The Local Taphouse – Sydney Version

16 04 2009

I’ve blogged before about the Local Taphouse coming from Melbourne to Sydney.

I also promised more info once I had been.

Well I’ve now been (last Thursday night – how good are long weekends?) and I can say it was AWESOME!

They have decorated the place really well. Similar style to the Melbourne Taphouse. Tram seats along the walls, small tables, plenty of wood and leather-bound books (classy).

But clearly, it’s all about the beer.

The range is exceptional, certainly more than you could get through in a few visits. The also do a feature brewery each month and focus on that brewerys offerings. This month it is Bridge Road Brewers down in Victoria. I had their Aussie Ale and their “Bling” IPA. Adri had the Hargreaves hill ESB – which is especially tasty.

The food ain’t bad either. Adri had the mussells (all self-respecting beer venues must sell mussells these days) and I had a simple, tasty and reasonably priced pizza.

The location is a little awkward, parking wasn’t particularly easy. But I will definitely be going back for another round.

I visited the melbourne taphouse on our recent trip, and it didn’t disappoint. I note from their website that their featured brewery in June will be mountain goat. That definitely warrants a visit, even if the parking is hopeless.

Hey Mr Cheese, who works so close to the ‘real taphouse’, maybe you should take your maths class down there for lunch with their rulers and do a project on exactly how much they are skimping on their “10 inch” pizzas. All I’m saying is that it’s a good thing I filled up on beer.
