One of the more outstanding selections of beer on tap and bottled, we were drawn right in. Most of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable to recommend similar beers to our individual tastes. Chicken wings with spicy sauce are a definite recommendation.

Malthouse certainly has a great range of beers, both bottled and draught. I did feel that the barman could have been a bit more helpful but the great beer makes up for everything. Seating very basic!

A busy bar on Courtney Place serving excellent local craft beers by hand pulled pump, kegs and a vast array of local and overseas bottled beers. A great place for a tipple.

Massive range of beers, probably the biggest in Wellington. Large smoking area and food was pretty standard.
