Time Out Melbourne Pub Awards Winners

Many of Melbourne's craftiest venues took out trophies at the second Time Out Melbourne Pub Awards. Pub of the Year went to The Last Jar, who also collected Best Pub Food, while Publican of the Year went to the mates who turned the former Gertrude's Brown Couch into The Catfish. People's Choice, meanwhile, went to Beer DeLuxe Hawthorn while The Local Taphouse in St Kilda collected Best Beer List.

The awards were held last night at Beer DeLuxe in Federation Square, the Good Beer Week Festival Hub, with publicans, bartenders and industry folk joined by 260 partygoers.

Time Out Melbourne Pubs Editor, Fred Siggins, explains: β€œThe pubs of Melbourne are as integral to our culture as good coffee, bad weather and AFL. The best among them support live music, good food, craft beer and a positive drinking culture. It's a real pleasure to have the opportunity to recognise such an important part of what makes Melbourne awesome.”
