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!!!

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.

Love the interior, awesome building. The vibe and crowd isnít quite the equal of its bigger Melbourne brother (too many people I asked in there what they were drinking responded "I donít know"), but itís hard to make any complaints when you have 20 taps on offer.

Decent place, though the atmosphere feels a bit faux and the staff are amongst the least bright Iíve come across in any bar - though they do have rudimentary knowledge of beer and were somewhat friendly. Beyond that, this place is brilliant. Selection of rotating Oz brews - though not a large portion of the entire taplist - was spot on and served in good condition and temperature. Prices seemed reasonable. Food was excellent (I enjoyed a Salami Pizza). Menu is informative and explains about beer styles and food indicates what beer goes with which food. Very good presentation for attracting people to try craft beer. Did not having anything from bottles, but list seemed impressive. A must for any out of town visitor to Sydney. Also it should be mentioned, I told the bar staff they need to put operating hours on thier website. They said they will get on this. I am not holding my breath. Until then, just guess!

Visited here a few times recently, and was quite impressed. 20 taps, almost all of which were micros, and 3 of which were from a featured aussie brewer (Moo Brew when I was there). For A$13 you could get 5 samples of the tap beers, which is also nice. Bottle selection was pretty good with a number of Belgian offerings, even if they were kind of spendy. Staff was very friendly, and seemed to know some about the beer. Very cool feel to the place, even if the neighborhood was so-so. Definitely worth stopping at if in Sydney.

I visited on the day of the US SpecTAPular, which feature 6 Rogue ales on tap as well as 14 Aussie micros, with a few brews being the first time made available in the country. There was a great atmosphere and the event was organised extremely well. Tasting paddles are available with 60ml samples with is great for getting through quite a few beers for ratings. The food is plentiful and great value all round. A true beer bar for the Sydney scene.

A hugely welcome addition to the Sydney beer scene. This new specialist beer bar has 20 beers on tap plus the best bottled beer list in the city. The tap list changes all the time and you can check out the latest line-up here: http://thelocaltaphouse.blogspot.com/ The ambiance is quirky with tiled walls and an eclectic array of seating. The bar service is efficient and helpful, if a little cold. The beers are served at something like the right temperature - the first bar in Sydney to do so, as far as I know. Bravo for that. The tap list isnít always exciting but thatís probably more of a reflection of the state of Australian micro-brewing than any failure on the part of the pub. The food is competent by all accounts. A huge thumbs up for what theyíre trying to do here.
