Not all to my taste: Too strong and too "hoppy". It is difficult to find a beer with less than 5% alcohol. Strength of flavour and alcohol is not everything. Subtlety can add character to beers. Been here a couple of different times. Good, but...More

We walked here from our hotel, which was handy. Loved the beers. Loved the vibe. Food was available the day we visited. Looking forward to returning soon.

Iron Fist is located near half a dozen other breweries in an industrial park. Parking can be a bit challenging and the signage on the back of the building (from where you approach) is not very obvious. Once inside you are greeted by plenty of...More

The place is not huge, but can accommodate a big crowd, and what interesting it's a dog friendly (I saw a few dogs around today). My selection of the beers - first was Nelson the ImPALEr - extra pale ale, light, but little bit on...More
