12 taps a 100 bottles but I left feeling whelmed. The drafts are pretty weak, I was expecting some rare fresh goodness, and it was mostly lagers, 2 pales and 1 ipa on tap. The bottle list was big, but a bit out of date. Nothing particularly rare, but some solid stuff. The service was ok, nice but didnít know a ton about beer, more surface type suggestions. They have really good pizza with toppings like kangaroo, emu and crocodile that push this above to make it worth a stop.

Old hotel in the Rocks with a few good handles. Handy for a crawl that includes Harts Pub and the Lord Nelson. Overall, the tap list is a bit thin, and while there are a lot of bottles they arenít sufficiently compelling to make up for it. I would say a second tier stop in Sydney for the beer geek, but good atmosphere makes it a decent stop for the more casual beer lover.

Visited multiple times October 2012 and October 2015, both times also visited during the annual Australian Beer Festival. Gourmet pizza that is worth the trip in itself. friendly staff and good selection of beers. If visiting I can really recommend to try the Sharerís Lager that is in a very good condition and just might surprise you!

Latest visit daytime Friday October 9, 2015.
Got a paddle ($14) with my brother, very friendly nice staff. Didnít eat. Was booked as for tables shortly after we were there, so can probably be rather crowded.

Visited on July 12, 2013.
Walked over from Lord Nelson, wasnít as easy to find as I thought from my map, needed to get up from one street level to another, can take a bit of looking for unless youíre more used to the city than I am.
Free WiFi available. Two bars available, with slightly different selection, not that clear what they do have. Draught selection was a bit disappointing actually, I wasnít impressed.
Tasting paddles available, 5 beers, forgot the price.
Pretty close to Harts Pub, but Harts felt better for me personally. Still worth it to drop by Iíd say.
Didnít eat. Some indoors seating, as well as some outdoors. Was fairly busy even early in the day, well it was a Friday and well after lunch after all.

Hotel bar is more of a traditional pub. Limited taps, but more extensive bottle list, mostly Australian. Sidewalk tables available, on a quiet side street. Inside was quite boisterous..

I loved that place when was visiting Sydney. Used their menu as a sort of road-map of Australian beer. At the time of my visit (couple years ago) the choice was huge - about hundred beers - drafts & bottles combined. Was really impressed.

Inconsistent from a beer point of view. Donít seem to have Scharers Bock anymore. Most staff just counter slaves (take your money, hereís your beer). Pizzas are good, great place to sit outside.

A dozen or so local drafts, including two house made offerings. Nothing very special but they serve flights of 5 samples for $14, which is a bit of a bargain in Sydney.

Ended up here 2 different nights. The tap selection wasnít impressive, but they had a nice bottle list and full coolers. The wings were good, pizza looked and smelled good but I didnít try it. The staff was helpful but service was slow.

Huge place on multiple levels with lots of nooks and crannies. Interesting bottle offerings, and staff didnít mind giving me a tour of the fridges. Lots of off duty staff were drinking there as well, always a good sign. Very worthwhile visit.
