Good George Brewing
Formerly Hamilton's Church of St. George, the high-ceilinged space at Good George Brewery and Dining Hall now attracts happy drinkers reading from the gospels of fine craft beer and excellent wood-fired pizza. On weekend afternoons local musicians with a singer/songwriter vibe perform in Good George's garden bar—delivering tunes you'll probably know all the words to. The brewery's ciders and fruit beers are regarded as among New Zealand
's best. For a similar feel, and the opportunity to drink other beers from around the country, head to Little George on Hood Street, the center of rowdy nightlife in the city. A five-strong tasting flight is the best option for curious drinkers keen to experience New Zealand's fantastic craft-beer scene.
