This popular craft beer brewery has opened a brand new family-friendly outpost in Birkenhead

North Shore locals rejoice — celebrated brewery Brothers Beer has opened a new outpost in Birkenhead, and it’s an excellent place to park yourself for a pint and a selection of tasty eats. This is the sixth Brothers Beer & Juke Joint BBQ location in Auckland, following on from successful venues in the central city, plus Mount Eden, Ōrākei and Onehunga.

Located at 6 Rugby Road in a lovely neighbourhood area that overlooks the harbour, the main bar has taken up residence in a building with over 100 years of history (it was previously the Hellaby’s butchers that operated from 1912) and the renovated interior incorporates exposed timber beams and brickwork, while a new outdoor, all-weather glass conservatory has been added.

As for the beverage and culinary offering, there are 15 taps of Brothers Beer craft beer from the Mount Eden brewery, as well as a curated selection of wines, ciders, kombucha and cocktails. Juke Joint BBQ’s specialty is Southern Style cuisine, with a sharing menu featuring slow-cooked meats and vegetables, such as 14-hour smoked beef brisket, tender spiced lamb shoulder, and smoked and fried chicken.

With its large, sun-catching covered courtyard and comfortable interior, Brothers Beer & Juke Joint BBQ Birkenhead is family and dog-friendly, and is sure to be a popular addition to the area.
