The first time I went to Cookie they only had a few beers to choose from and the emphasis was definatley more on the wine list and cocktails. Now though after visiting again, I was pleasantly surprised.
The guest beer on tap that week was Chimay White and the beer list was awesome !!
Around 220 different beers on offer including the new release Emersons Bourbon Porter,
the new Jamiesons IPA ( so new it didnt even have a label ) and a shit load of German’s, Belgian’s and Italian’s with a respectable salute also to the local boys with about 50 Aussies to choose from.
NICE WORK !
Nice balcony in the sun. Good and friendly staff! Very helpfull. Even printed out a top 100 list of Ratebeer from Ozzi. Very nice selection of brews. Had some nice ones. International brews too. A must visit!
The selection has improved tremendously in the past months, and there are always interesting beers to try. Great place for local, kiwi, and american options. The staff is very friendly and interested. The food is delicious, and the space is great to relax.
Super weird place that seems like a beer bar, family restaurant, and internet hang out (one of the few in the city) in the middle of Chinatown, color me confused. Despite the weird vibe, best beer draft list in the city behind Local. 20 taps, around a 100 bottles of fresh new NZ beers, Euro and American. Staff was friendly and quick, not a huge beer knowledge but enough to get by. This place is worth a visit in Melbourne, especially if you don’t want to go all the way to Local.

Atmosphere is great - Plenty of people. Staff are knowledgeable and I like that they use the Clipp app for tabs. Food that we had was good - if a tad expensive for what it was. Beer list is excellent as is location. Will be back.
Nice vibe in here. But it’s a little hard to tell if it’s a bar a restaurant. We treated it as a bar though. Plenty of stuff on tap to choose from including a cookie colab with bridge road which was pretty cool. Some more mediocre taps but there was always a few shining lights in there. Quite suave sort of place. Service was great. The girl behind the bar knew her stuff and was very friendly too. Definitely worth visiting again
Went on a Saturday night this place had an excellent atmosphere (dimmed lighting). Had a some pretty cool stuff on tap including some Birra del Borgo, Tuatara, Moylans. A little expensive but not much more than you expect.
