Uptown Beer Quarter

The personality and character of Uptown, encapsulating Mt Eden, Grafton, Newton, and Eden Terrace, has always been a little different from the other city-fringe suburbs.

Since the early days, the area has always been a working-class hub for the busy city, as well as a practical 'central' living alternative. Many locals already know Uptown is the home to some of the best and most unusual specialty shops and businesses to be found in the city – great food, live music, nightlife, creative industries, business innovators and manufacturers.

The latest additions to Uptown are a cluster of specialty brewing businesses and stores we like to call, the "Uptown Beer Quarter".

It consists of Hopscotch Beer Company, Uptown Freehouse, Horse and Trap, Brother's Brewery, Homebrew West and Galbraith's Alehouse. Where else in the Auckland city-fringe area can you find four top quality brewing institutions within a 500 metre radius.
