About This Bar
FREE HOUSE. Free from what you might ask? Well, in our case, having to stock the products of just one brewery. Unlike most beer bars, which are ‘Tied Houses’, we can offer our customers the carefully crafted beers of independent brewers from all over the country.
We’re passionate about providing the best beer New Zealand has to offer. Even our name is a nod to the brewer’s noble art. A Tun is an insulated brewing vessel used in the mashing and lautering stages of beer making.
For that reason 16 Tun prides itself on being able to stock over 120 different craft beers available through the beautifully designed taps or in our extensive selection of only the best New Zealand bottled craft beer.

LADIES MASTERCLASS & BEER APPRECIATIONS
Ladies. Do you sometimes feel left out of the conversation when it turns to craft beer? Well now’s your chance to be a star of the scuttlebutt.
16 TUN is running a ladies-only masterclass for women keen to be part of the growing conversation surrounding non-mainstream beers.
The evening tasting event is being hosted by sisters Alex and Georgia Wieland who both work for us at 16 TUN.
The two-hour class is the brainchild of the sisters who wanted to provide an informal beer education environment especially for women
The class starts with some basic information about what beer is and how it’s made and goes on to explore the differences between varieties such as pale ales and dark beer, lager, pilsner, India pale ales, porters, stouts and sours.
The flavour profiles of beer are also examined, the beer making process discussed and guests are talked through the various steps from malt through to hops, yeast and fermentation.
The masterclass costs $50 including beer and food. The food is matched with the beers, with the drinks menu yet to be finalised as the beers change weekly. The 16 TUN kitchen is renowned for such delights as smoky pork sliders, horopito chicken morsels, crispy calamari and chocolate matched to a stout.
Beer Appreciation Sessions
At 16 Tun we have a passion for beer and love any opportunities to help improve knowledge. In our Beer Appreciation Session we will personally guide you through the ins and outs of matching food with beer.
We will take you through the method of making beer while exploring a variety of beer styles complemented by flavour profiles in our small plates. Hosted by one of our beer masters ready to impart their knowledge and open the world of beer to you and your friends.
