Brew Nation

A tiny craft beer bar in the historic Sydney Building.

With 12 rotating taps and a glorious lineup of tinnies and bottles, Brew Nation can have as many as 70 different beers on offer at one time. We're talking puckering sours, smooth stouts, hearty ales, easy lagers, plus all the acronyms: IPAs, NEIPAs, WEIPAs, DIPAs and, yes, even a TIPA.

Grab a pint or a tasting paddle and settle in, beer geeks, for a beautiful journey of hops, malts and wild ferments. Brew Nation doesn't do food, but you can order in from one of the Verity Lane Market joints: Ramen Daddy, Pizza Artigiana, SuperBao, or the limited-time popup My Sabor, which is dishing up pan-Asian-Australian-Portuguese haute cuisine (sure, it's a mouthful, but one you'll want to try). Settle in and stay late.
