warehouse Precinct.
