A real brewpub. NZ seems to lack this type of establishment. Great food, service and lots of seasonal beers.
One of the 2 brewers is always on hand to discuss the beers with you and they are friendly and welcoming.
Would recommend to anyone visiting Auckland. The central location is excellent as getting around Aucklandís main areas is not easy.

Nice brewpub located down by the harbor in the Central Business District. It is not fancy but does provide good beers to consume. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. They had 5 regular beers on tap and 4 seasonal beers to choose from. They have typical pub grub but that is to compliment the beers they serve. The brewpub is worth a visit especially on a rainy afternoon in Auckland.

Large and spacious venue with high ceilings, windows and a certain modern gastropub feel. A couple of house brews on offer. Beers varied in quality, one particular was solid, a couple others were rough going. I did have a negative experience with a particular staff member here, which I rarely encounter. Extremely pushy and piss poor attitude, which bugged me. Was happy to get out of there to be honest.

Wandering through Auckland one evening Had just been to a bar by the Quayside and found the Brewery on Britomart on my way back to my hotel Turned out to be a fortunate find ! Lovely old historic building just like an urban pub in the UK and beautifully restored Turned out to be serving some excellent beer brewed on the premises - definitely some of the best ale I tasted in New Zealand Bar service friendly and helpful and was introduced to the Head Brewer - we had a long conversation ! I had already eaten but I gather the Brewery is making itself a reputation for good food as well as good beer Warmly recommended - if I lived in Auckland I would become a regular !
