“Amazing range of beers with a great, chilled out vibe. The staff were so friendly, funny and helpful. We were only in Wellington two days but we came here twice because of the lovely atmosphere, friendly (and knowledgeable) staff and incredible beer selection. I didn’t catch the name of the girl that served us the second time (only that her eyeshadow was on point) but she was exceptional. She was as amazing and knowledgeable about beer as she was beautiful!” –Sarah B.

“Hit the Brewbar for lunch and it was superb. Great seating with a view of the harbor and staff that made our meal a delight. Simple food served in quantities that won’t overwhelm.

“Just around the corner from my daughter’s ex-workplace (big shout out to Mandatory Menswear!), is one of their favourite watering holes. How fortuitous to be about 50m away from each other! For a working craft brewery, it’s very tidy retail space, even though the brewing tanks are in plain view. The rest of the decor is pretty swish and funky, with great bursts of colour to brighten up the semi-industrial feel.” –Reece Benson
