I was doing wine tours on a tandem bike and luckily I was steering the thing because as soon as we left Cloudy Bay I stumbled upon this place. Moa's surrounded by vines a little beer oasis amongst the vineyards I thought a detour was in order. The setting is beautiful. we spent most of our time outside sitting in the courtyard and it was a lovely place for a pint. Not much going on inside, a small bar with a helpful bartended behind it, lots of beer just hanging around waiting for someone to buy it. I doubt anyone stays inside for all that long, not much going on and its just so nice outside. We nearly had the place to ourselves, a couple others breaking up their wine tours, very peaceful setting, I could've sat there all day I had a new release called Pacific North West American Pale Ale and it was great, perhaps it got an unfair advantage as I was drinking nothing but wine all day. No food that I noticed but I didn't look very hard either, my beer was only 5$ and for this part of the world that's a major bargain. Wirth a stop fro sure if your looking to break up the endless amount of wineries in the area.
