Tried this venue on a recent trip to Melbourne. A few minutes by tram gets you outside the door.

Double fronted bar, one one half, with red leather couches down one side, and tables and stools on other. Doesn't sound much from these words but is really quite appealing from a 'bar' view rather than pub. Did not enter the other half. Beer garden is small.

I recall 12 or so taps, may be more. Good range of locals, a couple of Ferals, a Brewdog Hardcore which went down well. Did not check bottle list.

Prices seem to be $10-ish for a 'glass' depending on ABV - seems to be the same as most places. Guys behind bar were happy to either talk chit-chat or talk serious beer. Also talk Melbourne vs Sydney scene which was quite funny. No Hipsters to be seen :-)

Really good place, could have stayed longer, but we had to eat and chose to continue our travels.
