Huge space that has quite a buzz when busy. Can be a bit loud & hectic at times, with service slow as a result. Selection is good with all creatures affiliated beers on tap. A solid bottled selection as well but pretty pricey. Good addition to the melb scene in an area that has always been tough to get good beer.
Huge open space with the nice industrial/sparce urban feel to it. The kitchen is in the back and open to watch, which I like. Service when I was there was decent, but it took forever for the waiter to come ask for us to have a second beer or the check. Food was very tasty but overpriced (two pulled pork sliders for $16). I snagged the taster, which was 4 "pony" sized beers for $13. They didn’t have anything special on, really. The standard lineup, three White Rabbit brews, and a randall offering that sounded terrible. (white ale with orange peel and licorice...unless you like licorice). I actually did like the place, but it just didn’t do anything to make it memorable.
Visited with a mate on July 26, 2013. Had a pizza for lunch, spicy meatball version. Only place I visit who served "pony" size, so you may get pretty small samples of beer. They carried 4 beers from Little Creatures, 2 beers from White Rabbit and 2 Pipsqueak ciders. Fairly crowded for lunch, but we got a table quick and had nice fast service for both food and beer. No problem when paying with a card. Not a huge selection, but a nice place to sit down for a few beers and a light meal. Didn’t check the bottled selection at all.
Little creatures selection obviously awesome but apart from that was a little disappointed. Was a little to cool for school and not comfortable like I expected a beer hall to be. The food was pricey and not much came out of the kitchen for your buck. Plough mans platter was only enough for one plough man. Saved or money and went to a local pub on the corner.
Nice place but it takes ages to get a seat at busy times. Casual atmosphere and nice staff. Has Little Creatures plus White Rabbit beers plus a bottle selection. Pricey but nice food. Not as good as the original in Fremantle but worth a visit.
I went in by myself during the day so judging the ambiance wasnt so good. The service was good but the selection was limited. I though being a dedicated Little Creatures place, there would be more LC on offer but its no more than you can get at a regular bottle shop. OK
You have to be here to experience the place. Built in an old warehouse or like. Big spaceous open to high ceiling, walls as they’ve been for years, open kitchen at the rear end. Thursday evening, arrived 5 pm and plac almost empty, by 7 pm almost full. 7 beers/ciders on tap plus some bottles. Great music, fantastic staff and excellent food. What else can you ask.
A really awesome place in Fitzroy. HUGE place that can fit seemingly 400+ people. Lots of places to sit: benches, couches, bar, tables. There are tons of great appetizers and snacks to order, all delicious or you can get proper lunch or dinner. Tap selection is definitely more than four, probably more like eight. Little Creatures of course is the featured brewery but expect a few other Aussie micro brews on tap like White Rabbit and Mountain Goat. Bottle list had some oddities like Nogne O #500 when I was there so give the bottle list a glance- you might have to literally peek into the fridges as I doubt they have a formal list. I can by for lunch and had a blast- crowded and fun with plenty of space to chat and relax. Very cool concept and highly recommended.
