The Taphouse, formerly The Local Taphouse, is an established good beer venue in Sydney.
The Taphouse was possibly once Sydney’s craft beer epicentre. There are plenty of other pubs and bars vying for that title now and good beer is far more common than it was when The Local Taphouse first started putting beer at the heart of its offering.
The previous owners are the people behind the famous St. Kilda pub of the same name, as well as GABS festival which first arrived in Sydney in 2015.
Old School Pub Charm
The pub has since changed ownership but good beer is still at its core. It’s the kind of place that retains an old school pub charm and welcomes a varied clientele.
With tiled walls and rough paintwork on the outside it looks like the kind of pub that a few years ago you’d cross the street to avoid. Now, with a cosy downstairs bar and a bright rooftop terrace, it’s a beloved pub in a city where pub culture seems as strong as ever before.
The Taphouse’s varied offering means its a pub that’s ideal for a Sunday roast, pre-footy drinks or a leisurely tasting paddle. The staff are set up to cater for each of these interests and are certainly well-placed to make beer recommendations based on your tastes and preferences.
Focus On Good Beer
For visitors to this website, the sort of people who are seeking out good beer venues, The Taphouse will show its best side during tap takeovers, its Ale Stars series of brewers’ talks or during Sydney Beer Week where events are frequent and varied.
The Taphouse continues to deliver on its reputation as a good beer pub. It’s a reputation, that even with a change of ownership, they’ve forged for themselves through years of great work and commitment to the Sydney beer scene.
The Taphouse does what the very best pubs do. It just exists.
It exists as a venue that provides comfort and good beer. It’s a kind of “third place”, outside of home and work. As always with Sydney’s popular beer venues, it’s worth checking The Taphouse out on Now Tapped! to see what they’re currently pouring.
