Contributing to Melbourne’s booming craft beer scene is Tallboy and Moose, a Preston brewery that quietly opened its doors in October. Four beers are made on-site — a table beer, cream ale, amber ale and pale ale — and they’re all served in a lofty, warehouse beer hall that’s been decked out with indoor plants and timber benches. It’s perfectly unpretentious — stripped back and fresh.

Aside from bags of chips available at the bar, there’s no food service. But the food trucks that regularly appear around the brewery make up for it, as do nearby restaurants Chew BurgerStray Neighbour and Noi Pizzeria. Tallboy and Moose also serve apple juice crushed to order and mixed with your favourite spirit, as well as one-litre cans of beer that are available for takeaway. If that’s not enough reason for a nomination, then we don’t know what is.
