Large place with lots of benches, tables, barstools inside and out on porches. Car park was full at lunchtime. Four beers and a cider available in a tasting paddle, as well as a couple of interesting beers on draft, and a few Hallertau bottles. Beers were tasty. Food was OK, but I should have had the ribs. Servers were friendly and efficient. Liberty brought their brewing equipment with them when they joined recently, so the brewery portion will be refitted and be visible from the bar. Nice place, headed in a good direction.

A must visit. Wonderful beers and a lovely environment to enjoy the awesome Hallertau beers. Accessible only by car but more than worth it. Thereís limited 750ml bottles available for takeaway in the fridge, including the barrel aged and funky stuff. Friendly and chatty staff. Great to chat with Steve. Need to get back soon!

Great relaxed brewpub with 4 standard taps, a seasonal and a guest, along with a fridge full of NZ craft beer and the old international. Brilliant place to spend a lazy weekend. Shame it is so far to get there, but maybe thatís why I love it.
