where to drink (part 1)

My decisions on where to drink are based on my constant search for new stuff. I have an understanding wife who enjoys a glass of good red who is happy to assist me on my adventures. These places in Sydney are well worth visiting

Bloodwood

416 King Street, Newtown, NSW 2042 – (02) 9557 7699

Bloodwood has the first spot on my list because it offers the best of both worlds – extreme beers and exciting wines. Sommelier Gabrielle Webster has great taste and has something new every time you visit, Australian and International biodynamic / organic wines or bottled beers from the likes of Epic and Mikkeller. Service is great, the staff are all well informed and clearly enjoy learning about the great booze on offer. I know some beery people think that it’s expensive, I say the products and service represent great value. As a Scotsman I’m an expert on this kind of thing. The food is well worth staying for if you want dinner or a good long lunch

The Local Taphouse

122 Flinders Street, Darlinghurst, NSW 2010 – (02) 9360 0088

Local TaphouseThe best list of draft beer in Sydney with 20 constantly rotating taps makes the Taphouse unmissable for good beer lovers. I’ve been introduced to countless new breweries at the Taphouse and met many of the brewers. The rooftop garden is perfect in summer. The wine list is brief but more interesting than most pubs and they’ve just introduced a wide range of whisky. The rooftop garden is perfect in summer. The monthly Ale Stars session is a must attend event, hosted by Darren ‘Doc’ Robinson from Doctors Orders Brewing
