One of Sydney’s best beer bars, and a leading cheerleader for the local craft beer scene. The tap beer doesn’t always seem as fresh as it might be but you can’t fault the range. Check out the beer menu for a huge list of Aussie micros. (Bit depressing how few of the beers on the list are any good, but that’s another story....!) Top-notch pizzas and a relaxed atmosphere.

Big pub not far from the harbour, but quite a climp up there. On a corner in 2 stairs with a bar both up and downstairs. Seating outside, but all taking when i went for lunch here. Big, still fairly cozy inside and a change of pace from the busy tourist area on the harbour. About 15 beers on tap including some fine Australian micros. 5 piece padle avaible. Had a pizza wich was great. Good service, allthough she managed to mess up the order of my flight, sorted it out tho. Decent value even if tho the flight is more expensive than Buckleys directly on the pier. Still worth a visit tho.
Nice little place a few minutes’ walk from Hart’s Pub. Taplist is pretty generic, with not the most interesting Aussie taps. You can do a flight for a reasonable (for Australia) price. Service is friendly. Due to the taplist, I’d say it’s not really worth a stop, but if you’re in the area and want to visit something else besides Hart’s Pub, this is a decent choice.
Visited on Sunday 20th March. Large bar with seating outside under a verandah on the Rocks. It’s a bit tourist central but do have a reasonably good range of beer. Prices are not too bad. Food is decent. You can try various Aussie critters on a pizza. It’s a large place with lots of floors and plenty of seating. Decent old pub. Worth a visit

Old hotel in the Rocks with a few good handles. Handy for a crawl that includes Harts Pub and the Lord Nelson. Overall, the tap list is a bit thin, and while there are a lot of bottles they aren’t sufficiently compelling to make up for it. I would say a second tier stop in Sydney for the beer geek, but good atmosphere makes it a decent stop for the more casual beer lover.
Visited multiple times October 2012 and October 2015, both times also visited during the annual Australian Beer Festival. Gourmet pizza that is worth the trip in itself.
friendly staff and good selection of beers. If visiting I can really recommend to try the Sharer’s Lager that is in a very good condition and just might surprise you!

Latest visit daytime Friday October 9, 2015. Got a paddle ($14) with my brother, very friendly nice staff. Didn’t eat. Was booked as for tables shortly after we were there, so can probably be rather crowded.
Visited on July 12, 2013. Walked over from Lord Nelson, wasn’t as easy to find as I thought from my map, needed to get up from one street level to another, can take a bit of looking for unless you’re more used to the city than I am. Free WiFi available. Two bars available, with slightly different selection, not that clear what they do have. Draught selection was a bit disappointing actually, I wasn’t impressed. Tasting paddles available, 5 beers, forgot the price. Pretty close to Harts Pub, but Harts felt better for me personally. Still worth it to drop by I’d say. Didn’t eat. Some indoors seating, as well as some outdoors. Was fairly busy even early in the day, well it was a Friday and well after lunch after all.
I loved that place when was visiting Sydney. Used their menu as a sort of road-map of Australian beer. At the time of my visit (couple years ago) the choice was huge - about hundred beers - drafts & bottles combined. Was really impressed.
