Capa  (322) Kitsap, Washington | January 16, 2015
A dimly lit basement bar that was surprisingly difficult to find, though that might be more my fault than anything (they have a sign they place on the main street but it wasnít up the night we were trying to find the place). The entrance is not on the main drag, instead just inside an alley. Anyhow, we stopped in on an off night as we were there with only one other couple. Nicely set up bar area with a lounge room off the main part. Wide and eclectic selection of taps and bottles. A destination bar for sure. Knowledgeable and friendly barkeeper. Iíd love to come back when itís a bit more lively as Iím sure it is a hotspot.

A small but well-formed basement area host to a trendy bar. Fairly busy on a Thursday evening having just finished a Craft Beer College event. Beer menu - both current and upcoming - available on screens around the bar. An interesting, well-priced tap list and extensive bottle range. Decorated with beer posters and paraphernalia which always holds my attention. Good and a fun little place for a drink and somewhere to hang out but nothing about it blew me away.

Maybe saturday night wasnít the time to go - it was party time and that dominated the atmosphere. Staff were good, but busy. Beer range was reasonable, and quality was very good. Food was fine - what I got was not what I expected based on what I ordered but was very nice.

beer-yum  (33) Wellington, New Zealand | January 14, 2014| Updated June 6, 2015
Well deserved reputation as ítheí place to go for beer in Wellington (and likely New Zealand truth be told). While the number of taps is small - itís the fluid emanating from them that is important - and in that regard they definitely live up to their motto of "no crap on tap"! There no crap anywhere else either. The food selection, while limited, makes up for it in being unusual, interesting, and delicious. But itís the beer that is the star here (which is as it should be in a premier beer bar)!

Jimthechap  (51) Christchurch, New Zealand | January 14, 2014
Mrs Jimthechap and I arrived shortly after opening and so we more or less had the lace to ourselves. It was good to finally inspect this place as it has a considerable reputation. We were greeted by the barman and serious beer-nerd conversation ensued. Tasters were poured and more beer-nerd conversation followed. Mrs Jimthechap became steadily less impressed that her wedding anniversary was becoming a vehicle for me to talk about beer. Anyway, interesting place with brewery artwork. Well-chosen tap beers and more bottles of beer that I havenít reviewed before than I have found anywhere else in New Zealand. I needed a good month and an unlimited cash supply to do justice to this place. I will come back... I have to come back.

3fourths  (1435) Boulder, Colorado | January 4, 2014| Updated June 7, 2014
Basement-level dedicated craft beer bar known throughout Wellington as being at the top of the game. I found the ambiance relaxing and comfortable when I visited during my first night in town, and I thought it would be a place to return, but I instead found myself busy enough the other nights in town that I never made it back. For a traveler to New Zealand, it has an incredibly deep selection of Kiwi micros. Dozen-plus drafts with 3/4 NZ beer and the rest imported micros (want Rogue on tap fresh as can be?). The Kiwi scene has itís share of wacky beek geek releases, but overall thereís more actual beer than flavored / treated beer... and being in New Zealand is all about new world hops and old world malt... the treasures of this country feature savory English maris otter malt with juicy, bright south island hops.

Karori  (8) , New Zealand | September 12, 2013
Best bar in wellington, in my opinion. The staff know their stuff and are always happy to recommend a beer and give a sample. Food is excellent quality, but a little (understandably) lacking in options. Beer range is excellent. Customers are a varied bunch. Also a great SOBA discount Sunday to Wednesday.

Good lineup of taps that are constantly rotating. A number of internationals along with great local stuff. Staff knowledgable about beer. Some rare (and very pricey) bottles. Better to stick with draught. Food was good, but limited menu and portions small and not value for money-best to eat elsewhere.

Enjoyed this place a fair amount. Nice selection of beers, especially the bottled beer. I had some dumplings that were also nice. Definitely one of the top 3 places in Wellington!
