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!
Wow, unbelievable selection for a brewpub. I think they had something like 25-30 of their beers on tap. Reeee...wait for it...dick! Props for that. Nice food too. Service could have been better, but that doesnít take away from the legititude of this estab. For beers and dinner, go here.
2016-05-30. We arrived late on a Monday night only to find out that a) They had about 26 of their own beers on tap and b) they were closing soon! A bit stunned - I had not realized that they had so many taps, or so many of their own beers on at once. We ordered two sampler trays and worked our way through them while the staff closed up! They were great at still answering our questions while they went about their work. The beers ranged from very good to not great, but considering some of the more unusual/adventurous offerings thatís not surprising. Decor is fairly sleek, and relatively large compared to some other places in town, it is possibly a bit more posh than my preference during the day, but this late it was very quiet and cozy. With so many tap offerings I regret not coming here first in the evening, and finishing at some of the other places that stay open later. Well worth a visit.
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.
beer-yum (40) Wellington, New Zealand | January 14, 2014| Updated February 7, 2014
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
