The nominees are...
This brick-and-red banquette-filled cavern has become a second home for Melbourne's self-proclaimed brew geeks.
The sister venue to Hawthorn's craft beer haunt, with a wide selection of burgers and brews and an expansive beer garden.
A traditional pub experience as well as a great craft beer bar, it has a huge tap beer list.
Sean Donovan has taken over the Town Hall Hotel and injected a rugged menu with steak as its bloody (or medium rare) beating heart.
It has a cute rooftop, boardgames and books above the fireplace, and plenty of craft beer by the bottle – it's where you'd want to spend your last Sunday.
This modern and classy hotel with an attached bottle shop has a lengthy menu, meat tray raffle on Friday, and $19 aged porterhouse on Thursdays.
This historic Carlton pub has up-to-the-minute brews and a tight and tasty menu courtesy of chef Lachlan Cameron.
One of Melbourne's great classic pubs doesn't need any gimmicks: just an open fire, a hardwood bar, an ageing pool table and cheap prices.
They push the craft beer hard and the good times harder at this beer bar-cum-Vietnamese diner.
