Spotlight on a local: Brew Co.

During 2020, we featured a local bar, pub or club every week to help boost the Kiwi hospitality industry and encourage customers to get out and explore!

Here get insight into Mount Maunganui beer garden, Brew Co.

How has business been going during this tough year?
We have definitely had our challenges but when levels have allowed we have seen massive support from our local community which means trade has been solid and fun has been had by all! We have also seen strong numbers of Kiwis during weekends etc.. 

What have you been doing to encourage customers to come back to your local?
We have spent a long number of years being part of the community, so have seen strong support. We have worked with musicians to show them support which has encouraged the local community in as well.  Brew has a very strong hospo following, which we love as well.

How would you describe the atmosphere of Brew Co?
Fun, casual and open.

What is your signature drink?
We have always been a strong beer-focussed venue and a cold Heineken is the drink of choice. We are also very proud proponents of Kate Moss’ espresso martini.

Why do you think your local stands out from the crowd?
We are a venue that welcomes everyone and for all occasions, great for lunch, afternoon beers in the sun, and we change to a live music venue after dark and a full party venue on the weekends

What are your 3 top tips for being a great bartender?
Listen, start with yes and take pride in everything that you do.
