Upscale bar right near Darling Harbour with 10-12 house beers on tap. You can do flights of 4 for $12, which is a decent deal for the city. Service was extremely friendly, which certainly made our experience. Expansive interior with tons of seating. Worth the drop.

First time October 2015, did not eat. Nice beer selection, also had an offer for one free beer if you check in/like on the selection social media platforms. Staff seems to be both knowledgeable and service minded. Has sample paddles.

Not sure I’d call this a brewpub since they don’t brew on premise, more of a taproom or cellar door.

Latest visit on Thursday evening October 8, 2015.
Got there around 10 pm with my brother, just before last drinks, so we only stayed for one beer each. They do seem to to serve sample paddles of 4 for $12 now. Lots of new beers compared to my last visit 2 odd years ago.

Visited again around 9-10 pm Tue Oct 13, 2015. Had two tasting paddles or 4 beers each, $12 each. Fairly small servings, but plenty enough for a rating/taste of the beers. 12 taps on, a selection of bottles, that can range fairly expensive. Nice service. Small outdoors area available.

Visited a few times (at least 3) in July 2013, first and second were 10 and 11 July, third was the 16th.
First visit asked for a sample paddle or similar, but they only served samples with food and since I got there at night the kitchen was closed when I arrived.
Very nice and helpful staff though, talked to them a bit on my travel plans and wanting to sample as many local craft beers as possible, then they agreed to let me have samples of all the beers they currently had on tap for a payment of what they saw fit, I like it!
In the end paid $18 for 10 samples, awesome!
Nice place with bar seating, tables seating or outdoors seating. No wifi available, some music playing.
On my second and third visits had a guy behind the bar that was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the beers.
I wouldn’t really say this is a brewpub, more a cellar door for the brewery that’s actually not located in the same building at all.
Plenty of their own bottles, including vintages, available as well.
Bottles could be a bit expensive, but most of them not too bad. Didn’t eat on any of my visits.
Located on Clarence St. in between King St. and Market St. On the west side of the street, so on your left if walking up from Market St.
Vintage bottles available.
On my third visit got asked if I was "Sydney Banks" or something?

Small brewpub, all taps are their own brews. did not try the food. Well rounded selection at the moment, but appears to rotate a bit. Located in Sydney CBD, very accessible.

Only stayed for a bread plate and a beer but nice place with staff who know what they are talking about. Food is good. Beer? That’s what it’s here for!

We stopped in here for dinner and drinks but the kitchen closes real early and at 9pm we were limited to a couple pizzas. The pizzas were quite tasty, but we had hoped for more of a meal than that. Oh well. Just be aware that the kitchen does close a touch early. Decent sized space that is sort of segmented into two rooms/spaces. The bar area and a more dining room type space. The location in the CBD makes it a bit classier than many brewpubs. Fairly sparse in the way of decorations. The barkeepers seemed to enough about the beers but were very disinterested at the same time. I was hoping they’d have some of their Baltic Porter available but to no avail. However, when I had inquired about it the barkeeper figured it was time to up-sell the tourist and started showing me all these "amazing" beers (at $75 or more per bottle). No thanks. When I told him I’d just have something off draught he definitely got a little snooty about it. Not horrible or too off-putting, but annoying just the same. Anyhow, the beer is pretty good, though not great. The APA and the Paddy’s Craic were my favorites of the night. The organic pale ale was pretty bad, IMO. I’d stop in again for a pint of something but I don’t think this is a must visit if you are touring through Sydney.

Visited in mid afternoon with the air conditioning definitely a bonus. A good array of beers with various styles and award winners. Always a cask conditioned ale available plus a bottles of their own products. Be aware that had no take away licence so can only drink them on the premises. The non-standard brews may prove elusive.

Wow, I was blown away. This place is the bomb. The manager, (done gone and forget his name again like the fool I am) and the rest of the staff are super friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Price/value is excellent. Tried a variety of beers- all delicious. Brewmaster has won a lot of awards. It’s impressive that he can craft so well across such a wide range. I’ve never had a trout that was salmon red before. Customers were equally friendly Tried to convince them to step up to the modern world with wi fi. Any event, serious class act,

A nice big bar and lots of seating in the restaurant area. I had a tasting plate (small dishes matched to a beer sample). The food was OK, but nothing special. The beer was good solid beers, they had a list of vintage bottles that looked good but were on the expensive side.
