The Anzac SpecTAPular beerfest is on in both venues from midday on Sunday April 25th. Entry is gold coin (which we donate to Legacy's Raise A Glass campaign). There will be two up, live entertainment and a themed menu. In St Kilda, we will be showing the Essendon v Collingwood game on the Big Screen too.

We hope to see you there!


  1. You mean Sunday the 25th right? Either way I can't wait

  2. Cheers for that.. All fixed now!

  3. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!! Renaissance!!!! Porter is awesome, but nothing beats their MPA (Marlborough Pale Ale). Rakau hops and 8+ abv. Tastes like pumpkin pie.

    Twisted hop is hand pump. Does this mean the Taphouse is getting a pump? Please?

  4. We will gravity pour the Twisted Hop beers from a makeshift setup on the bar..

    There are plans for a handpump(s) but we want to make sure it's done just right. Patience is a virtue :-)

  5. Are kids allowed in any part of your Sydney pub?

  6. Kids are allowed in all areas of the pub as long as they're accompanied by a responsible adult. The only time we'd advise against is it very busy times, usually Friday or Saturdays from evenings onwards.

  7. Sounds great. Is there food available tomorrow, also? Thanks.
