Standard-ish but very good beer bar in the Wellington CBD. Lots of taps, lots of common stuff but some out there, and loads of bottles. The ’biance trends toward standard bar but there is a big beer presence and it’s fairly intimate considering. Good place to hang out midday in the city.

It’s clearly a drinking establishment with a focus on beer. It’s a bit industrial. Staff were helpful and friendly. Didn’t try the food but they clearly had some and it looked OK. The range was good with about 20 taps and many many bottles.

beer-yum  (40) Wellington, New Zealand | January 14, 2014| Updated August 8, 2015
The original, and still one of the top beer bars in Wellington. Selection (both tap and bottled) is second to none. Ambiance and service are great but the food selection leaves one in no doubt that this is a liquid bread establishment - go somewhere (anywhere) else for the solid variety.

3fourths  (1537) Boulder, Colorado | January 4, 2014| Updated February 13, 2014
Modern interior, wall of coolers behind the bar with different temperature regulators for each depending on style. Clean interior, attention paid to details. Dozen or so drafts with over 100 bottles, this is a serious beer bar in Wellington and a mandatory visit for the beer traveler passing through town. They stock some grey market US bottles if that suits your fancy, but I was quite pleased drinking a Bach Brewing Czechmate during my viit (Saaz on steroids!).

A wonderful tap selection with some rotating beers. Nice food menu. I liked the seating area outside that was covered. A deep bottled beer selection with each cooler individually temperature controlled.

Very pub-like place with a large bar and a few outdoor tables. Tap list is solid. Service is excellent, and the locals are friendly and outgoing. A great place for a pint - or two.

This was the first serious sit-down leg of my Wellington trip where I arranged to meet my friend Brian Eerwriter. The bar is quite a stylish little joint. I was expecting wooden panelling and British pub-like decor but got a fair modern urban trendy type place. The tap selection is extensive, the bottle selection is nothing short of impressive. I didn’t have any food, but I am led to believe it is rather good as well. Comfortable surroundings and (crucially for this prematurely old man) the ambient noise is better than tolerable. Swift, friendly and knowledgable service adds to the overall impression that this place is a must-visit and also that I’m sorry I could only go there once on this trip. A definite must return.
