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...

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 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.

One of those very few stores that does a very good job of both wine and beer. I gather this is the leading retailer of craft beer in the Wellington region at it shows. The range probably spans ~50 true micros and most of the big guns are stocked Ė Emersons, Martinborough, Tuatara, Moa, Harringtons etc. Ok range of imports as well, including a few Cantillons, De Dolle, Saison DuPont , Boon etc (inc gear Iíve never seen in Australia). Only beef is that nearly all NZ beers are chilled Ė not great if one wants to bring some beers home. Good range of high end single malts as well.

One of the best bottle stores youíll ever come across. And, even better, it has improved in the last six months!
