Extensive craft beer and good service with a funky vibe
May 2021 • Friends
Popped in for a couple Of cheeky beers. A good selection of beers on tap (some out front and stouts/dark out back so go look!) also a huge selection of beers in can for purchase or takeaway. Very friendly and nice staff and fun and funky blues tunes out the front with a more modern vibe out the back. If you like beer well worth the check...

Great atmosphere. Good range of beers plus a nice selection of spirits and wine. Large area out the back if you prefer a bit more space. Food was delicious. Highly recommended

Packed on a Monday
Apr. 2021 • Couples
A busy place with a good range of craft beers and other drinks. They have blackboard with the current offerings and plenty of spots to sit. The burgers were really tasty as were the chicken wings which were crispy with a tangy sauce. This was the best bar we found in town.

Great atmosphere and fabulous range of craft beers.
Apr. 2021
We attended this haven of craft beers early on a Friday evening. The front bar was very busy, so we explored further and discovered the other areas and rear bar. There was a good range of local beers on tap, as well as some from further afield. The bar staff were helpful and knowledgeable. It should be noted that the range of beers is different in the two bars. I particularly enjoyed the Brown chocolate ale and NEIPA. Although we were booked to eat out later, I noticed a good range of bar snacks and meals were being served. It was busy but social distancing was apparent with the seating being well spaced.

Very rude bartender!
Feb. 2021
Besides the one rude bartender who embarrass you in front of multiple people this also didn’t just happen to me but had to two other friends too! But the ciders on tap and the beer bottles on the wall are pretty cool.

Dont question the (rude) bar staff - If so prepare to be mocked and humiliated
Jan. 2021
Read the reviews and thought we would drop in for a few beers before starting a night out in Launceston on our 3rd day visiting in town.

Ordered a Beer and G&T, barmaid was dis-engaged and generally uninterested when serving. When I received my beer it didn't taste as I expected but it was still pleasant so drank away.

Asked for "The same again" and mentioned the beer name. Barmaid began pouring and I (stupidly) said "Excuse me, I think I ordered the " at which point the barman started laughing, grabbed a pen and chalked up a mark and proudly announced to anyone who cared to listen "The Taps don't line up with the beers" with a smug look on his face.

After feeling a little sheepish I apologized for my indiscretion. You can imagine my predicament when I tasted my 2nd beer it was different from the last one. Not wanting to be publicly humiliated or chastised again I had another few sips.

Then I said to the barman "Hey, I get that the taps don't line up but this beer is different to the last one I ordered (when I said "Same again")". At that point the disinterested barmaid piped up that she had in fact poured the wrong beer earlier.

So maybe the taps should line up to help the barstaff?

All the barman did was proceed to take the piss further and mock me instead of offering to switch the beer out and put things back to right. When challenged he advised not to argue with the barman.

So we finished our drinks and walked out. +1 for Launceston tourism pal.

My top recommendation in Launceston.
Excellent selection of rotating taps. A good balance of delicious and experimental canned brews in the fridge. Plenty of local products.
🍎 For the cider-aficionado there’s plenty to wet your whistle here too.
You can drop in for a beer or spend hours tasting new drops. A great business model and the event space looks ace too.
A short walk from the town. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful on all their wares.

A real treat for beer monsters!
Oct. 2019
I'd visited this place in 2019 and was so happy to bring my family here to show them what the fuss was about. A great place for sampling a range of draft and bottled craft beers. This place is usually busy and also does bar food. We came her twice during our brief visit to Launceston and still had many beers left to try when we left. The beers are well kept, and the staff know their stuff. There are other drinks available in case your friends are not as passionate about their ale.
