They say the best thing out of Sydney is the road to Melbourne, and anyone who has enjoyed the fantastic drinking culture of Sydney’s southern sister would be inclined to agree.
Lucky for Sydneysiders, Melbourne’s best is filtering to the top and making the long journey north to our benefit.
One of the newest Melburnian exports is the Local Taphouse. This boutique beer hall serves a stack of truly fantastic Beers from the tap. $15 $13 gets you a six beer tasting platter and a bloody good time.
The taphouse also runs a blog, just to keep you up to date with all things cold, bubbly and amber coloured.
The food looks good, and if my glowing endorsement isn’t enough, get a load of what is currently on tap:
