Best Beer Pub and Bottle Shop in Canberra

Mess 12 June 2008 44

In continuing a Riot-Act tradition of rating the best (and worst) our fair city has to offer, I was wondering where are the best beer pubs and bottle shops in Canberra? My vote goes to Debacle for the best beer pub (60-odd beers on offer), and I would say somewhere like First Choice Liquor in Phillip for the best selection of beers in Canberra. Any thoughts rioters?

just to keep you posted - our restaurant and bar at the brewery in kembla street should only be a couple of weeks away from opening its doors *touches wood*

in terms of other venues for zierholz around canberra i keep knocking on doors and trying believe me... i will be meeting with the canberra southern cross clubs and yacht club manager in a couple of days and hopefully with the labor clubs over the weekend which might (finally) put us northside as well.

you can always help out by nagging for zierholz at your local and letting me know if you find places that aren't tied to tooheys or carlton!

my own vote for best pub would of course have to go to the wig and pen as richard does a terrific job of creating new and interesting brews. oh that and Matt S's garage...

It is the only place I know where I have to get assistance to collect a trailer from - because guaranteed ill be a little bit "Happier" when ever I leave :)

debacle is severely overpriced and overrated.... their beers aren't THAT good and it's not that great a place - too much wood can't hear anyone speak so it's not comfortable. surprisingly, cook shops has a wide variety of international beers you can't seemingly get anywhere else, whether it's the best, i couldn't say. best bet? travel the world and drink the beer from the source.

Although I hear they're in the process of moving to bigger premises at the moment, anyone heard any rumours about where that might be?[/quote]

All I know is... they're closed at the moment (very sad!). The online whitepages listing still shows the same old address but they're not there any more. Nor is there a sign saying where they are moving to.[/quote]

Got an email from them last night saying that they have opened in the Fyshwick Markets where the nursery used to be. They had stopped selling Zierholz a few months ago but perhaps they will restart now that they are closer to the source.
