  • Fresh Craft Beer Pouring Now!

    Fresh Craft Beer now pouring at Moore Wilson's Tory Street and Porirua Wine, Beer & Spirits Stores.

    Currently on tap

    Tory Street

    Abandoned Brewing Pilsner 5.0% {Lower Hutt} A crisp flavour with late hop aromas that include citrus and a subtle biscuit flavour. The pairing of Motueka and Taiheke hops give this Pilsner a classic New Zealand taste, combining the use of traditional Pilsner malt to have a traditional twist. Undoubtedly this is one of the best beers to pair with cheese, seafood or spicy food.

    Kereru Pohutukawa Golden Ale 5.0% {Wellington} Pohutukawa Golden Ale is a mildly-hopped golden ale with dry mineral notes from the pohutukawa honey. It has lingering flavours of gently toasted malt and NZ Goldings and NZ Cascade (Taiheke) hops. The Pohutukawa tree is the “NZ Christmas tree” with its bright crimson flowers dusting the hills from mid-December. This is the perfect ale for the barbecue and enjoyment during summer.

    Tinker Tailor XPA 4.8%  {Plimmerton} Extra delicious. A more sessionable version of our popular APA. Less bitter, less hops, less alcohol but still just as tasty. Extra pale in colour, you’ll love its fresh-crushed lime character.
    Combined with the white-wine fruitiness of honey dew melon and strawberry this is a perfect beer to drink on a slow, relaxing day with your mates.

    Heyday Chain Breaker Brut XPA 5.5% {Wellington} This beer was inspired by brewers pushing boundaries. Using an amylase enzyme to break the remaining polysaccharides or complex sugar chains. This leaves the beer bone dry like a Brut Champagne. The malt is super lean and is dry hopped with Huell Melon and Denali. It has a low bitterness to balance the extreme dryness and lovely tropical rock melon and pineapple aromas.

    Tuatara Suspense Hazy IPA 7.1% {Kapiti Coast} Described as the ‘IPA for people who hate IPAs’, the US East Coast IPA is craved for its hazy, juicy, scarcely bitter profile. Barely a tween, we’ve shaken up the style going full noise with Riwaka’s best. Hazier than a Whakapapa whiteout from a lashing of protein rich cereals, our homegrown cones have exceeded expectations of bold tropical fruit flavours. Combine this with a silky mouth feel and subtle bitterness for a uniquely Kiwi version of this US classic.

    Porirua

    Kereru Pohutukawa Golden Ale 5.0% {Wellington} Pohutukawa Golden Ale is a mildly-hopped golden ale with dry mineral notes from the pohutukawa honey. It has lingering flavours of gently toasted malt and NZ Goldings and NZ Cascade (Taiheke) hops. The Pohutukawa tree is the “NZ Christmas tree” with its bright crimson flowers dusting the hills from mid-December. This is the perfect ale for the barbecue and enjoyment during summer.

    Cassels and Sons One Pale Ale 6.0% {Christchurch} This easy drinking NZ Pilsner starts with a Named One Pale Ale because of the single hop. The palate is, at first soft and creamy, yet tart and spritzy, with sweet malt vying to balance a riot of tropical fruity flavours and tongue-coating hop resins. Then the mouth becomes dry as an uncompromising bitterness kicks in and lingers.

    Te Aro Razzle Dazzle Pilsner 5.1% {Wellington} Classic Pilsner yeast profile. Dank kiwi hop flavour from Riwaka and a touch of tropical from Nelson Sauvin. Smooth honey malt profile with clean bitterness.

    Selection changing regularly. Subject to availability.
