The Taste of Oz
If you're a beer drinker (or drinker in general), you'll fit right in down under. Here is a pretty well-rounded assortment of brews - from vintage Resch's to the popular low carb Super Dry and Pure Blonde to the staples VB and Carlton. Bluetongue is a brewery located in NSW's wine country, Hunter Valley, and serves as a nice addition to your wine tasting itinerary. Down on the end are a variety of Schwartz beers. Dr. Schwartz owns this hotel, The Sebel Surry Hills, as well as a handful of others. The Macquarie Hotel is located just down the street and is where these ales are brewed. As a matter of fact, I believe it has been renamed since I've been there The Schwartz Brewery Hotel. Not only can you visit where the beer is made, but they have a great happy hour - $3 schooners - and a live music venue, The Mac. Go to the Sebel Surry Hills for a killer lunch special. Each week there are three meals to choose from (the steak sandwich is always on the menu due to its demand). Your choice plus a schooner of beer or a glass of wine for $10! Hard to beat in Sydney.
The suburb of Surry Hills was one of my favorites in Sydney. The pub culture alone makes it an eventful place to walk around and explore.
