Inside - loud club music (not my thing). Outside - band playing, but too loud if trying to discuss stuff with anyone! Beer - Lion Lager + commercial piffle. Food - mixed grill was ok & price not excessive, but limited choice. Despite being within spitting distance of our hotel (Hotel City Rest) we never felt the desire to return for a second visit.

An atmospheric location in the Fort is a positive. Tap beer is now only limited to Lion Lager along with a few mainstream green bottle lagers. This is as good as it gets in Colombo for beer options!

Well, it’s not easy to get a decent beer place in SL / Colombo. This one has the ubiquitous Lion Lager on draft. But that’s about it. Still bringing forward the excuse of the flooding, no other beers available on draft, not much better in bottle, despite almost all liquor shops now stocking Lion Stout / Strong or ABC Stout. So don’t be mislead by the name... (FYI - was rebranded a few years ago from "Brewery by O!")

Lion stout draft, decent food, great atmosphere. Not a beer Mecca at all, but still nice even if it’s Lion.

Not actually a brewery, but it is the place in Colombo to try Lion beer (owned by the brewery), and has Lion Stout on tap along with the other Lion offerings. Located in the Dutch Hospital entertainment area, it’s a somewhat trendy bar with a spacious interior (if you want aircon and slightly loud music), as well as a few tables outside. There’s also a reasonable food selection. A word of warning, although it maybe open earlier, they will not serve beer until 17:00. Also, you must eat to order alcohol, although this can just be a small snack and once you say that you’ve eaten it’s fine. There’s not may places to get the local beers in Colombo, but this is worth visiting if you are in the area after a day of fumes, bad smells, crazy traffic and sightseeing. The courtyards of the Dutch Hospital area provide a very welcome escape from the chaos outside.
