Great beer, live music, food and 360 degrees views of Auckland will be on the menu at Bottle Stop's first rooftop session this March. The new tasting room and bottle store has gained access to the space above the shop on Grey Lynn's Vinegar Lane, which owner Rich Young is calling "one of the best rooftop terraces in Auckland."
Tickets will included all food and drink on the day to avoid faffing around with money or cards. Beers flowing will include Garage Project, Sawmill, Urbanaut and Deep Creek with representatives from each brewery offering tastings of limited releases. Wine will come via Masters of Ceremonies including the infamous frosé machine. Food for the day will be supplied by Sammy and his team from Satya Chai Lounge. Think delicious Indian street food like Manchurian dumplings, kurryaage chicken and fried curryflower.
Opening last November, Bottle Stop's specialty is craft beer, with more than 300 frothy options lining the shelves. Aiming to please both punters and practiced pint guzzlers, it covers everything from easy drinking lagers to strong barrel aged sours.
