There has been a renovation since AHB's Balmain pub crawl, & it was long overdue. This is now one of the better pubs on the Balmain peninsular. Great food & the beer menu is impressive including Fat Yak, Little Creatures Bright Ale, White Rabbit & Coopers Pale Ale.
Look out for their upcoming beer lunches.

I was at this pub yesterday before wandering off to watch the Tigers game. Little Creatures Pale & Pils, White Rabbit Dark & White, Vale Ale & Lager, Guinness (just for St. Pats day they reckon), a Cider, a Ginger Beer & some Austrian Lager I didn't bother paying attention to. Best beer on tap was the Pacific Ale from Stone & Wood, I thought I was sitting in Byron it tasted so fresh! * NO NEW * * NO VB *

Pizzas are pretty good, I will be returning for the Pie & Porter combo.

If the hand-pumped Ale makes a comeback I might look at moving back to the peninsula!

Time for a trip to Sydney again, I think. Haven't been down for 2 years. Last time I was in Balmain was before my brewing days so my lunch consisted of a few schooners of Reschs Draught at the Unity Hall and a pie in the little park in front of Woolies listening to a loony standing on the corner preaching to the passing traffic about the impending end of the world.
Love Balmain - got a ticket in the Boystown draw for a house at Birchgrove. :icon_cheers:

Actually Pinchgut is more than a job, & the BLK PLZ is more than just a dark lager ;), even the Vale guys were getting stuck in when we were there for lunch today.
Riverview Pizza's are awesome, actually the kitchen at The Riv is a big step up from the usual pub grub you get around Sydney.

Catch ya
James
