Solid line-up but could do a better job of stocking the better beers. Lots of rotation here so worth coming back for a new experience every time.

Visited twice more on the latest trip, October 9 and 10 (2015). On the 9th had one beer served as another/incorrect beer, pointed this out, but was just received by "my colleague must’ve messed up, sorry" which is not acceptable! At least give me the beer I actually ordered... On the 10th had great service once more. So for most times have had fantastic service, then once what I’d never accept anywhere, guess it depends on who’s working, since it wasn’t even that busy at the time. Can get crowded and can get noisy. Good selection on tap though. Nice with the tasting paddle system, how it is implemented. Got the feeling there’s an upstairs part too, on 5 visits have only been by the bar myself.

Visited July 10 and 16 (2013).
First was evening and rather busy, some live music played.
Second arrived rather late after calling ahead and checking they’d be open a while longer.
Both times nice, fast, friendly service. Good knowledge of the beers and when they had time were happy to just chat with you.
Getting to the place the first time sent me on a detour, walked up Albion and turned right, did see a crosswalk on the other side before turning the corner, but figured I’d be able to cross easy down the road, but kept walking way past the pub before I had to turn a few streets down and finally track back and got to the correct side of the street. Second time just opted for the one crosswalk on Albion, made it so much easier.
About a 20 minute walk or so from the central station/Chinatown, decent area to walk in too. Fairly busy road outside, but didn’t see much space for parking.
Not that big, some seating available at tables, I spent most of my time on a chair by the bar. Offered 5x90 tasting paddles for $15, and had some 20 taps plus a hand pump to choose from. Manly domestic craft beers and some imports as well. Also a fair selection of bottles to go for if you wish. No WiFi available.
Could see beer from my hometown on bottles, Dugges from Sweden, nice surprise. Also some Danish micros on bottles.
First visit had a very nice helpful girl set me up with my beers. Second visit a guy that was very happy to help me out and chat, he was also a metal head so could talk some music as well.
One of the better places for my taste I visited in Sydney, and a place many of the breweries and even other bartenders recommended me to visit.
From my first to my second visit had a bunch of new beers on tap, so could get another paddle and get busy.
Make sure to stop by. Didn’t eat, but saw plenty that did, seems like a nice place to get food as well.
Visited once more, the afternoon of August 10.
Fairly busy, asked if I could get a paddle and include the handpump, that was no problem at all. Again quite a few new beers on tap.

Visited on 10th and 16th September 2015. This intimate alehouse is close to the popular Oxford Street, situated on a street corner in Flinders St. Friendly staff dispense a fine selection of local and global brews, and offer tasting paddles (flights) in addition. By no means cheap, but you get a good drop in a great atmosphere. The food menu read well but I had eaten elsewhere beforehand. Definitely one of Sydney’s best pubs - I loved it!

Had a couple here before the Roosters game. Great selection, good staff (One at least a Roosters man!). Tiny old Sydney pub with great interesting beers on tap. Didn’t try the food but it looked good. Pity I had to leave and go to the SFS (we won the game but the beer there is CRAP beyond imagining).

I visited on a Saturday afternoon and there were a handful of patrons other than myself there so it was relatively quiet. The tap selection is admirable with a couple of ciders on offer though a few were dry/bottles sold out. Service was OK if a tad brusque. Not cheap but seemingly on-par with the area. I’d happily revisit but won’t be in a hurry to do so.

Smallish place with a bigger area upstairs. Comfortably crowded on a Sunady night with a great vibe. Food was delicious. Tap list was the best I’ve seen in Australia. Of course, this was the first place I visited, but it was a great list anyway, with mostly dark beers left from an event of some sort. Staff was very friendly and helpful, Jason in particular made sure that I didn’t miss any of the unique beers on offer. Worth going out of your way to try this place. Minor quibble was that the music was a bit loud for conversation, which I guess was why everyone was shouting. Alcohol may have played a part too.

Nice selection of locals and international beer to please anyone’s palate. Service could be better, lots of conflicting answers on what is available, and they only allowed certain people to do paddles. I’d go back to tick beers, but didn’t like the vibe.
