Our food philosophy is all about allowing you to invent interesting matches with the excellent craft beer we pour. You can expect lots of dishes, some small and some classic portions and surprises - lots of rich pickled and fermented flavours, excellent charcuterie, our very own hand made breads and coffee alongside many other local seasonal delicacies.


Our People

Meet Lily Nguyen Huu: Fermentery Manager

Lily has hospitality in her blood: as a child she helped out in her Vietnamese Grandfather's restaurant.  Lily came to New Zealand from France in 2010 and joined the Scott clan, working as Assistant Manager at Leuven before taking up the challenge of the Scott's then-new venture Ombra, a Venetian Bacaro on Cuba Street in 2013. For five years Lily was the familiar face that greeted customers with her French flair and vast knowledge and love of great food and wine. Now she's bringing her wealth of knowledge and experience to the Fermentery.

Uncanned music

Our music is pretty special too. For the first time in Wellington we'll bring you a unique reel to reel music system devised by Chicago based audio duo, Uncanned. This gives us a truly distinctive Whistling Sisters sound that makes every night a good time at the Fermentery. Our music, curated in Chicago by Scotty, will bring a beautiful blend of old and new, mellow and upbeat, retro funk combined with the odd bit of yodeling or a local new tune.
