BentSpoke Brewing Co

Microbrewery in Canberra

With 16 excellent beers and ciders on tap, BentSpoke is one of Australia's best craft brewers. Sit at the bike-themed bar or relax outside and kick things off with a tasting tray of four beers ($16). Our favourite is the Barley Griffin Ale, subtly tinged with a spicy Belgian yeast. Good pub food, too.

These days you can get cans (featuring the tear-off top) of their beer in most local bottle shops, but it's still worth drinking the beverage where it is brewed for a few surprises on tap.
