Pluses - Many styles of beer, fresh and reasonably well made. Good service. Interesting Decor. Minuses - Expensive. Unnecessarily so. A bit upmarket for a beer establishment. Too focused on awards and brewing to style (could be a plus as well!). Overall a nice stop in Sydney.

Pretty up-market kind of place in the centre of Sydney. Good range of beers (though a little bit hit & miss) and great quality food. Fairly pricy. Worth a visit if in Sydney.

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!

Nice, clean brew pub. Seated and bar tables. 2 tanks in the pub. Nice selection, fair price. Food was not that good.

This was a very nice place to stop by while I was in Sydney. I liked it better than Lord Nelson’s. Solid food, and the service was great...even recommending a lot of other brewpubs we should try while we were in the area. Solid beer. I enjoyed it.

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.

Went for the beer dinner and the food was well matched although all the beer was served too cold. Atmosphere was good and the staff were knowledgable.

Not a bad place, the bar staff were really helpful and knowledgeable but i did feel a bit let down by the beer. For the price they charge i expected better than better to average homebrew.

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.
