Great location in downtown Wellington, Malthouse had an inviting bartender and a flexible tasting setup where we could build our own tasting flights. Highly recommended to come in, drink up, and mellow out to some Portishead.

One of the more outstanding selections of beer on tap and bottled, we were drawn right in. Most of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable to recommend similar beers to our individual tastes. Chicken wings with spicy sauce are a definite recommendation.
