If you visit Australia without trying some beers, you are missing a trick. And this hip beer bar is the single best place to sup a few pots (Melbourne’s ladylike answer to the half) – or upgrade to the $5 pint on Wednesday, an occasion which brings hipsters, students and the self-employed out in their masses.
Funky décor, from the Astroturf, crates and kegs in the smoking area out back, through to the chandeliers, hide throws and kitsch in the bar area out front, sets the scene for a very modern bar.
An innovative vacuum system, more often used for storing wine, enables Biero to serve its impressive selection of bottled beers by the glass. The selection of cask brews changes every few days, with a focus on local craft brewers, while the hundreds of different brews span almost every style available.
As a place to settle down with an ale and get to grips with the finer points of malt and hops, perhaps with some help from the knowledgeable, passionate staff, Biero takes some beating.
