Great rotating selection of beers on tap. Wide range of bottled beers. Events to promote beer appreciation. Best beer venue in Sydney, by a long way. Great pizza, too.

After a bit of a bad spell, this place has come back into itís own. Fantastic beer selection (maybe itís not as good as some interstate counterparts, but itís the best in Sydney), great food and some fun special events. The staff can be a bit hit and miss, trick is to come in during the quieter times, and youíll get some guys who really know their stuff and are more than willing to have a bit of a chat about the beer. Overall, the best craft beer bar in Sydney.

Awesome bar. Huge rotation of unique beers, a perfect place if you want to taste beers. Only problem is the beers are so rare you often never taste them again.

Rotating taps with some great beers from Oz, NZ, and international guest beers. Friendly staff who know their beer.
Edit: The rooftop bar is now open, and it just makes this place even better!!!

Smallish place with a bigger area upstairs. Comfortably crowded on a Sunady night with a great vibe. Food was delicious. Tap list was the best Iíve seen in Australia. Of course, this was the first place I visited, but it was a great list anyway, with mostly dark beers left from an event of some sort. Staff was very friendly and helpful, Jason in particular made sure that I didnít miss any of the unique beers on offer. Worth going out of your way to try this place. Minor quibble was that the music was a bit loud for conversation, which I guess was why everyone was shouting. Alcohol may have played a part too.

Still my first love when it comes to craft beer. Love this place, and miss it dearly. The burgers are great, the chilli fries a necessity. Loved smoking clove cigars on the roof back in the day, and chilling with good friends. A beer bar to fall in love with.

Visited July 10 and 16.
First was evening and rather busy, some live music played.
Second arrived rather late after calling ahead and checking theyíd be open a while longer.
Both times nice, fast, friendly service. Good knowledge of the beers and when they had time were happy to just chat with you.
Getting to the place the first time sent me on a detour, walked up Albion and turned right, did see a crosswalk on the other side before turning the corner, but figured Iíd be able to cross easy down the road, but kept walking way past the pub before I had to turn a few streets down and finally track back and got to the correct side of the street. Second time just opted for the one crosswalk on Albion, made it so much easier.
About a 20 minute walk or so from the central station/Chinatown, decent area to walk in too. Fairly busy road outside, but didnít see much space for parking.
Not that big, some seating available at tables, I spent most of my time on a chair by the bar. Offered 5x90 tasting paddles for $15, and had some 20 taps plus a hand pump to choose from. Manly domestic craft beers and some imports as well. Also a fair selection of bottles to go for if you wish. No WiFi available.
Could see beer from my hometown on bottles, Dugges from Sweden, nice surprise. Also some Danish micros on bottles.
First visit had a very nice helpful girl set me up with my beers. Second visit a guy that was very happy to help me out and chat, he was also a metal head so could talk some music as well.
One of the better places for my taste I visited in Sydney, and a place many of the breweries and even other bartenders recommended me to visit.
From my first to my second visit had a bunch of new beers on tap, so could get another paddle and get busy.
Make sure to stop by. Didnít eat, but saw plenty that did, seems like a nice place to get food as well.
Visited once more, the afternoon of August 10.
Fairly busy, asked if I could get a paddle and include the handpump, that was no problem at all. Again quite a few new beers on tap.
