Had a couple here before the Roosters game. Great selection, good staff (One at least a Roosters man!). Tiny old Sydney pub with great interesting beers on tap. Didn’t try the food but it looked good. Pity I had to leave and go to the SFS (we won the game but the beer there is CRAP beyond imagining).

I visited on a Saturday afternoon and there were a handful of patrons other than myself there so it was relatively quiet. The tap selection is admirable with a couple of ciders on offer though a few were dry/bottles sold out. Service was OK if a tad brusque. Not cheap but seemingly on-par with the area. I’d happily revisit but won’t be in a hurry to do so.

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 I’ve 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 didn’t 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.

Nice selection of locals and international beer to please anyone’s palate. Service could be better, lots of conflicting answers on what is available, and they only allowed certain people to do paddles. I’d go back to tick beers, but didn’t like the vibe.

Always Great beers on their rotating tap system, pretty good food, nice atmosphere. Although the prices could drop a tad, however you have to pay for the good stuff.

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.

Mainly AUST stuff but the USA stuff they had was awesome...got to try dark horse plead the 5th which is super rare here so keep an eye out for something special at this bar. service was ok i snubbed by one of the bar tenders but he must of been having a bad day. overall number 1 sydney craft beer bar hands down. awesome pulled pork burgers!!

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.
