The Galbraith’s Alehouse is a bar located at 2 Mount Eden Rd, Eden Terrace, Auckland, New Zealand. Keith Galbraith who had a strong desire to introduce quality ales to the people of New Zealand originally opened the bar way back in 1995.

It is a traditional British themed bar that serves unique European inspired ales that have been handcrafted using authentic natural ingredients. The interior of the building is really nice with large communal tables, an awesome back patio covered in hops, and the working brewery is located right inside the building when you walk in.
