Located amongst the bustle of lower Queen and the Quay. Four taps of Kiwi micros. Very cafe in every sense but more than handy for a quick beer and a sit down. Regularly busy with the steady flow of walking traffic.

Called the glass box since it’s a see-through cafe bar. Small NZ craft beer selection on tap with a few bottles. Nothing special. Kind of a gimmick given you’re in the downtown central business district where a lot of tourists come to shop.

It’s basically a glass box cafe at the bottom of Queen Street that doubles as a quiet yet fun little place for a drop of craft. Rotating taps to choose of stuff that’s well worth a crack from with a handful of bottles. Seating is mostly undercover outside though there’s a few indoors. Friendly and helpful staff willing to give tasters and be of assistance. The beer list might not be the most exciting but it’s well worth a look in if in the area for somewhere to drink that’s a little out of the norm. Also within spitting distance of the bus station, ferry port and several decent Downtown watering holes. That they were playing AC/DC and Motörhead was a bonus, of course, but well received by me at least...

This was my first stop in New Zealand, as my flight landed at 5 am and this place opened at 7. It’s basically a small coffee bar with a ton of outdoor seating right near the harbor at the foot of Queen Street. The owner is trying to do his bit for craft beer in Auckland, offering four taps to local microbreweries. They have a connection with Brothers Beer, and some staff work at both. All were very friendly and very knowledgeable, with good avice on the local beer scene. This should be your first stop in Auckland, well worth a visit and a chat.
