The Free House, Nelson.
The Free House, Nelson. Lost at E Minor

An exploration of the art of beer

THE Free House is a pub set in a retro-fitted church in Nelson, New Zealand, an exploration of the art of beer that is unshackled from big brewery mass produced fizz that we so often have to endure.

Disciples have enjoyed more than 250 different craft beers since the crusade to set beers free was embarked upon in 2009 by Eelco Boswijk and Mic Dover.

They wanted a bar with craft beer, but having found few options in Nelson, decided to set up their own.

The food policy is a novelty: BYO or order in from the range of takeaway restaurants nearby which deliver to your table.

Nelson’s warmest, happiest place for a beer with heart.
