OPEN BAR

HK Magazine - - NIGHTLIFE -

The buzz: Hail­ing all the way from Fre­man­tle, Perth— from one sunny sea­side port to an­other—is Aussie craft brew­ery Lit­tle Crea­tures. Al­ready well es­tab­lished in Oz, the craft mi­cro­brew­ery-slash-restau­rant has just opened up in Kennedy Town, bring­ing fresh brews and all-day din­ing op­tions for big groups and fam­ily crowds.

The dé­cor: Set­ting up shop where a flour and sugar ware­house used to be, the mas­sive 6,000 sq. ft. space re­tains some of that in­dus­trial feel with im­pos­si­bly high loft ceil­ings, an open kitchen and bar, and ex­posed pipes. Be­hind the long bar is where the magic hap­pens: tow­er­ing metal drums where the malt mash is boiled, the hops are added, and the beer is fer­mented, fil­tered and even­tu­ally poured. The fur­ni­ture and dé­cor is com­fort­able, with brown leather booths and so­fas made for up to 10 din­ers per ta­ble in the back, and with enough space around the bar for beer geeks to mill around and learn more about the brews.

The drinks: Brewed on the premises, this is craft beer as fresh as you’re gonna get. Three classic Lit­tle Crea­tures beers are brewed on­site ($65-78/pint), in­clud­ing the sig­na­ture Pale Ale, and the brew­ery’s full range is avail­able by the bot­tle. Choose from the re­fresh­ing Pale Ale, a punchy Rogers’ am­ber ale, a light pil­sner, a hopped up IPA or sweet Or­chard Crush cider. Brewed es­pe­cially for Hong Kong is the Early Days pale ale, which tastes like a lighter, even more ses­sion­able ver­sion of the classic Pale Ale.
