Time Out Melbourne Pub Awards

Time Out Pub Awards 2017: all the fun, all the winners

The Time Out Pub Awards celebrate everything we love about our public houses, from after work bevs that get us through the week, to hearty meals by the fire place that make winter a lot more inviting. Supporting Melbourne’s pubs has never been more vital, with the recent loss of some old favourites there has never been a better excuse to head to your local.

The awards were hosted by craft beer mecca Forester’s Hall, Collingwood. With 42 beers on tap, and fresh from a re-design earlier in the year, the place could not be more fitting for a salute to the best. Beverage sponsors on the night were from Estate Wines, The Hills Cider, and brews by Yenda Beer.

And the winners are….
