A long-standing south-coast NSW brewery has made the move to Sydney, opening a sibling location to its Jervis Bay home. Flamin Galah Brewing Co has built a cult following since opening back in 2018 thanks to its award-winning XPAs, pale ales and sours, cementing its sunny regional brewery as a must-visit stop on a trip south fo Sydney. Now, it's brought its range of craft beers to Broadway with an exciting new taproom.

Flamin Galah has taken over the old Hotel Broadway building between Broadway and Shepherd Street. Inside, the space has been transformed with plenty of Millennial (or alternatively, galah) pink furniture, retro light fittings and a neon sign proclaiming Flamin Good Beer. Most importantly, you'll find a line of taps pouring the full range of Flamin Galah brews, including a Chippo Lager dedicated to the new digs.

While the beers are the stars of this show, there are plenty of supporting characters. Wine, cider, ginger beer, seltzers and cocktails round out the drinks offerings. If you're not a fan of the hops, opt for the Blushing Galah which combines Flamin Galah vodka, watermelon liqueur, triple sec, lime and fresh watermelon; or the Yuzu Gin Gimlet for something a little more citrus-foward.

The theme running through the food is crowd-pleasers. There are sets of cheeseburger sliders or Chippo Lager-battered fish tacos, crispy chicken bao, pulled beef nachos, fried chicken tenders, tangy barbecue wings and dumplings (pork and chive, prawn or vegetarian).

And, there are also plenty of enticing deals hoping to lure you in to sample some of the brewery's offerings. There are daily happy hour deals available 4–6pm Monday–Thursday including $12 cocktails, and $20 jugs of beer on Tuesdays. On Thursdays you can score a beer and burger special, and drag queen Peaches Rosé comes in on Wednesday nights to run trivia.

Flamin Galah's Sydney brewpub is located at 166–170 Broadway, Chippendale. It's open 12–10pm Sunday–Tuesday, 12pm–12am Wednesday–Saturday.
