Beer spots to quench your thirst in the warmer months.

With sum­mer nearly upon us, it must be time for en­joy­ing those long hot nights with beers, BBQ and ban­ter. Well, at least that’s the hope.

If you’re look­ing for the best spots in Auck­land to sam­ple some of the re­gions finest hops here are our picks.

THE BEER SPOT

With 40 ro­tat­ing flavours and a dif­fer­ent food truck ev­ery week this North Shore pub should be on your list.

If you don’t want to leave the com­fort of your own home, they also ship their beer.

HALLERTAU BREW­ERY

This wee gem is a half hour drive from the CBD and of­fers the per­fect mix of great food, tasty hand­crafted beer and good at­mos­phere.

A great place for a Sun­day af­ter­noon re­lax­ing in the sun.

BROTH­ERS BREW­ERY & JUKE JOINT

There’s noth­ing bet­ter than BBQ and beer and the guys at Broth­ers Brew­ery have nailed the per­fect blend of fine brews and au­then­tic BBQ. This gem is nes­tled in the leafy sub­urb of Mt Eden.

THE LUMS­DEN FREEHOUSE

If you’re look­ing for a more cen­tral lo­ca­tion the Lums­den Freehouse is worth a visit.

A freehouse is a bar free from big brew­ery in­flu­ence and they serve beer based on taste and cus­tomer feed­back.

LEIGH SAWMILL BREW­ERY

If you’re stuck for ideas of what to do on a sum­mer’s af­ter­noon, jump in the car and head north to the Leigh Sawmill brew­ery.

Book a brew­ery tour and en­joy sam­pling one of the huge se­lec­tion of beer made on site.
