Kiwi Bottleshops

Discussion in 'Australia & New Zealand' started by hopswiller, Apr 26, 2012.

  1. Can anyone recommend a good bottleshop in Auckland to pick up some kiwi craft beer?
    I know a few people going over soon and want to get my hands on some of the beers not available in Oz.

    I'd order through Regional Wines in Wellington www.regionalwines.co.nz or The Beer Store in Hamilton www.beerstore.co.nz and have it sent to the hotel in Auckland a couple of days before your arrival.

    If your friends are into wine apparently there are some good wineries in Auckland itself.

    Have to agree with MrKennedy. Regional Wines is great and The Beer Store provided an effective shipping service when I was in NZ.

    You can order off of Hashigo Zake and have delivered to Auckland.
    beerstore.co.nz is excellent. They will hold orders for a specific shipping date and generally 1 day shipping from Hamilton to Auckland. $9 dollar NZD shipping on the North Island is solid.
     
  5. Cheers for the suggestions, now here's hoping I can get my hands on some Liberty C!tra
