With craft beer becoming more popular than ever and the number of breweries expanding, it’s essential to know where the best spots to get your fill of it are. Here’s some of the gems to be found in Taranaki.
Is there anything finer than the match-made-in-heaven combo of pizza and beer? Probably not. Unless it’s pizza and beer in a beautiful and stylish courtyard. You can order one of the cracking homemade pizzas, watch it cooking away in the wood oven and sit back and enjoy a pint of hoppy nectar. Ms. White has the best selection of craft ale in this little courtyard, which is shared by a couple of other food joints, and you’d be forgiven for spending hour upon hour here on a fine day. Epic, Sawmill Brewery, Urbanaut and Hawkers Beer are all represented here, as well as many more. The selection will keep you coming until you’ve tried the set.
Here’s another bar that has cottoned onto the notion that people love beer, and people love pizza. So why not give the people what they want? You can get tasty pizza for lunch and dinner at The Mayfair, washed down with lashings of the regions’ best craft beer. And after dinner, the club is open until late so there’s plenty more time for you to try every single beer they have on tap.
You don’t have to be the sharpest knife in the draw to know what lies in store for you when you walk through the doors of Liquorland. Along with every other alcohol under the sun – more or less – there is a very extensive craft beer collection to peruse. As in life, so in Liquorland. When confronted by this mammoth choice, things can sometimes get a bit daunting. However, hold firm, and when in doubt remember that at the end of the day it’s beer, and you can’t ever really go wrong.
