With a dizzying selection of craft beers, a stunning fitout and a secret rooftop bar, this is an establishment dedicated to the celebration of beer in all its finest forms.
Located in the landmark Wharf Police Building on Quay Street, Brew on Quay specialises in the very best beers from New Zealand and around the world.
The bar’s interior lovingly preserves many of the building’s historic elements, including the richly wood-panelled police front offices, reception counter and strong room. Elsewhere the space has been cleverly modernised with numerous witty design features.
The spacious, high-ceilinged central bar area opens on to many pleasing nooks and crannies, including a lavishly draped and gilded parlour space, mahogany-panelled ‘cells’ and – the crowning glory – the open rooftop terrace.
Frequently busy with after-work drinkers and Vector Arena event-goers, Brew on Quay nevertheless retains the relaxed vibe and friendly atmosphere of a true ‘local’ bar.
Fine beer and food to match
Naturally, the Brew on Quay drinks list offers a glorious array of craft beers, including Epic Pale Ale on tap and another craft tap beer that changes monthly. In total there are 102 local and international brews to choose from – a tribute to the location at 102 Quay – and wine drinkers are also well catered for.
In complement, there’s a fine menu of hearty brew-matched food given a contemporary foodie twist and just a stone’s throw from Vector Arena, Brew on Quay is perfectly located for a spot of pre- or post-event sustenance.
