The oldest commercial building in Marlborough originally served as a Malthouse for the brewery established in 1858 by Henry Dodson, who was joined by Henry Adam Ball. The business was conducted under the name of Dodson and Ball. In 1873 Adam Ball sold his shares in the business to Henry Dodson and the brewery was renamed "The Wairau Brewery". The brewery continued in the Dodson family until 1915, producing a yearly output of 700 hogsheads, equivalent to 151,200 litres. 1915 Edward Ball Brewery 1921 Marlborough Brewing Company 1946 Kain Brewing Company 1954 Coker & Mills Ice Cream Factory 1971 Rose & Jim Food Distributors 1987 Grove Mill Winery & Restaurant 1992 Marlborough Brewing Company 1994 Whitehaven Winery & Restaurant 2005 Renaissance Brewing Company 2012 Dodson Street Beer Garden Dodson Street Beer Garden proudly presents one of the largest selection of craft beers and ciders on tap in New Zealand.
