Best Pub Metro Autumn 2021!
UPDATED OPENING HOURS
With NZ borders shut, the hospitality industry is suffering from a dire shortage of quality staff.
Despite our best efforts we have been unable to find the right people to join our Galbraith’s team, and allow our existing staff time off.
So sadly, until further notice, we will be closed on Mondays beginning 16th August 2021.
We are open Tuesday-Sunday 12pm-Late. To avoid disappointment we encourage you to book. As always we are committed to keeping you safe with plenty of sanitizer on hand, and regular surface cleaning, but if you feel unwell please stay home.
Keith, Andrea and the Galbraith’s Team
Brewing and serving craft beer before it was cool
At the Alehouse we have been serving world-beating beers from our on-site brewery since 1995. Once again named one of Metro’s Top 10 Auckland Bars in 2020 and boasting one of the most extensive beer lists in the country, we are committed to being the best. Located in the beautiful lofty Grafton library building at the top of Mt Eden Road the feeling when you walk through the doors is welcoming and relaxed.
Our hand-made food showcases the heritage of our experienced team of chefs whilst staying true to our pub roots. Produce is sourced locally, delivered fresh every day and collected from the on-site gardens.
Born and raised in Dublin, David joined the Alehouse family in 2011, training directly with Keith from the ground up. Always happy to have a yarn about what’s brewing, he is passionate about cask-conditioned ales and his family. In 2019 he became proud father to the newest additions to the Alehouse family, young twins Ted and Benji.
Born in Hamilton across the river from the Waikato Brewery, Keith began his career working with wine. He quickly found that his skills and knowledge translated across to brewing. Seeing few true Real Ales being produced, he opened the Alehouse in 1995 with the desire to bring real, old-world beer styles, brewed with traditional techniques to New Zealand. Since opening the Alehouse, his beers have been recognised and acclaimed locally and at an international level, including in 2017 with two gold medals and a the trophy for world champion in the strong dark beer class at the prestigious International Brewing Awards in Burton-on-Trent, considered the Oscars of the brewing world.
Our specialty cask-conditioned, hand-pulled Real Ale and European inspired lagers are complimented by a range of seasonal beers from local and international producers. Available to enjoy here, or by the flagon to take home.
