So, this was a really, really, really fun place to hang out on a Sunday afternoon. And while during the Newtown Festival should mean it’s a special event, friends say it’s always pretty fun here.
They have different events. They invite in different folks to supply the food. They serve up a wide selection of their own beer that you can try, as well as a cider and gin and tonic.
I love that Sydney has a brewery like this where you can go to the home of some of the beers that they serve up in various bars around the city.
I didn’t have enough stomachs to try them all, but perhaps next time. I arrived early and it was quiet, just opening, and by the time we left, there was a line up to get in and it was heaving.
I like that they are a bit off the main streets of Newtown, hidden away, and I love the warehouse feel, vibe and decor.
This time they had the folks from Le Montreal Shack, and friends, including un vrai Québecois (a real person from Québec), told me that the poutine was good. I had mine with smoked pork belly and thought it was delicious: really smoky and rich and fatty, though someone else in our party didn’t like it, finding it like thick-cut bacon (which is sort of was).
