Really enjoy going to the local to see what new beers are on tap. Good service from friendly helpful staff. Plenty of events and the food is not to bad. Cheese platter was awesome and matched with the beer can’t get much better.

My favourite beer place in Melbourne. Always twenty interesting beers on tap, many events, and great food make this a paradise for beer-enthusiasts. My only criticism is that the bottled beers are pricey.

Wish it was my LOCAL. Extensive range on tap. I will forever hold a grudge against Qantas for robbing me of an addittional 2 hours here.

Don’t get much better than this when it comes to a beer bar. Makes me think of the Coopers ad, "if it isn’t at your local then consider moving", because it makes me want to stay in this area. Staff are good value. Look out for the special days, where they put on beers from a particular area. Always pretty busy and always with a wealth of good beers on tap.

Loved this place - hubby brews beer so whenever we get babysitting we head to a beer bar somewhere in Melb. for the night. This was the best we’ve been to so far - great ambience, fabulous tapas upstairs and good jazz a bit later. Service was pretty good (except for lack of loo paper in the ladies) but the beers.... well, best to go there and taste the range youself !! we managed most of the 20 on tap but as they keep changing, we’ll have to go back again and again !! Fell in love with The Steam Exchange Truffles Porter - not as a quoffing beer, but as a liqueur beer!! My only complaint is that the place hadn’t opened when i lived in east st. kilda or it could have been MY local and i wouldn’t have moved.

Best place in Melbourne but wished they did a better job curating the beers. Some good ones, but intermixed with a lot of noise.

Great service, large selection on tap (never needed to go to bottles yet). Food is decent, especially the smaller snacks. Probably my go to bar in Melbourne if i’m going for a drink.

Awesome place in Melbourne. I had the sampler and the food was really great. It was pretty packed when I was there so the vibe was good. The staff know their beer and handle the stuff properly. Theres a little bottle shop section attached with a huge range of stuff from all over the world. Love it! I m going back when Im in town

Great place to go to for beer. 20 beers on tap, great care to lower the carbonation on their ales and serve at appropriate temperature. There are 4 guest taps that have specialty beers and 16 other more common beers. Pricing is reasonable and there is also a decent range of imported bottle beers. Recomended for any real beer lover.

The new benchmark of beer pubs in Melbourne in my opinion. Nice decor, no trashy shit, just couches and an awesome (belgian style) beer board. They had Redoak DIPA, Hergreaves hill ESB, Feral Rust, The beast, and a bunch of other exellent beers on the 20 or so taps. Service is excellent, haven’t eaten there yet but will be sure to in the coming weeks. Crowd is pretty young and a bit busy on Fridays when they have live music. Not far from Balaclava station (300m west down carlisle st). Beers seem expensive at first but the pint prices are pretty solid, and coopers best extra is pretty cheap. I still really like the royston but this probably has the edge at the moment.
