It was a hot Taranaki day when we stopped in at Brewery Mike’s for lunch.
I can’t remember now if the old hall used to be a schoolhouse or if it was an RSA (Returned Serviceman’s Association) Hall but either way it’s been well decorated for it’s present use, there are relaxing seating areas inside as well as out.
There is a small display of local art (Kiwi Daughter spent some pocket money buying one of the paintings in the photo) and some interesting old photos of local brewing, but since our food was arriving at the table outside I forget to check if these were photos taken of this brewing family or not.
The place is cool in the summer heat and by the looks of the log burner in the corner surrounded by sofas, it’s probably pretty comfortable in the winter too.
I like that not only is the beer organic but they stock a few organic snacks too, for example organic chocolate. Let’s take a look around.
