My latest column from The Wellingtonian reviews The Hop Garden and The Bruhaus - two new bars in the Capital. The column is titled "Wellington's beer scene keeps improving":
The service is attentive and efficient, with former Malthouse stalwart Scott Boswell a star behind the bar. There is an ever-changing selection of 11 tap beers, plenty of interesting bottles and a menu that just keeps improving. Tuatara, Renaissance, Three Boys and Emerson's beers are usually available. The food selection ranges from pub staples to gourmet meals. Try the sardines for brunch, the salt and pepper squid as a snack or the braised goat tagine for dinner.
