We booked a table for 10 and ended up having the entire back section to ourselves. Thanks heaps to Matty for his hospitality. A top night playing video games, darts and jenga. Great beer. Good times. Highly recommend.

Great atmosphere and good brew. We had a Friday arvo session after work and the location was perfect. We could easily stagger back to the station.
