This is currently the only operating brewery on Waiheke, and really one of only two places you can find decent beer (The Cove, which is in town, is the other one). Four house beers are available, in addition to the house wine and a ginger soda. Really cool space, with bean-bag chairs, archery, chess, plenty of outdoor seating, and other activities. Really a pretty chill place to hang out. The beers are average at best. Ultimately, if youíre looking for good beer, youíre really better off in Auckland and completely skipping Waiheke. That said, there are a ton of halfway decent wineries on the island, and itís an absolutely beautiful place to walk around and explore, so the island is worth visiting in itís own right. So, yeah, if you come to Waiheke, itís worth stopping in for a flight.

On beautiful Waiheke Island, about a 45 minute sail from downtown Auckland, this brewery overlooks the vineyard of the attached Onetangi Road Vineyards. Offers a selection of local meat, cheese, breads etc. Friendly staff. Not a very busy place in the winter when I was there although I suspect in the summer the island is crawling with tourists. Beers are decent if a little restrained. The best is probably their Full Malty.
