Sitting next to the dock sipping a great pale ale, eating a tasty burrito, and listening to fun music defines the perfect brewpub experience and Golden Bear does it perfect. Golden Bear serves mexican food (owner is from LA originally) and does it well. Other patrons were getting fish and chips that looked great from a neighboring restaurant as well. All of their beers were spot on. We had a great time the two times we were there and definitely recommend them. Only heads up is that it fills up so get there early and careful with your consumption as the NZ police are very serious about drink driving with lots of random checkpoints where everyone does a breathalyzer. Small tasters and then take a 'rigger' (one or two liter jug of beer) home to enjoy!
