Four avenues brewing co.

Four Avenues is young and working towards perfecting our house beers with a strong focus on quality Session ales. See the board and talk to our friendly staff for more details. Oh, and check out the Avenues hour!

Harrington’s pig & whistle 4%

A New Zealand classic dark beer, light in mouth feel, chocolate in flavour. Awarded the “Best In Class” Trophy for British Ale Styles at the Brewers Guild of NZ Awards.

Harrington’s saddler lager 4%

A whole malt lager with no additives. It’s a light bodied brew with a toffee flavour that is evenly balanced with a hopped edge. Very crisp and very clean.

Harrington’s kiwi draught 4%

Classic Kiwi. Lightly-bodied and slightly sweet, nutty biscuit taste.

Mussel inn captain cooker  5%

The Manuka for this brew was selectively hand picked on the day of brewing from a special location in Golden Bay. The natural variation from season to season is part of the character of this beer.

Three boys OYSTER STOUT 6.2% (handpump)

Christchurch’s Three Boys should need no introduction, and Oyster Stout is their definitive winter warmer. Rich and velvety, this is one of the best stouts known to the taps of New Zealand, and we’ll offer as much as we can get our hands on on handpull... 

Three boys ipa 5.2%

It is the generous addition of hops that allows Three Boys IPA to survive the long haul, but when drunk fresh you can really appreciate the aroma of the special selection of NZ hops.

Tuatara Hefe 5%

Wheat beers have been around for centuries, but you can still startle unsuspecting New Zealanders with a good one. A portion of wheat in the mash results in a sweeter, cloudier base. In combination with a Weinstephan yeast, this produces distinctive flavours of ripe banana, vanilla and clove.

Epic pale ale 5.4%

Impressive aroma of grapefruit and rose petals, flavour of creamy malt sweetness, and a finish of lingering bitterness.

Emerson’s pilsner 4.9%

This pilsner oozes citrus and passionfruit aromas and flavors. The palate shows a hint of early malt sweetness.

Emerson’s bookbinder 3.7%

A wonderfully drinkable interpretation of a classic English ale. Bookbinder Bitter is a blend of four malts combined with two classic Nelson grown European hops (Fuggles and Riwaka). The beer pours an attractive reddish brown, with a cream coloured head. Bookbinder Bitter has a sweet, perfumey, malt and hop aroma with a soft, malty, fruit and vinous palate that is both full flavoured and refreshing with a long, gently drying finish.

Emerson’s 1812 IPA 4.9%

The defining essence of Emerson’s 1812 IPA is the sheer ‘Englishness’! The beer has a delightful marmalade character with toffee maltiness, balanced by complex, orangey and earth hop notes in both the aroma and palate. Tangy hops dominate the beer’s lingering, dry finish.

Tuatara London Porter 5%

Making a good dark Porter isn’t just about malt. Sure you’ve got your crystal, chocolate and roast malts to provide lots of body and a healthy shade of who-turned-the-lights-out, but balance demands something more than that; specifically, generous additions of Chinook hops. Be sure to try it how the Pom’s like it; flat and a few degrees warmer. You may be pleasantly surprised!

Invercargill pitch black stout 4.5%

It shouts stout… deep colour and rich hints of chocolate and coffee, yet dry enough to want another pint.

Panhead Supercharger 5.7%

American-style muscle gets backed up here with real kiwi horsepower. A long, aromatic list of hops like Centennial, Citra and Simcoe should lead you to expect massive bitterness and sensory hop presence, and you wouldn’t be too far off in that expectation at all. One for the hop heads.

CIDER TAPS

Expect to see a rotating cast of the best cider on offer at any given time... Whether it be Eve’s NV cider from KJD Brewing, Nally’s from Invercargill or Zeffer from Matakana.
