Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Greymouth, New Zealand, 7805.

The Speight’s Ale House Greymouth is situated in a category 1 historic building, opposite the railway station in the heart of Greymouth. The building, known as ‘The Brick House’, was built in 1909 by the Government to house numerous Government Departments. In the 1990s as Government departments contracted in size, the building became vacant and fell into disrepair. It was earmarked for demolition until a local businessman saw its potential and in 2006 strengthened and renovated the building to enhance its beautiful character. The land and building was then bought by two ‘Southern Men’ who commissioned a further high quality fit-out to accommodate the Greymouth Speights Ale House with the Public Health Organisation leasing the upstairs space.

We have visited this pub once, seen 7 different beers and tried 1 of them.
