Craft beer breweries are big in Nelson. Sprig & Fern on Hardy Street is one of five Sprig & Fern outlets throughout Nelson, pouring 100% natural beers and ciders from the Nelson-based Sprig & Fern Brewery. There is indoor and courtyard seating, a good bistro menu, and there's often live music on Saturday night. If you're looking for an even more casual tipple, the Sprig & Fern at nearby Milton Street has tasty, all-day bar food but also lets you order fish-and-chips or burgers from the takeaway shop next door—and they'll deliver!
