On my couple of trips to New Zealand I drank a few times in a brewpub uptowards Eden Park in Auckland which was pretty good. It had a British pub vibe but I can't remember the name. 

I liked Macs Brewery in Wellington too. Really nice building on the harbour. Wellington also has the plus point of a Welsh pub in a converted public convenience. 

However the Kiwi brand beers were pretty awful. Drank Tui at a Warriors game and it was just as bad as I had been warned. 

It is eight years since I have been there so I guess they could have a craft beer scene now. 

It is something like 15 years since I visited Australia and I know they have such a scene now but they didn't back then. I remember visiting a brewpub in The Rocks in Sydney but didn't think enough of it to go a second time. I did like the dark version of Tooheys (old?) so I generally went for that. Something called Cascade was passable too.

I have drunk Coopers of Adelaide on occasion here in the UK and that is certainly interesting. A unique style.

Anyway neither match up to Belgium or Germany.

i went to new zealand about 6 years ago & there are plenty of craft breweries there. also they've got a good beer society, SOBA (society of beer advocates), similar to CAMRA here. went to a pub near the harbour in Auckland & was at 105 Quay street (or something similar) & sold 105 beers!
