FEATURING 33 DIFFERENT BEERS & CIDERS
The Keg & Brew features what is probably the highest number of beers available per meter of floor space in the whole of Australia and is a Best Beer List nominee in Time Out’s 2016 Pub Awards. Our team sources local beers and ciders from the latest local craft beer start ups, tapping everything from interesting seasonal and experimental brews to tried and tested craft beer favourites. If your pallet is more on the traditional side there’s still a bank of golden oldies from CUB including VB and Resch’s. The venue also features traditional hand pumped ales on tap. As a Surry Hills pub serving bourbons, beer and bites our mission is simple:
“The Keg & Brew is all about the love of good beer. We want to give people a chance to try the excellent new brewers of Australia, while also offering the old classics, some tasty bourbon and honest pub food at a great price”.
TRADITIONAL HAND PUMPED BEER
Traditional hand pumped ale is served at a cool cellar temperature of around 8-10 degrees and features a soft carbonation from the “live” yeasts in the beer. Beer served under hand pumped conditions show greater complexity in flavour and a higher degree of drinkability. Sample our finest craft beers from around the world.
EVERY BOURBON IS A WHISKEY, BUT NOT ALL WHISKEYS ARE BOURBON
A true Bourbon, as defined by the US federal trade regulations must be made in the U.S.A. from a grain mash made up of at least 51 percent corn. It must be distilled at a maximum strength of 160 proof, bottled at least 80 proof, and aged in new charred oak barrels at no more than 125 proof. The Keg & Brew features a growing list of 30 different bourbons and Tennesse Whiskeys. Here, bourbon is served five ways, Neat, on ice, or as one of three traditional Bourbon cocktails.
