St Kilda's Local Taphouse is a Carlisle Street institution and must-visit location for draught lovers — its 19 rotating taps go through more than 400 different beers a year.

And it's no surprise, considering its owners are Stomping Ground Brewing Co.'s Steve Jeffares and Guy Greenstone, who are also the creators of the GABS craft beer festival.

Whatever it's tapping, there's no better place to enjoy it than by the outdoor log fire, which warms up the Taphouse's spacious rooftop beer garden in winter. There's also a second indoor fireplace downstairs for when the weather turns sour.

And, to top it off, regular comedy nights and plenty of top-notch pub eats are also on the docket at this European-style tavern.
