History

Take a look back into our past and see why Pomeroy's really is something quite special.

Originally the official Wards Brewery, brewing traditions established in the mid-nineteenth century are continued into the twenty-first by presenting patrons with over 31 taps of prize-winning beers and wines of local and international renown. 

A site rich in history is maintained within the walls of Pomeroy’s. The horse bays where grain was delivered and stored still remain, the office‚ where once records were kept, is now a library lined with books and references to early Christchurch, and eclectic items of history cover the walls to provide interesting viewing while you enjoy one of the cleansing ales.  

Family owned and operated, Steve and Victoria Pomeroy succeed in creating a warm and inviting environment.

Even as you step in the door you can already tell that there is a story to be told, Recently declared a No.1 heritage site, inner city history is alive and well and living at Pomeroy’s.

Housed in the historic Wards Brewery and always warm and inviting with pint glass in hand, your host Steve Pomeroy invites you to come and enjoy the unique Pom's experience and take the time to relax, unwind, meet friends whilst sampling a range of the best beers you'll find at one location.
