Last night I went to Redoak Beer Cafe here in Sydney. There are many things to like about the place, but my favourite is the English style bitter that they serve.

Australia has a great, regional, beer culture with lots of different styles and varieties to try. But one thing that they lack, and I have been missing, are the bitters from back home. I was very pleased to stumble across one!

I can't quite decide how to describe Redoak's operation. Checking their website they seem to only have one bar / restaurant and I don't recall seeing their beers in any other pubs. But they have such a wide selection brewed under the Redoak label, I can't believe they are all for the one bar. I'll have to stay on the look out to see if I can see them on sale somewhere else.

Whenever I've got a yearning for home or fancy a European style beer, I'll be making a pilgrimage here. Their tasting platters of food and beer look pretty good too.

  1. one bar Ritchie, not found on tap anywhere else, although you can buy their stubbies at respectable bottlo's.

    that what makes it refreshingly special, quality + scarcity.
