A nice combination of craft beer and mainstream venue which caters well to both. 53 taps last count, ranging from Heineken and Carlsberg through English ales (Fullers etc.), big name Germans (Hofbrau, Schneider etc.) to an extensive range of US, European (Brewdog etc.) and a large selection of Kiwi crafts. Good friendly knowledgable staff too. Good spot.

A few empty taps on a couple of visits but generally a decent selection of draught beer. Lacking character of other Welly beer venues and appears to attract a more ’city’ crowd. All good, and warrants a look from time to time as some gems do appear.

Came across this place before we went to Beervana. Staff were friendly and helpful, didn’t know a great deal of their product but the bar was only about 2 weeks old so that can be forgiven. Free pizza was handed out during the night which is always nice. Cool little place which was pumping by 7pm. Not a great tap selection but the bottles more than made up for that. Nice to see all the Westvlet’s there and some other hard to get US stuff. Great NZ selection. Nice place
