About

Welcome to the home of Craft Beer in Newmarket, Auckland!

What is a Freehouse you ask? In a nutshell, it is exactly that…a bar that is Free from Big Brewery influence. We pour what we want based on taste and customer feedback. We are not under any contracts with any brewery so we only stock the very best that NZ brewers have to offer.

Welcome to the home of Craft Beer in Newmarket, Auckland!

A cool and laid back local with 15 taps of rotating local brews, over 120 craft beer and cider bottles and cans, one of the largest Bourbon selections in Auckland, playing sweet tunes, with ideas and concepts throughout the bar that are just a little bit different. 

As long as you have a good attitude you are welcome, kids, big and small appreciate the chalkboard tables and we encourage you to bring your four legged friends down to enjoy our awesome patio looking out onto the green space of The Lumsden Green. We show almost every sporting event, have a popular weekly trivia night, monthly comedy nights, monthly drink and draw events and can offer personalised beer or bourbon tastings, there is truly something for everyone.

We have recently re-named our Tasting Room as a Digital Detox Space.In a world that is becoming increasingly harder to switch off from, we are providing this space as a sanctuary away from our online lives. Switch off and disconnect, drink a beer, read a book and take time to appreciate the peace!

So, kick back and try one of the largest craft beer selections Auckland has to offer.

Conveniently located on the corner of Khyber Pass Road and Broadway in Newmarket, there is ample parking all around us in the many towers as well as plenty of street parking.
