Time Out Melbourne

The Great Britain is a uniter of all. It’s a champion of indie bands, possessor of a massive split-level beer garden, fireplace and pinball machine. Not to mention purveyor of craft beers and Piss. Yeah, you heard us. They made their own lager (Piss) so they didn’t have to serve big company beers. Slightly scuffed, the pub’s got the feel of a well-worn loafer. Wednesday is open-mic night if you reckon you’ve got some musical skills. If not, claim an overstuffed couch, sit back and get a pizza from across the road delivered direct to your seat. By the way, that’s not Chairman Mao, nor George from Seinfeld pictured above the door. It’s that political hero of British India, Doctor Ambedkar.
