Crawls are generally walkable. Kept to a maximum of 7 locations. Where the distance to the next location is greater than 15min, I’d suggest taking a roadie or uber/cab.
The great thing about Australia’s growth in to the craft beer scene is there are more and more places putting on great beer to drink. Most places will have at least some alternative to Tooheys, VB, Carlton and XXXX. Sydney houses some great craft beer bars but where the aforementioned beer is frowned upon. This pub crawl will cover some of the city’s finest, which will you see you crawl around the CBD and see all the fabulous sights that Sydney has to offer – from the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Darling Harbour and The Rocks. This is a great sightseeing, craft beer pub crawl.

Great neighbourhood craft beer bar with 31 speciality taps of craft beer. Cosy inside with tables for groups or seating at the bar. There’s few TVs for sport and giant taxidermy animal heads adorn the walls. There is a small pokies room and seating outside on the footpath for the filthy smokers. The food is supplied by the burger place Ze Pickle that is across … Continue reading The Keg & Brew in Surry Hills
Quaint little pub with a cozy and friendly atmosphere for after work drinks. Over 20 taps across the different sides of the centre bar but all serving the same 6 beers. No real craft option and closest being 150 Lashes or what I grabbed while there, Furphy Refreshing Ale. Standard pub menu, a TAB and pokies room. Out back looks like would have a DJ … Continue reading New Hampton Hotel in Kings Cross
A massive 5 level establishment that sits on the corner has you enter the Cross. Down stairs has live music and major sporting events on the screens and nine taps of standard pub beers. (Carlton, Tooheys, Pure Blonde) Food is a small selection of standard pub food. Burgers, Steak, Schnitty and the like. On my visit I had the Panhead Supercharger APA. Good for Friday … Continue reading Kings Cross Hotel in Kings Cross
Long time local watering hole, Cooper’s is a good old fashion pub in the heart of Newtown. There’s a small beer garden, small TAB for betting on the ponies. TVs with sport. A small stare for a cover band on a Friday night and standard beer, cocktail, pub food range. 14 taps of mostly macro brewery beers but I did manage to have Willie The … Continue reading Cooper’s Hotel in Newtown
Another great little old pub in Woolloomooloo. A throwback to the old fashioned local. Ten beers on tap including a few craft options. Old beer signs litter the walls of the front bar. Out back has a seating area for casual get together and food through the restaurant. On my visit I had the magnificent Modus Operandi Sonic Prayer IPA.

This gorgeous little suburban pub tucked away at the back of Kings Cross and Woolloomooloo is a great spot for a beer. Small bar area and an small upstairs dining area with a small but reasonably priced menu, the focal point of this pub is the next door independent theatre which regularly holds local plays for up to 40-50 people. 12 rotating craft beer taps, … Continue reading The Old Fitzroy in Woolloomooloo
Situated on the corner of Kent and Bathurst streets with 9 taps, 3 dedicated to rotating craft beers. Typical pub feel with standard pub food and a pokies room for a slap.
