Brothers Beer, City Works Depot - Bar Review

Vibe

Welcome to craft beer geek and hipster heaven. Retro 1970’s couches, distressed timber bar leaners, and a cool array of pop culture references – Tin Tin, Thunderbirds and toy robots – all combine in a spacious warehouse interior. It’s the kind of place you’d love to have as your own personal rumpus room. With chefs Al Brown and Michael Van De Elzen both planning restaurant openings nearby, the resurrected City Works Depot is one of Auckland’s happening precincts.

Service
Hip and laidback, with a strong passion for the stellar and ever-changing selection of craft beers available.

Drinks List
Eighteen different taps showcase craft beers from New Zealand, Australia and beyond. Many of the brews are available just for a limited time, so to see what’s new sign up for the bar’s activities on Twitter (@brothersbeernz) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/BrothersBeerNZ). To complicate things for the indecisive drinker, another 200 or so bottled beers are also available. All tap and bottled beer can also be purchased for at home consumption.

Feeling Peckish?
Partner a hoppy Pale Ale with one of Brothers’ thin-crust pizzas as you decide which beer to dive into next.

The Bottom Line
Welcome to another great craft beer destination in Auckland, rapidly making up ground with Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson as the country’s best cities for fans of interesting and flavour-packed brews.

A Reason To Return
For the cut and thrust of the Akarana Backgammon League (on the last Sunday of every month), regular DJ and band gigs on Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons, and the impending release of Brothers’ own beers brewed on site. The first brews will be ready mid-April apparently, but if they’re running a bit late there’s loads of other hoppy alternatives to keep curious drinkers satisfied.
