Hamilton’s answer to the growing request for specialty beer, Craft is a friendly bar offering plenty of brews on tap from all over the globe. A rotating selection of fifteen beers take the stage at this local joint and customers are treated to friendly banter from the bartenders, who are knowledgeable about brews on offer and can assist those new to the craft scene. Perch inside at the shared high tables, or sit street-side where a lounging area catches the last of the day’s sun.
Big on the wood theme, there’s recycled timber slabs across the ceiling and pizza comes out served on mini pallets. Three choices of platters are all the encouragement you need to bring some friends to the party, while Wednesdays see the popular quiz night roar into action. Test your general and not so general knowledge in a fun, socially competitive atmosphere where getting heckled by the MC is a frequent occurrence.
