A Sydney Beer Crawl

My wife is working in Sydney so I inadvertently ended up on a solo beer crawl last Tuesday. I'd been to most of the bars/hotels before but I had to be doubly sure of what I thought!

I started at the Lowenbrau Keller in the Rocks (for a meeting). I didn't know it had been there in some form since about 1971... Instead of then going home (Kel wasn't getting home until late), I then moved on to the Lord Nelson (great atmosphere there. I could have stayed there all night), the Australian Hotel before checking out the Belgian Beer Cafe and then the Bavarian Beer Cafe in York Street. Finally, I ended up at Redoak shooting the breeze with co-owner Janet until I went home.

There's other beer-friendly bars in Sydney I'd still like to try but it wasn't a bad effort.

  1. You pretty much did the best ones- just the Pumphouse (nr the Entertainment Ctre) which i haven't been too and The Australian Heritage Hotel which is real close to the Lord Nelson.
    I'm coming to Melbourne in Sept. so hope fully I can check out yr bar, sounds great and i'll keep an eye on yr blog in the meantime.
