Good location down by the piers in the Central Business District. They serve a large selection of Mac beers on tap. Service was quite friendly but servers should know a bit more about thier products they serve. Place is quite large with a interesting ambiance. Like the lamps hanging from the ceiling. Not a bad place to check out if you are in town. Not far from The Brewery @ Britomat.

Big place. Had some Mac on tap, basically english style beers and ciders. Really did a job on the decoration of it. But the beers are average. Brew on Quay just a few 100 meters along the Quay is a much better pick. Didnít have any food.

Good location near the waterfront in the CBD. Pretty much the full range of Macís beers on draught - served in somewhat pretentious fashion with individual thermometers on the fonts. Marked down on value as $7 for well under a pint is too much. The food is also overpriced but quite good and you are paying for the location and reasonable service.
Check out the upside-down lampstands on the ceiling.

Check this place out for the Macís brews when in town. Located by the wharf. The Hop Rocker and Sassy Red were the standouts for me. Service was great considering it was a busy night.
