For worthy eating and drinking experiences around Wellington, NZ (and the greater region) – you can also catch Heather over at KNOW Wellington's Word on the Street Blog or hosting Zest Food Tours around the city…

Goldings craft beer

Goldings is everything reported previously by Word on the Street.

The full name Goldings Free Dive is because they’re not affiliated to anyone in terms of product, and immediately put me in mind of New York and the local ‘dive’ bars over there my friend so loves.

Hidden away down Leeds Street (between Dixon and Ghuznee through the Hannahs Apartment complex), Goldings is another successful launch into the Wellington craft beer scene.

There are lots of quirky decorations to keep one amused while watching the names being updated on the beer board as the taps change over (rubber duckies, coloured buckets for lights, an old cellphone taped up the wall by an exit sign…..), food is by Pizza Pomodoro (how can you go wrong with that?),and the service friendly and welcoming.

A variety of beers and wines were imbibed over a very pleasant catchup with both old and new friends. The Tuatara beers were probably reasonably well known, but the Liberty Citra was something different and interesting (considered a bit fruity for one bloke in the group, who shall remain nameless but has been seen in possession of a girly-looking cocktail a time or two in the past…), and we didn’t quite get to the Liberty Sauvignon Bomb.  Maybe next time.

Go check it out.
