Ellerslie is proud to welcome a Mac’s Brewbar to the community. This month, Ellerslie will be home to the eighth Mac’s Brewbar in the country – Union Post Brewbar.
Union Post Brewbar has taken the finest elements from each of the Brewbars before it and added some quirky characteristics to celebrate its location and history in Ellerslie. The building was established in the early 1900’s as a post office and has since been home to various restaurants and bars. Now Mac’s are using the history of the building as inspiration for the décor. For example, behind the main bar will be a wall of old post boxes.
The driving forces behind this development is owner/operator Darren Tolley. He is no stranger to the hospitality industry, having worked in it for 13 years – the past 7 of which he has owned bars such as Elbow Room and Eden Cloakroom.
Union Post Brewbar will be a terrific venue that will be able to accommodate people in different spaces. The decor has a little something for everyone and incorporates different areas including a garden bar for relaxing in the summer, a private room and courtyard.
A Mac’s Brewbar is a place where beer lovers of every age and inclination can feel at home. It’s a relaxing place, but a creative one too, with an eclectic collection of sights, smells and tastes.
The friendly and slightly eccentric bar staff are very passionate about beer and know their brews inside out. They are able to match a beer with any of the dishes on their appealing menu.
As well as having your favourite Mac’s Brews on tap, The Union Post Brewbar will be home to limited edition seasonal releases such as Isaac’s Cider (Summer), Log Burner (Winter Ale) and Brewjolais (brewed from the first fresh hops of the season).
The new Union Post Brewbar at 124 Main Highway, Ellerslie, will open its doors to the public on Wednesday,10 November, with the official opening party being held on Tuesday, 16 November.
Make Union Post your local!
