Try before you buy from the extensive range at this Collingwood beer bar and bottle shop.
Beermash is not your standard grog shop. The industrial-style space has exposed brick walls and 20 taps built into the wall behind the counter. Although owner Kieran Hennessy and partner Shayne Dixon have built the shop around take-home 'growlers' and 'squealers' (refillable bottles of 1.89 litres and 950 millilitres, respectively), there's never any shortage of people taking advantage of the place's limited tables and stools. Don't be put off if you're not a beer connoisseur, either — there's also plenty of craft wine, cider and even some kombucha.
