bar with a
By CARLA PENMAN
Community pub with
an eye on comfort
Customers at a new boutique beer bar in
Thorndon are invited to bring along their own fish
and chips or even a board game -- but they
shouldn t expect to watch the rugby.
The Sprig and Fern, which opened last week in
Tinakori Rd, is part of a Nelson-based chain that
aims to provide a neighbourly Kiwi atmosphere
with locally brewed craft beer.
Head brewer and co-owner Tracy Banner said
the expansion of the chain to Wellington was the
chance to take the brewery brand up a level.
The name of the beer bar seeks to celebrate Kiwi
culture. The word sprig comes from the name
given to the frond inside the fern when it opens.
Patrons are encouraged to bring a curry from up
the road, bring their own flagons or riggers, have
a pint and take a rigger home.
The black and white stylish setting is intended
to create an egalitarian vibe. Ms Banner said
televisions and pool tables had been banned, so
people could appreciate good conversation or per-
haps play a board game.
There are 12 taps of different craft beers on
Co-owner and project and sales manager David
Barrett said Tinakori Rd was chosen because he
liked the colonial history and heritage of the 19th
I walked in and it just felt right.
It is the bar for everyone.
If a woman can come in by herself and order a
beer or a cup of coffee and feel comfortable...
then we have achieved what we wanted.
The Sprig and Fern brewery in Nelson won 10
medals at the BrewNZ International Beer Awards

Reader Mary Wood would like to know about
Palm Ave, which runs between Endeavour
and Wha streets.
Palm Ave was formed on land divided in 1923 by
James Stellin, one of Wellington s early real estate
It is thought Stellin gave the road this name
because it was near the beach.
Palm -- as in palm trees -- had a seaside ring to
it.After returning from World War I Stellin set up
Stellin & Co, which advertised itself in the Evening
Post as subdivision experts, real estate agents,
valuers and sharebrokers .
Stellin & Co was responsible for subdividing and
selling land throughout the city, including large
parts of Lyall Bay, Rongotai, Northland, Kelburn
and Lower Hutt.
Stellin St, Lower Hutt, is named after him.
