The Keg and Brew’s Craftbeer selection, and its impressive 33 beer taps is why you’d head in. You can spend the arvo here and itd be a beery good time and I think you’d be hard pressed to finish all the beers on tap. There’s also a large selection of pub grub designed to soak up the beers and there’s both shared plated styled eats and stand alones like burgers.
