Brothers Beer, Orakei

Imagine your favourite place in the whole world. I don’t know if it’s a beach, a memory, a restaurant, wherever. Picture it. Now, take that place, and imagine someone came along and introduced that place to the aesthetic appeal of banana yellow, open plan architcture, and open lighting. Alright so maybe that might not put the right picture in your mind unless your favourite place in the world was a cool-ass bar filled with craft beer. There is some pretty cool stuff happening all over the show, but I think the coolest of the cool things to happen in recent weeks is the creation of a beautiful wholesome space in Orakei. King of that space, is Brothers Beer. Consistently doing the cool things the gents at Brothers Beer aren't shy to stepping up to create something special, and their new haunt in Orakei is no exception.

 

 

Set up in an old gin distillery, Brothers have left the building to do the talking. Yellow beams bounce light through the elevated windows, in the highest ceiling you've ever seen. Almost like a concrete cube filled with natural light and steel cylinders, the new Brothers space has an air hangar-meets-brewery vibe. The striking yellow works wonder against the Orakei basin backdrop as evening sun drops through the bannisters.

As you drive down into the Orakei village you may not be aware of where this place is (it’s around to the left) and so this should be, it manufactures the feeling of secrecy, although every Remuera-ite and their dog (quite literally the dogs) knows about this place. Wednesday afternoons you can find the space filled with Ralph Lauren polo shirts and Cavoodles. But more imprtantly it is filled with beer. The space is used to brew some of Brothers more unique beers, and they extend their stock by calling on their good mates at Piha Beer and Sawmill. Ultimately crafty and forever independent, Brothers are able to create a space that revels in its own simplicity.

 

 

Along with their 18 beer taps, decent apply of bottled tipple and the occasional liquid grape, they do burgers, just classic good burgers. Think beef and lamb served with nothing more than the key ingredients, sizeable patties and limited greenery. Serve with a side of shoestring fries with aioli. There isn't anything too complicated going on here, just some lads wanting to serve beer and burgers, and doing a damn good job of it.

Don't get confused by its simplicity, not all good things require a great deal of intricacy. We recommend getting down there for a midweek tipple, as they close Monday and Tuesday, so tackle hump day with a crafty drop of something that was clearly made with love. Make sure you get a table outside to get the full experience, but if its raining, the bar leaners inside will surely do the trick. Oh, and there is a giant chandelier indoors, this place is the most Orakei thing you will ever see, and we kind of love it, an homage to the suburb, and a space that allows the basin (and the beers) do the talking.

    The reputation of Germany’s fist industry, the automotive industry, is still being affected by the emissions scandal. In 2015, Volkswagen admitted to manipulating millions of diesel engines and cheating on emissions testing.

    However, you should not think that knowing these terms can easily become a developer. This is not enough. You have to check out more comprehensive blockchain vocabularies on your own. You will find more terms you need to know, such as consensus, DAO, ASIC, EVM, etc.
