Meet Southbank's new craft beer bar

[Sponsored] Imagine a riverside terrace house with a microbrewery out the back and you'll get an idea of what Hopscotch is all about. This Southbank promenade brew bar is all about tapping tasty beers, with more than 30 different options on tap. Many come from Hopscotch's own in-house microbrewery, which they've nicknamed Frank.

Not sure where to start? Try a tasting paddle for just $10 or have a chat to your bartender and they can give you a hopping hand through the selection process. On the food front, it's all about snacks that go well with a beer in hand: bao buns, burgers, falafels and tacos.

Order Hopscotch's signature dish, which is a beer can chicken coated in Alabama slammer sauce, with sides of chipotle mac‘n’cheese, green salad, spicy slaw, cornbread and maple butter, pickles and to top it all off, beer gravy.

Not that into beer? They've also got DIY cocktail kits, frosé, tapped cocktails and spiked slushies. Add in DJs, live art and beergustations and you've got a one-stop party, snack and beer stop.
