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,

I went with my wife back in April 2008. This place is beer heaven. They brew their own beer with flying colors. They serve a variety of dishes made with beer and these dishes are matched with beers. Food was excellent. The uniformed staff is interested in beer; they are eager to tell you the how’s and why’s of the brewing and the beer-food-matching and they seem happy and proud to be working there. The atmosphere is maybe a bit "high establishment", meaning you may want to dress up a bit if you’ve been running around town in your most comfy tourist outfit all day. It’s also a bit on the pricey side. But all worth it and highly recommended!

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.

Very friendly and helpful staff - indeed I don’t think I have vere been in a pub with staff more eager to engage in detailled discussion of the beer. The atmosphere is a little antispetic in terms of decor and style, but on the other hand it is also a a place that beer enthusiasts search out. I didn’t actually try the food, but it looked excellent. The selection of Redoak’s own beers is awesome. Perhaps there is too much emphasis on the fruit beers - whilst the Framboise is lovely, the others I tried did not work for me - then again, the choice is much wider than this. The only downside is that it is astronomically expensive.

Great location and a really nice place for a few beers. Of course the star is possibly some of the best beer in Australia. Can get a bit pricy but it’s expected for the location and high quality of the beer. Food is great and bar staff know their stuff. Highly recommended.

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?

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.
