Nicely laid out alcohol selection with an extensive craft beer range. A good shot at finding South Island brews, with a range of Welly in the mix too. The sour/barrel aged 8 Wired stuff is available here. A better selection will be found over at Meenans however.

Fantastic selection in this supermarket. I was really amazed to find supermarkets in New Zealand with such an amazing selection of local craftbeer and even craftbeer from other parts of the world. Here I bought 8-Wired Batch 18 BA IS. Try to get something like that in a supermarket in Holland... Great achievement of the NZ craftbeer scene. And nice to see supermarkets who are open for products which are more dedicated to quality than quantity.. :-)

UPDATE: They’ve renovated the layout and organized their beer selection for the better. There is a special area for NZ craft beers and they’ve done well in filling it with a broad selection. The imports are organized in a separate area with beers from Germany, Belgium, UK, and Austria. They even have had the good sense to put the Green Man barley wine in the "Premium Selections" showcase behind glass! Choice!
