A nice out of the way location and cosy old school premises. Tap selection is always good and often excellent. Food is a notch higher than usual too. Service is variable though - the one thing they could definitely improve.

An excellent establishment. I knew we were onto a good thing when I spotted the Yeastie Boys sign from down the road! First class cask ale on tap from Townshend and Cassels, and a good selection of other keg beers. Food was simple but excellent and the ’two for one Tuesday’ special offer knocks your socks of for value. Staff could probably help out inexperienced punters a bit more - I witnessed some a little overwhelmed by the selection of unfamiliar beers. If you’re in Wellington, this is a must.

Very much a beer geek and drinking establishment. Very helpful staff, Comfortable place. About 10 pumps and many bottled beers. Food was available, but I didn’t try it. Good music, but not intrusive.

Busy with a generally trendy type of custom and interesting artwork abounds. Service was prompt and friendly with good product knowledge. Plenty of bottled and tap beers to choose from and a bit of a must visit when in Wellington.
A thoroughly enjoyable visit.

Hard to find place up an alley that is not on the tourist maps. Tap lineup good, but not as impressive as some others I have seen. Food was quite good, though a bit pricey. Bottles of everything, but not as good value as the draught. They were busy so it was hard to rate the staff. Door to outside smoking area kept blowing open, which make sitting anywhere near the door unpleasant. Place across the alley also has about 20+ taps, but many more macros then decent craft.

A unique beer list where I found some NZ beers I had not seen elsewhere. Cosy bar area with some solid pizzas. The staff was very knowledgeable about all the beers they offered.

Small place tucked away in an alley and around a corner. Handful of tables out front. Inside is scruffy and lived in, in a good way. Food was very tasty, notches above your average pub fare. Decent enough tap selection, but tons of interesting bottles as well, as visible behind the bar.

The best burger I’ve had in Wellington and good, fresh beer on tap.

Great hip bar. Good vibe.
A good selection of kiwi craft beers on tap, no commercial crap served here. Decent bottle range to match. Staff always friendly and knowledgeable. Service is efficient too, even when busy you don’t have to wait too long for a drink.
Good priced tasty food menu to go with your craft ale.

Such a cool venue. A cafe vibe adds such a relaxing ambiance here. Great tap selection plus a huge fridge full of beery goodies. The focus on NZ micros is wonderful, and I usually find something I haven’t yet tried. Excellent food too - portions are plentiful, off the menu burger rules. Brilliant, friendly staff. The ladies who run LBQ are doing great things here!
