Great place with a charming interior and well-done up bar area especially. Paddles of 5 available for $20, not atrocious for the city. Beer selection was very good, and the service was super friendly. Definitely worth a stop on a CBD/city centre pub crawl.
If there is a ’clubman’ award for craft venues then these guys need to win it for Melbourne. They keep plugging away and from what I can see remain committed to the craft beer cause. Tap list is good but probably not the place to come for 10%+ Scandi beers. Pricing fair for Melbourne. Of course the interior is a bit daggy but absolutely not out of step with plenty of highly rated places I have been to in the US.
I like the concept here. Only Victorian local craft. And it’s done well. Supporting local small businesses is always a nice thing to see. The parmy’s are fucking massive! $25 for one is fairly good value when the giant chicken comes out on your plate. Kind of has an Irish pub feel to it. Must stop here for a parmy alone

Almost always full on dinner time so it will get really noisy. 2 Rotating tap every month. Decent amount of beers on tap and bottles. The size of the parmas are quite big and relatively expensive to usual parmas on pubs but this ain’t your usual parma, this is one of the best parma in melbourne.

Nice place, nothing fancy, that serves only Victoria craft beers. Service is good and the bartenders are friendly and are very knowledgeable about the beers they serve. They have a steady turnover or rotation of beers about every 3 months or so. You are able to order a beer paddle of 5 beers to sample if you are not sure what you want. The food menu is a bit limited but what they serve is good. Nice place to check out if you have time.
Visited once, on July 25, 2013. Had a nice chili sauce covered chicken, though opted out of the cheese since I’m not much for dairy products. No WiFi. Plenty of indoors seating. Centrally located in the outskirts of Chinatown. Decent selection of draught and bottled beers. Nice service.
Odd place. It looks like an 80s country motel dining room. The beer is insanely cold and served in ordinary glasses. But they’d already run out of a new local beer that had yet to be listed here (or appear elsewhere). Tap focus is on fresh and local at around 5%.
