A neon cassette above the entrance gives away Mixtape Brewing, a clandestine little brewery and bar on the inner west ale trail, closing the gap between The Grifter and Sauce breweries.

Beyond the roller door, you’ll be met with an old arcade machine, a 1960s Nick Scali lounge suite and a tiled bar dead ahead pouring a who’s who of indie craft beer from 18 taps. To the right is a small, 300-litre brewery, which pumps out small-batch beers for the bar.

When Broadsheet visited, the tap list was heavy on Hop Nation, Kaiju and Blackman’s breweries from Victoria, alongside beer and seltzer by Wayward in Camperdown. You can also grab rare, imported European beers and other craft brews from the fridge to take away.

There 50-strong list of wines features mainly natural styles with a focus on skin-contact, plus a few classic varietals for good measure. Gin by Four Pillars is also on hand for a crisp G&T, plus an ever-growing collection whisky collection. What you won’t find (or need, really) are cocktails.

To help soak up the above, the on-site kitchen serves a rotating menu of drinking food’s greatest hits: kimchi dumplings, buffalo chicken wings, fries and pizzas including margherita, chilli-prawn and vegetarian numbers. For dessert, it might be a couple of scoops of vanilla ice-cream with Milo.
