Great place to sample a huge range of craft beers, both local and imported. No distractions with scenery or views in this basement drinking establishment. Great place to visit for a beer or three on a wet, or cold day.

Definitely a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Wellington. Huge variety of many different beers. Prices are a bit high so check the menu before ordering.

Attractive underground location. Numerous beers on tap and many more in bottles and cans. Clean and bright with ample seating and tables. Live bands some nights. Downtown location is convenient to hotels, restaurants and other bars.

We stopped in for a light dinner on the recommendation of a Wellingtonian we'd met. We weren't disappointed. Off an alley and down a flight of stairs is a cozy, sort-of-Japanese space with a very impressive list of craft and cult beers, dumplings and small...More
