Heavily influenced by European taverns of the 1930s, The Local Taphouse is a hub for beer specialists and those with a taste for variety in their pint. The beauty of The Local Taphouse is that it is independent of any of the large beer brands.

While you may not recognise many of the beers on the regularly changing taps – let alone the bottled varieties lining the shelves – manager Justin Joiner’s attitude towards beer means his staff are very well versed when it comes to the stuff. Within no time, they’ll talk you though the drinks menu in detail and have you sipping everything from pilsner to stout, hefferveisen and larger. They encourage you to get out of your beer comfort zone and guide you into new realms. It’s a place that brings together the novices and the experts in a friendly environment.

The two-storey bar is home to an interior that resembles an old English reading room, with dark wooden floors and walls punctuated by the numerous beer taps behind the bar. The leather couches and low-slung dark green lamps create a cosy, relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Wander upstairs and you will find the dining area, as well as a rooftop courtyard with wooden decking and tables.

The food menu continues their fondness for beer, with head chef Richard Smith designing a menu with dishes that are all matched with specific brews.

With a keen attitude towards local identity, world-class quality and sharing knowledge, The Local Taphouse’s intention is to help grow the beer-loving community by helping their customers discover more of the great beers Australia and the world have to offer.
