Whistling Sisters brewery’s new sibling restaurant and bar, the Fermentery, is serving up deliciously inventive and unexpected food and beer matches alongside live music and an ever evolving collection of craft beer.
The new eatery on the corner of Ghuznee and Taranaki streets, which opened this month, offers a selection of sharing plates with a focus on pickled and fermented flavours, designed to pair well with beers on tap from resident brewery Whistling Sisters as well as other Wellington craft beer breweries.
Owner Russel Scott says the Fermentery’s food philosophy is based on matching the hand-crafted cuisine with interesting and unexpected beers.
“Think sauerkraut cheese balls, duck liver pâté, homemade breads, charcuterie platters and a selection of meats hot off the grill like smoked buttermilk braised pork chops and dry aged wagyu rump.
“The Whistling Sisters beer is subtle, sophisticated and drinkable, and the Fermentery will have permanent taps featuring our core range – XPA and Golden Ale, as well as our seasonal range – NZ Red Pilsner, Ghuznee Pale Lager and Coconut Milk Stout. There’ll also be limited releases of beers that are more experimental and inventive like our Rooty Toot Toot at the moment,” he says.
