The taproom is located at the back of the hotel and easy to find. Service was a bit scattered but they were friendly enough. 4 beers on tap, available on a sampler tray for $4 plus tax ($4.83 US), or 330mL pours for $5 (or larger sizes). Beer itself is pretty forgettable but clean enough. Ambience was odd, as there was no one else there (on a Saturday evening). If you’re in PP, it’s convenient enough to get to and worth it for the few ticks. But it’s not a must stop.

Visited here on Sat 6th Feb. At first there was no one behind the bar but a server soon appeared. Started with a tasting flight of the four beers, mostly pretty good, then had some big ones because I got talking to a couple staying there. Yes it’s expensive but really no more than the average "craft beer" place in the west. Certainly worth a visit if you are in Phnom Penh.

Very nice ambiance and service. Half the beers were very decent (I had four). The biggest problem, however, was the value, way above other places in Phnom Penh and they also charge a 10% service fee, which I thought was just too much. My poor friend ended up paying USD 4.4 for a can of coke. A rip-off, but once youve tried everything PP has to offer beer-wise, this is where you should go.

Finally hit Cambodia, and while our expectations were low, we ended up staying for 5 rounds. Great view of the river. Beer selection was limited to 4 brewed on site. The girl was friendly.

Visited here in November 2014. Huge very modern hotel/luxury apartment complex with shops and...a brewpub! It’s located in the foyer which is a little odd perhaps. Anyway, there’s an outdoor patio which overlooks the river which would be great but it was being used for a wedding on our visit. Certainly provided some interesting people watching. Onto the beer... With ref to JapanTony’s review, there’s no point comparing the cost to a mass produced Cambodian lager in a can for $1. That’s not what this is so of course it’s more expensive. I actually thought it was fine for the price. Like I say, very pleasant surroundings. I don’t think I paid $7 per pint including tax and service though - less than that. Anyway, I would say that this is as worth visiting as any place in Phnom Penh for beer. Decent location means at least it’s not a trek miles out of the way.

I was excited when I saw the posters advertising microbrew here, but in truth it was a huge disappointment. Paid for a three 50ml each sampler, price said $3 but had to pay $5 after service charge and tax. Pints are $7 plus tax&service. This in a country where $1 pint of lager is common. If it was great beer I might concede it, but the beer all tasted thin and lacked hop character. One made with local honey showed a little creativity, but was still left wanting. Apparently the brewer flys in from Singapore once a month to brew. Nice set up, and real shame they don’t have someone there who knows how to run it.
