Pub of the Year

According to the NZ Herald, the Dux de Lux in Christchurch has just walked off with the pub of the year award.

Well done! Great to see a winner who supports craft beer.

That said, if I had been judging, I’d have given the prize to the Twisted Hop, as real ale trumps keg beer every time. That and they support SOBA.


The above looks to be completely wrong.

I’m not sure what is going on at the Herald, but the original article seems to have vanished, and has been replaced by one declaring that Galbraiths is the Pub of the Year. That’s all well and good, but I’m not sure where the original article is!

Apologies patient readers.

Boo Sucks to the NZ Herald.


Stu points out this isn’t the first time that the Herald has let beer lovers down with useless reporting.

Some detail would be nice, NZ Herald people. I love Galbraiths to bits, but who chose it as the pub of the year? Who sponsors this contest? Does it run every year? Who judges it?

  1. Nice big photo of Keith with a pint in his hand on the stairs outside Galbraiths in section 1 of the Herald this morning. Congratulations, great to see it going to a real pub with real beer.
