A world of beer
Beer lovers, if you haven't come across this place, put it in your diary today.

Centrally located at Federation Square, Beer Deluxe also has two other locations in Hawthorne and Albury, you'll find an ever-changing list of beers from all over the globe.

The best part? If you aren't sure what to try, order a tasting paddle with a variety of options allowing you to sample four different brews. It also comes with a side of peanuts too. Not sure what to choose? That's ok too, the bartenders are great at choosing for you and it'll only cost you $16.

We left our beer choices in the hands of the very savvy bartenders who brought us a range of beers from sweet to stout.

Now to be fair, I'm not a beer lover; never drink it. I'm a cider gal. So admittedly I tried my selection with a bit of trepidation. And to be fair, I think I fared rather well. A good mix of varied flavours and if I were a beer lover, no doubt I would've been in heaven with the choice. That said though, there's also a huge range of ciders, even alcoholic ginger beer to keep the non beer folks very happy.

Throughout the week you'll also find plenty of food specials including burger nights, pizza nights and more. We sussed out the pizza situation and were pleasantly surprised by the gourmet offerings.

Our choice? A prosciutto, fig and goats curd pizza that definitely hit the spot.

We also tried out s few of the dishes on the bar food menu including the peking duck pancakes as well as the soft shelled tacos with braised chicken and lime mayo.

It's a great environment for catching up with mates, especially if your the type whose keen on ordering a variety of dishes or even a few pizzas and sharing plates.

It's central, easy to get to and from via public transport (literally across the street from Flinders St Station) and offers such a wide menu range there's certainly something for everyone.
