Camons  (637) Hasselager, Denmark | March 11, 2017
Classy highend wine, spirits and beer shop located in close distance to Central train station. A huge number of Australian beers, big import section with sine of the best from the rest of the world. Friendly and very helpfull service with my questions about the beers. Helped my pick a few good bottles to bring back home. Prices maybe abit on the high side or maybe im not gotten used to Sydney pricing yet. Well worth the visit.

An excellent place to pick up hard to get local and imported craft beers. A good selection of interesting wines and spirits too, but its the beers that are the specialty in this good central location.

OK, best bottle shop in the CBD of Sydney. That is pretty much the deal. Beers in the fridge are usually solid but the beers in the back room are better. Good selection of OZ, and international. Does get some good OZ rarities. Can suffer from a lot of older stock that does not move. Growler selection is bland at best. Staff helpful and know their stuff and Ian is one of the most informed in Sydney on beer. Expect CBD pricing though. That is the issue. but hey, the place is good real estate. Better suburban shops though

Part of a craft beer vacation with friends through Asia. Seemed like a good start. I’m not really a hophead yet so the selection seemed pretty solid to me.

gnoff  (693) Göteborg, Sweden | October 13, 2015
Latest visit on October 13, 2015. Stopped by to hand over two beers for them to sample, also got 5 cans/bottles of beer and mead to take back, cost of these particular ones $57. Really nice selection of domestic and imported beers. Not very cheap, but worth it. Stop by if in the neighbourhood, then walk to the back room for the beer filled shelves.

Visited twice on July 17, 2013. Once before lunch, once in the evening before going back to the hostel.
Why oh why didn’t I check this place out earlier on my visit?? What a place! If you’re going to on bottle shop in Sydney, make it this one!
Sign outside boasting with 432 beers!
On Elizabeth St., close to Central.
Some cold bottles of beer and cider that you see at first, then you get directed to the room temp bottles around the corner, oh my.
Nice friendly service. I’d go back often did I live in Sydney.
Nice broad selection of domestic and imported bottles.

A really good beer selection. I wasn’t expecting such an extensive range but the back part of the store sure did deliver with single and large format bottles. Of course, most interest will be in the Aussie stuff for visitors and locals alike and there’s a good choice of Sydney and state breweries here. Decent NZ selection too. There’s fridges keeping the six packs chilled. Two taps pouring for growler fills. Staff were friendly and quick to offer assistance. The place to shop for beer in central Sydney.
