Welcome to Volstead Toggle

Established in 2011, Volstead is Christchurch’s best Craft Beer Lounge.

It is a concept devised by a few Christchurch locals to create an environment for social interaction that contradicts the traditional bar scene. Focusing on a relaxed atmosphere and comfortable surroundings, the Volstead Trading Co. is bringing back the glory days of the 1920′s Speakeasy, a bar for those in the know, away from the common scene.

Offering Craft Beers from around the world, Volstead promises to deliver one of the widest selections available and a beer to tempt any palate. These include stunning local brews, alongside award winning national beers and famous international beers. We also offer hand pull beer from fantastic local and national breweries.

Check out the Gig Guide for upcoming live music, beer tastings and other beer related activities.

We are open 7 days a week – from Midday to 11pm, with our new exciting, Mexican inspired menu.

Also be sure to check our Specials Page to see what international beers we are promoting this week as they change regularly – if you have any requests or suggestions for a special brew, let us know through our Contact Page and we’ll do what we can to get it here and in your glass.

The brewery tags will take you to the tasting notes from some of our favourite breweries.
