For the love of finely crafted things…

In 2016 over a few beers, Stewart Gebbie and David Stanway discussed their passion for high quality, finely crafted food and drink.

Stewart, co-founder of Wellington’s Te Aro Brewing Co. talked about his dream of a bar that showcased the very best hand crafted beer, wine and spirits from NZ and around the world. He offered David the job of managing the place and David, having just learned his own bar’s building was about to be torn down, gratefully accepted.

The philosophy was simple…

Source the finest products from craftspeople who share the same passion for quality and flavour, and serve them in a warm, relaxed and friendly environment.

For Stewart, The Barrel Room is not just a destination but a story of discoveries and experiences as they continue to bring their customers variety, choice and flavour from around New Zealand and the world.

The goal is to continually evolve, searching out the new while challenging the old in their quest for finely crafted things.
