NEW YEAR – NEW MENU
2024 is underway and our new Kitchen Team have found their groove.
Keith and the team in the kitchen have been working hard over the summer to finesse the menu. There is something for everyone, including all the classics Galbraith’s is known for. Our new luncheon and light meals section is proving to be a hit.
The beverage accompaniments are as strong as ever. We have beer to suit every taste. If it’s not one of our own award-winning brews made on-site, then it could be something from our craft beer friends featured on one of our five guest beer taps. On the flip side there is no doubt that our well-priced cocktail list has been the star performer of the summer.
The beer garden has proved a popular spot for functions, from work get togethers to engagement parties under the lights. If you would like to celebrate your next occasion somewhere truly unique then get in touch with us at email@example.com and we can work with you to create the perfect party mix.
Speaking of groove, while daylight savings lasts our Sunday summer acoustic music sessions are still on between 2-5pm in the garden. Organised by ex-staffer Edwin Judd they are great way to wile away an afternoon.
Finally, something to put in your diary. Sunday Roasts will be back from 31 March 2024 in time for Easter.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
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.
