Great beer, music isn't so loud that you can't talk to your friends, a great place to meet after work.

“Good beer and food, what more could you ask for”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Friendly place with a good choice of craft beers. Particularly like the IPA. Hard to believe it was 6.5% by volume. Good range of internal and external seating. Some live music.

“Delicious”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Aside from the great beer - the food here must be one of the best in town. It is fresh and hot at your table.
The staff are really friendly and helpful.
We were lucky on the night we went there as both beer makers were on site and we got to learn all about them and their creations.
Take their advice if you wnat to try and few brews - they can put them in the correct order for you to benefit most from.
Dont start with the coffee beer - but as an ender - it is beauty!

“Hop heaven”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

If you like craft beer, then you'll love this place. Best beer in Rotorua plus tasty food. Outdoor seating available and they're open pretty much all day.

The stock their own craft beer (the Galaxy IPA is my favorite) plus a variety of other NZ and international beers.
