The entrees are fantastic - we had the lamb skewers. My partner really enjoyed the taster selection of beers. I really enjoyed the lamb for my main, however my partner didn't enjoy his steak as much as he expected - it was overcooked and the cut wasn't great. The potato mash is nice but average. Dessert made up for the... More

Loved the way we got to try all the wares and a great friendly set up. It was a recommended stop off while waiting to join friends, and we think most people would enjoy this interesting local craft brewery. Beers are not cheap, but very nice.

Really great atmosphere and perfect spot to spend your evening.Over two nights we sampled most of the beer, which I was really impressed with. We also ate dinner one night and the food was amazing. Highly recommend the crumbed brie and pork belly.

Went there yesterday with my sister and our kids. I Ordered beef cheeks as i wanted to know what the big deal was with beef cheeks, although nice, it tasted really similar to beef stew. Apparently my eyes were bigger than my stomach because couldn't finish it all. The portion sizes are huge which is good. Just need to starve... More

1st time in the Rotorua branch of Brew, its very different to the TUranga branch Im used to. We really enjoyed ourselves, the atmosphere was really cosy. It was a great place to get out of the cold & catch up with old friends. It was a bit busy to order food but i would definitely come back again
