Loved this place. The staff were friendly and very good and helping you decide which beers to try. The value is good as you get a real pint. Very friendly place and the food looked good. Nice courtyard with smoking tables. Happy hour at 4pm. Nice and sunny around this time and a good place to start the night.

Killing time before my flight home to Melbourne saw this place had great reviews and thought i would check it out.

Both the food and drinks menu are excellent. Because it is a functioning brewing company alot of the beers and ciders are used in cooking the food. Also, as you would expect their beer list is great to. If i had time i would have tried them all.

Had the chicken parma with jalapeno hushpuppies and steak fries. $30 which is a bit steep for a parma but they do everything right, not just slop junk on the plate. Was very happy with my choice.

Sampled a few beers, had a couple of alcoholic ginger beers and was on my way.

Has a beer garden, and because it is located down an alley way everything seems secluded and is a perfect place to spend an afternoon having a drink with friends.

Tucked away down a laneway, this bar was found on one of our list of numerous bars in West End on a Friday night. Voted No. 1 in our book for this local brewing Company making delicious beers with unique flavours suited to our diverse palette. Great atmosphere, good vibes and the food looked good too - maybe next time!

Weeknight family dinner out.

We asked for our favourite commercial beer and ended up with a pint of the house brewed "Brissie Pils" which was fantastically clean and crisp.

Plenty of seating options although you end the venue down an alley through a bunch of smoking tables which might be a turn off for some on a busy night.

Menus looked good and we chose the chicken Parma, bangers and mash (special) and the platter of various sliders (4).

The winning dish was the sliders for flavour variation and value. The chicken Parma crumbling was a little overlooked so had a very subtle burnt flavour to it. The bangers were too smoked and that dominated the flavours. But all and all it was a good meal.

Value was OK - pints of home brews were circa $10 which is good. Slider were great value at early $20's I think and Parma and Bangers were just OK value at $30 each although having said that - the ingredient quality was right up there.

We will be back.

PS: Guys, grease the hinges of the door out from the kitchen - we initially say at that picnic table right out the front of it but had to move for all the creaking :-)
