“Showed up for America Night”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Made an appearance here after hearing from some beer folks that it was the place to go. Upon arriving we were asked for a gold coin donation, for...AMERICA NIGHT, haha, this was going to be funny. It was still a little early but the bar was already decently filled. On tap they had all US beers, mostly from Cali but some from other states. I had hoped when I came that I would get a chance to try some AU craft beers but it wasn't meant to be here. Grabbed an IPA, something from Green Flash. We were hungry but the only thing on the menu was all "American"; bbq wings, hamburger, hot dog, etc. we grabbed wings and a hamburger (no cheese though, don’t they know us Americans like cheese?!). The wings were mediocre as was the burger but it filled us up. I grabbed another beer, a stout this time. Overall, the bar was pretty cool and you could tell as the night went on that this was a popular bar that seemed to attract the craft beer fans. I’d go back again if I was in town but would shoot to go during the day when I can sit back, relax, and enjoy some beers. **** Go, go, GO to the bottleshop too as I saw beers there that I saw no where else in AU, picked up several Cantillons. Prices were high but probably to be expected given the current beer scene there.
