So I came here for a quick spot of lunch, since they had a fixed paired food and beer menu on for the craft beer week around Beervana. I ended up staying for about five hours, since the brewers were in getting a tour. The TreHugger brewers spotted me and adopted me, buying me beers left and right. Nice people. Oh, and the bar itself was fine, brewing kit bang in the middle of everything. Good tap list amd the food was OK. Nice place.

Centrally-located brewpub offering 8 or so taps and a limited bottle selection, they tout food pairings (hence the name), but the menu didnít look very inspiring. They make a wide array of different styles, most of them New World/Western in design. I sampled a Pilsner and drank a session IPA and found them both decent but lacking character.

Now brewing on location - four house beers and cider. Huge circular wall of taps with many familiar beers but also special and seasonals too. I always find beers here I donít see elsewhere around town, so bonus points there. The venue itself i find to be dark, tacky and lacking soul. Itís not the most comfortable beer spot in Welly.

Hard to get a read here. At first glance just a load and slightly crass bar but saved through a very solid tap and beer list. Not crazy geek (ie donít come here looking for Scandi RISs) but rather a good cross section of establised NZ beers. Music too loud but service good. Looks like they are setting up a brewery inside (?) so assume they will brew their own in due course.

Nice facility with bar, table and outdoor seating. Excellent service with a good selection of beers on tap (for NZ) that include about 6 brewed on premises but most are guest taps. Beers include some international selections.

I loved the boardwalk at the entrance at the top of the stairs of the bar and a nice looking joint in general. Service was friendly and knowledgeable, but we werenít asked if we wanted food at any stage (a notable point for Mrs Jimthechap). We enjoyed the selection of board games available to help us kill a bit of time and the toilets were clean and stylish. Tap selection was good, but the fries we ordered failed the tomato sauce test - commercial mass-produced bland stuff but Iím told to watch that space. Iíll definitely be back to find out.

Secreted away upstairs down a small street in the centre of the city, this is a roomy bar with plentiful seating space and visible, functional brewing area. A diverse tap selection (40ish) of local and further afar Kiwi craft offerings, a handful of ciders and several of their own brews can be found here. Helpful staff offered tasters to those in my party less accustomed to such a vast array. We all ate - I opted for the pulled pork burger: recommended - and we were all in agreement that the food was top notch and very reasonably priced. Their menu and staff also provide beer/food pairing suggestions which I thought a nice point of difference. A must if in the city for beer, food or both.

A welcome addition to the Wellington beer scene (a brewpub). Has a great selection of beer on tap - both in-house and competitor (mainly domestic) brews. Staff is friendly, service is good, and the food iselection s better than most other beer bars in town.

beerbrat99  (21) Shanghai, China | August 13, 2013
I liked the beer list but found the printed menu to only list about 20 beers. After awhile I noticed some chalkboards on a darkly lit wall with another 15 selections. In general the bar area is very dark and it can be difficult to get a beer if youíre on the wrong side of the barrel. The inside space smelled a bit like a wet dog. Cool outside patio seating!

I really enjoyed this brewery I spendet 8 hours over here and had 5 tasting paddels, almost all off there beers were good. the own brewed special beers were also very good. This is a pub were you should spent time to enjoy the crafty 40 different taps!
