Discussing :: Q&A Get Frank – Hallertau Brewery

'THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT BEER' Boutique brewer and founder/owner of Hallertau Brew Bar & Restaurant in Riverhead, Auckland, Steve Plowman really knows his hops.

I'm not a big beer drinker, but the thought of trying some local ale that's brewed the way this stuff is would get me very interested.

I love Hallertau. Great place, great beer, great food, went there on my stag do, got smashed and had a great hang over...and only just got to the church 3 minutes before my bride. She still thinks I got there an hour earlier. I love Hallertau. Cant wait to go back :)

Hallertau - great food & great beer - no better way to spend an afternoon than in this great place and its only a "hop" skip n a jump to some of the best vineyards - Riverhead Rocks!
