Has closed down, same location now has a place called Yardarm Taphouse. (October 2015)
Formerly known as "Murray’s at Manly". As I understood it name change only.
Visited on July 14, 2013.
Right by Manly Beach, walking distance from Manly ferry from Sydney, as well as from 4 Pines.
18 taps of different Murray’s beers, plus 2 hand pumps that on this day had the same beers as on other taps, just they were on hand pumps instead. At my visit was Retro and Dark Knight. I sort of remember other non Murray’s beers as well, so might have had more taps still?
Beautifully located right by the beach, lovely scenery with the ocean.
Tasting paddles available, 4 tastings á 20 cl for $19. Tasters served very full. Beers served very cold, plenty of ice on the taps.
Had some board games and card games around for those wanting to play some while having a few beers. Pretty popular, plenty of people in there. Also a fair amount of families with kids. Had a guy in one corner playing live music with a guitar and singing, also played some harmonica.
I didn’t dig the menu for food much, very picky I am, so didn’t eat. Though I did sample 12 beers via 3 sample paddles.
Nice fast service, my last paddle I could have even though they very about to close, I could sit and enjoy it taking my time while they cleaned the place, they only closed due to lack of people at night (between second and third paddle I went for food, a lot less people at the Rubber Duckie once I got back). Can’t find their opening hours online and didn’t write it down when I visited.
Got to be fairly cold in the evening when visiting during winter.
I’d go back for sure if I could!
Never checked or thought to ask about their bottled selection.
