The best place to drink on Courtney Place
Dec 2020 • Friends
There are so many dodgy drinking dens on Courtney place, it’s refreshing to have a top quality craft beer bar here also. Knowledgeable staff, good selection of beers (and spirits), you can also stand outside and watch the carnage on a Fri/Sat night.

Great beer selection

If the Malthouse doesn't have a beer available is not worth drinking.
Amazing selection of really good NZ craft beers, I love having a few quiets here.

Great craft beer

One of the best places in NZ to try different beers. Several local ones on draft plus many more imported on bottle. Staff is very knowledgeable and prices are ok.

Wide range of beers - need to have a real cask bitter on the hand pump instead of a porter
Feb 2020
Busy bar on Courtney Place - focus on beers from round the world. Lots of keg beers under CO2 - which is fine. Would be much better if it did 2 things:
1: Have Monteiths Original on a tap - I know its is not trendy and has a normal name but it tastes close to a proper English bitter and is a terrific session beer.
2: If you are going to have hand pulled cask beers make sure there is a real bitter on the pump rather than two pumps of porter in the middle of the Wellie "summer". I knows Wellington summers are cooler and windier but it is not porter freezing weather!!

That said - very well worth an hour or two before dinner around Courtney Place - or for a Friday night session.

Craft beers catered for.

Go this place if you want to have a great selection of craft beer! Had a wide selection. Wanted a lager but they didn’t have any - had run out. It’s a popular spot and nice atmosphere. Was told the DJ hangs out above the bar in what appears to be a bird box! Was during the day but would've been rather epic to see.

Want a great beer in a great pub?

Excellent selection of beers. I loved their hoppy range including hazy IPAs. But many others and the juniper IPA excellent. Mainly snack food but the pizza I had was great. Try it. Well supported by helpful staff.

Amazing range of beers available

All roads lead to the Malthouse, amazing array of beers available, something for every taste, if you cant find a beer you like here you don't like beer.

BEER!
Sep 2019
I stopped in several times for drinks while I was in Wellington. The beer selection is excellent. The staff are friendly and very knowledgable and were happy to give the odd taster or end of keg beer.

Casual Drink

Stopped in for a drink on a Friday night. Very impressed by the range of beer and the bar staffs knowledge. They were more than happy to give us a taster or two. Great selection of craft beers and a good atmosphere, you can easily spend a few hours there. They even had some food platters come out at no cost.
