Hundreds of people turned out for the opening of the new Emerson's Brewing Company in Dunedin today.
Founder Richard Emerson formally opened the $25 million building, and his mother Ingrid Emerson cut the ribbon.
The land near Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium was bought for the project in 2014.
The new site will employ 35 people, compared to 15 at the old Emerson's brewery nearby.
Brewing capacity will be about 2.5 million litres annually, compared to 1 million at the old site, and the brewery is expected to eventually reach about 8 million litres.
Projected turnover is $40 million per annum.
