The Brewery Bar & Restaurant

Outside in the evening at Cassels Brewery Bar in Christchurch

Wood-fire lies at the heart of Cassels Brewery Bar and Restaurant at the Tannery.

Prize-winning craft beers brewed in one of only two operational wood-fired breweries in the world and pizzas baked to perfection in our wood-fired ovens bring people in from all over town to The Brewery Restaurant & Bar in Christchurch.

Our Beverages

Our beer is brewed on site by a passionate team of brewers with international experience.   While most of the brewing takes place in our Production Brewery at the far end of The Tannery Complex, we still use our wood-fired copper-domed kettle for some of our dark beers.  This original brewery sits in pride of place behind the bar at The Brewery.

To complement our own brews, we also have an ever-changing selection of beers and ciders from other Craft Breweries around New Zealand, and a full wine list.




A beautifully well-balanced beer and our most popular real ale. Amber in appearance with a generous white head. The aroma is fruity, malty and sweet. Flavours are grape, lemon and stone fruit with a smooth biscuity malt base. The initial fruity, hoppy flavours are replaced by a malty, bitter finish. A very English beer and not at all short on flavour.
