I had a good experience here though was disappointed with what was offered on the taps when I was there. The Baltic Porter & Oatmeal stout were delicious (albeit served way too cold) and the food was well matched to the styles. The barman was very knowledgeable and helpful, though another downside is the pricing is at the higher end.

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.

Interesting and surprisingly wide array of house beers keeps the attention. Atmosphere is s little dull. About 20 house beers on the menu. No guest taps or bottles. Berliner, Flemish sour, Christmas beer, dubbel. dopplebock, IPA, APA, saison, wit, it’s all over the place. Brews are unrefined but playful, and effort is present. Worth a stop.

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.

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?

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.

Tickers paradise in Sydney, 12 taps + another 10-12 bottles. Everything was solid, but very few stand outs. Service was exceptional. I’ll be back for sure, one of the better places in Sydney.

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.

I was simply amazed at the number of beers on tap (26) when I was there and they said they get up to 35 beer. Damn. Atomosphere could be any semi-upscale urban restaurant/pub, nice. The crowd is definetely the urban professionals and prices reflect that. The beers were a bit more hit and miss than I thought, with a possible infection problem in some. The rauch had butterscotch, which was strange. However, their well known beers like the Baltic Porter were amazing. We met the brewer’s sister and she was wonderful. Very friendly and knowledgable. I really enjoyed talking with her. Overall, this is a great place that I will be back to in Sydney. Wish they pulled out the hand pump more often, but still a must stop on Sydney tour.

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.
