Brewing 3“I would give all my fame for a pot of ale” (William Shakespeare)
The Shakespeare is New Zealand’s First Brew Pub

That’s what William Shakespeare said and we agree. The Shakespeare Brewery is New Zealand’s first Brew Pub located in a historic hotel building in Auckland’s CBD. The Brewery is capable of producing hundreds of thousands liters of craft beer per year using only the finest Malt, yeast and hops in all in our brews.  
All our beer is LIVE which means, we don’t flash pasteurize or filter our beer and this is for a Damn good reason, we want you to enjoy beer as it should be with all the luscious flavors of malts and hops without being wiped out by any of these unnatural processes.

“None of our beers are ever quite the same”
All our beers are unique; we create recipes from influences all over the world and recreate them adding a twist of pure Shakespeare to get just the right balance and flavors.
