At Brew on Quay you will find a lovely and warm atmosphere, good music, good food, excellent service, international staff and over 102 different beers on tap and from the fridge. Highly recommend the bar upstairs!

They've done a really good job with the building, even though it certainly could be cleaner. The selection of beers was pretty poor however There were some bottles, but for a place that prides itself on a good beer selection, it was sadly lacking. We'd walked up this way for the specific purpose of settling in at Brew on Quay... More

'Brew On Quai' is located near the hotel where we spend the first few days in New Zealand. We were happy to find it in the evening after flying in, when we did not feel like walking long, we were hungry and thirsty. The place looks like an European brewery or British pub - an environment we liked. We ordered... More

I would like to fairly notice you guys that this was "Worst bar ever Ive been in my whole life" The western look tallest bartender with black hair covered by hair on whole cheek threw raspberry cocktail I've ordered over the counter by mistake, which left the great amount of RASPBERRY SPOTS on my whole pink dress and my bf's...

Hi Mihotakamoto I think you have the wrong bar. We don't do Raspberry cocktails, We don't have anyone working here that matches the description and none of my managers or staff know any thing about this. We work very hard to give our customers the best experience we can. If this had of happened at Brew On Quay I'm sure... More

Although the building is interesting and the location is good. The quality of the food is average and the beer is expensive. Won't be in a hurry to return but it was ok. Nice ambience to the building as it was obviously was converted from something else. Toilets were dirty as well which is always a turnoff.

Popped into the Brew on Quay this lunchtime with my wife, Ann, for a meal and a beer. I had bangers and mash and Ann had chicken breast stuffed with almond and wrapped in bacon served with gnocchi in a cheese sauce. Both were good, especially the chicken. We also both had drinks of real ale and these were very... More

Quick and friendly service, we enjoyed the food and beer. Option to sit outside is nice. Seems like a place were many people come to have a drink watch a game and eat.

We liked the ambience, nice location in an old building on Quay Street, so we decided to have dinner there. Staff were friendly, but confused as to where the patrons were sitting and what they had ordered. We decided to have burgers, which were quite pricy, so we were expecting top quality. We were disappointed to find inedible tough bits... More

As a cask/craft ale drinker, I'd visited this place 2 years ago on my last visit, but this time 4 of us decided to eat here too. Fortunately, in the free A-Z of Auckland booklet, there was a 2-4-1 voucher for all main meals up to a value of $25. My friend who lives in New Zealand had a similar... More

Focusing on great atmosphere, ambiance, fine food and the best brews from around New Zealand and the world. With the decor of Brew on Quay changing from room to room, Brew attracts every type of beer consumer, not just the typical kiwi bloke, but also the business man, the lunching lady, the party princess and the group of friends out for a fun night.

Brews point of difference also comes in the form of its roof top bar. The rooftop bar offers an ambiance all of its own. To sit on the roof and have a brew with friends under the night stars can either be romantic or just plain fun.

We promise you something different, fun, and full of Brew.
