    Great vibe, good beers, especially good at Happy Hour :-) This place advertised food, however there was none. May have misread the info, so the 3 / 5 for food reflects this.

    We celebrated my girlfriend's birthday here and it was nothing short of perfect. The venue, the ambience, and the drinks were fantastic. Grant did an incredible job of making us feel welcome and made the process of booking, to the actual event go smoothly. Whether it's a fun night of drinks with your pals or a catch up with an old friend, Nice Guys is the spot!!

    So glad we made the journey to Nice Guys. It was so beautiful. Comfortable seating, stunning environment and the noise level was perfect! Fun music but not so loud that you could actually hear each other perfectly. Will do back again and again.

    Had the most lovely time at Nice Guys, definitely a hidden gem. Very lowkey brewery with a warm atmosphere and great service. Great drinks too! I had a large group and they were incredibly accommodating and flexible to all our needs. They don’t have a kitchen yet but they kindly let us bring in our own food. Looking forward to revisiting (-:

    Beer was tasty but had no idea there was food. Didn’t receive much direction upon arrival for ordering etc and was quite rudely told to leave as we had passed our allotted time limit. I’d be back to try it again because the West Coast IPA was delicious.
    Nice Guys Brewery & BarResponded on 2 August 2021
    Thanks for your feedback, it is important to us. Like many hospitality venues we are short-staffed at the moment but are currently hiring so fingers crossed. You should have been told about ordering on arrival so not sure why that didn't happen this occasion. We will work on our 'bedside manner' regarding turn times because it should not come across as rude. I am glad you will be back and I think you will have a better experience next time. Cheers Grant

    Place was advertised as dog friendly on Concrete Playground, but this was apparently not the case. Didn’t hang around to try the food or beer, but the place looked nice.
    Nice Guys Brewery & BarResponded on 5 July 2021
    Hi Richard, sorry we didn't meet your expectations. Please understand we did not write the review article and have previously notified them our fireplace is not currently operational. Our beer garden is dog friendly as many local dogs can attest but we are unable to host dogs inside due to the food safety code enforced by council. We were hoping to completed works on the fireplace in June but lockdowns & reduced capacity delayed this. It is a priority and hopefully can fire it up soon. Cheers

    Nice Guys was the perfect venue for a colleague’s farewell party on Friday night. There were 25 of us and feedback has been fantastic. The unique bar offers a casual, warm and welcoming ambience. Grant and his staff provided friendly and knowledgeable service and the wide range of superbly crafted beers meant that there were plenty of styles to explore and enjoy. There were good options for non-beer drinkers too. NB: there is no kitchen so Grant allowed us to bring in finger food for our guests. Grant and team made it a breeze to organise the event. The website contains helpful information about the beers on tap and how to get there by public transport. Grant also provided advice on parking nearby which I could forward to guests. I will definitely go back with my husband and friends!

    Owner was rude and seemed to be annoyed by us all night. Rolling his eyes saying “come on mate!” when our injured friend had to use his knee scooter to the toilet and told us not to steal the ashtrays(?!) from the tables. “Nice guys” Lol Other staff member wasn’t particularly friendly either. Really nice, aesthetically pleasing venue but wouldn’t go again.

    Hi guys, Thanks for coming in and I am so sorry that you felt unwelcome because you certainly were very welcome. I thought you were a great group which is why I offered to stay open after our normal close for you. We do strive to be 'Nice Guys' so we will take your comments on board. Cheers, Grant
