16 Tun offers customers the carefully crafted beers of independent brewers from all over NZ.
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.
Behind the bar, you’ll find more than 50 of New Zealand’s best beers in the fridge, and another 10 on tap. Making craft beer approachable is one of 16 Tun’s guiding principles. The beer list gives smart, easy to understand descriptions so you will know what your are ordering.
The food menu is divided into “half tun” bar snacks and small plates, like fish sliders with preserved lemon and homemade mayo, horopito-spiced chicken bites, and Ruakaka paua fritters with lemon aioli. “Full tun” mains – classic Kiwi pub meals like steak and burgers, plus vegetarian options – are listed in the menu alongside recommended beer matches.
