Amazing beer selection. Some say best in NZ. Amazing glassware selection too. Taps for fill your own have incredible beers, Emersons pilsner and bookbinder are always availiable, and one or two of the taps change frequently. Emersons Brewers Reserve every month makes for an exciting visit. They even run beer tastings and tasting competitions. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They get to know you after a while. Discount on all beers for SOBA members too. Oh yeah, theres wines and spirits there too...

Many Craft beer available local to New Zealand. Also many exports that I had only read about I was able to try for the first time. Coming from Canada I was happy to see besides Labatt Blue available there was also Blanche de Chambly from Unibroue.
Canít go wrong when they have a mosiac of Michael Jackson created in burnt toast!

Best beer stop in th country so far. Pretty much every craft brewer has a product or two (or ten!) on offer here. I found 3 breweries that I hadnít come across in bottles yet, and I found a few hard-to-get gems as well (Three Boys Wild Plum, Twisted Hop Enigma, Epic Mayhem). Some quality belgian ales as well. Lots of nice glassware. The staff who helped me really knew their stuff and bent over backward to help me out. If you have the time, this place is well worth seeking out.

A great shop for booze hounds. Regional support micro breweries and often have treats on tap - last week I managed to get some Epic Mayhem which was selling fast due only to WOM since it was under a blank tap and not on the price list. Shelf space is an issue though - they donít have their whole imported range in the fridge but all the NZ brews are. I havenít found a larger range anywhere else in NZ or Australia though occasionally other retailers do have beers that regional do not have.

I havenít come across a better bottle store in NZ, and gave them my patronage on several occassions when down in Wellington over the past two weeks. A brilliant selection of NZ and foreign beers, and the staff are really friendly as well. You Wellingtonians have all the luck.

A nice walk-in cooler with a vast selection. If you want to fill your growler or flagon they offer around 18 taps. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful.

One of the best selections in the lower end of the North Island. Close to the Basin Reserve and the Tunnel. Few of the floor or counter workers in New Zealand actually know anything about what they are selling but the folks at Regional are usually friendly enough. They have maybe 8 or 10 taps for self-fill recyclable bottles which are fairly good prices. Usually has parking, Since most alcoholic beverages in New Zealand are over priced (Epic Mayhem and Armageddon sell in Missouri for less than they do in Wellington!) it is not really possible to give any pub or store in NZ a good price rating given that their beers sell for less overseas.
