The Local Taphouse: Beer Tasting Paddle, Darlinghurst (31 Oct 2009)

122 Flinders Street, Darlinghurst NSW 2010
(Corner of South Dowling and Flinders)

Beer Degustation

When confronted with too many choices I'm often wanting to try a bit of everything on a menu so a beer tasting paddle is a great way to try a selection of beers on offer at The Local Taphouse. I was thinking of just choosing the five most expensive beers but I decided to let the bar staff decide which ones to try and also place them in the order of drinking. It's a little scary picking up the paddle for the first time and manoeuvring your way back to your table through a busy crowd, but it's all part of the fun of drinking. I find this pub nice and cosy with it's vintage furniture and it's a nice place to sit down and chat over a drink earlier in the night before it gets too busy.
