Singing the King Street Brews at Young Henry’s
While these guys have only been a part of the Newtown scene since 2012, they have quickly become a bit of a local institution, set-up on the same site as the craft brewery, on a backstreet off bustling Enmore Rd.
It’s a favourite place for us to spend a weekend afternoon because it’s always got a great unpretentious crowd, the bartenders are friendly, and most-importantly the beer is always good. The bar is set-up within the brewery itself, with the homey aesthetic of shipping container meets grandma’s lounge-room, meets your mate’s garage; and its usually pretty busy on the weekends.
Visiting at the right time will mean you can see the brewers at work with all that shiny stainless steel in the back room, and usually you can try something new and seasonal, like the delicious coffee and agave Yeastie Boys collaboration.
Tasting paddles are available for those that aren’t familiar with the core Young Henry’s brews and want to try them all at once, a good option for first time visits. There is usually a food truck parked outside to cater for the peckish, and if you want to share the love you can get a refillable take-away growler bottle filled with your favorite beer to take home for your friends.
Only open until 7pm, it’s a great place to start off your night, or for those enjoying a lazy afternoon with friends.
Another great craft beer option in Sydney is the Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst.
