It’s no secret that a nice, cold pint of beer tastes even better when you’re drinking it on the cheap. And if you know the right places to look, you can do exactly that, all week long. We’ve done the hard work for you and scouted out some of the city’s most budget-friendly pints, so that you can get your beer fix, without breaking the bank. Here’s some of Sydney’s cheapest pints, by night.
Deep Groove Cheapest Pints
Team that refreshing pint with tunes of your choosing, at Newtown record bar, Deep Groove. Here, you can browse through a solid collection of vinyl, pick a few favourites to pop on the player, and then kick back and enjoy, with a cold drink in hand. Visit during 5-7pm happy hour, to score pints for just $6 each.
Beach Burrito Cheapest Pints
If you’re in need of a little hump day treat to see you through the week, you’ll find it at fun-loving Mexican joint, Beach Burrito. On Wednesdays here, happy hour prices run all day long, right up until the doors shut at 10pm. And that, my friends, means pints of beer priced at a cool $5.
Pyrmont Bridge Hotel Cheapest Pints
After a long day at work, those hard-earned knock-offs shouldn’t send you broke. Clock off and head down to The Pyrmont Bridge Hotel, where the weekday happy hour specials are too good to refuse. From 5-6pm, the pub’s offering $6 pints on all 40 of its beer and cider taps, along with $6 serves of mushroom arancini and crispy fried chicken wings.
The Australian Heritage Hotel Cheapest Pints
We all know the best Sunday sessions are the ones involving plenty of tasty craft beer. The Australian Heritage Hotel knows it too, which is why the pub slashes the price of all of its ‘passport’ beers by 20%, every Sunday. Head in to cap off your weekend with some great boutique drops from around the country.
Sundays @ Aurora Rooftop Hotel Cheapest Pints
At Aurora Rooftop Hotel, Sunday is definitely a fun day, thanks to the laidback vibes, the sporting action on the big screen, and the weekend-worthy drink specials flying from the bar. Settle in for a lazy afternoon, capping off your weekend with pints of delicious beer for just $7 a pop.
Strawberry Hills Hotel Cheapest Pints
When Thursday night finds you feeling thirsty, but also a little bit stingy, you’ll find a ripper beer situation at The Strawberry Hills Hotel. During all Thursday night NRL games, the buzzing Surry Hills pub slings icy cold pints of Carlton, at schooner prices – quench your thirst, watch the footy, and save some coin in the process.
Dove & Olive Cheapest Pints
The Dove & Olive’s Thrifty Thursdays are proof that a craft beer obsession needn’t send you broke. Each week, the Surry Hills pub will see you happily through to Friday, with the help of $5 schooners and $12 jugs of selected craft beers from the taplist.
Hotel Steyne Cheapest Pints
Tuesdays can be just as rough as Mondays…unless, of course, you’ve got Hotel Steyne on your side. The Manly pub will sort you out with pints for schooner prices, between 6-8pm each Tuesday, in the front bar. Stick around afterwards to treat yourself to a pizza from the Seaside Bistro menu.
Mondays @ The Henson
Marrickville
The Henson Cheapest Pints
What better cure for those Monday blues, than a couple of well-deserved coldies at your local? The Henson’s weekly Monday night ‘pint party’ is always a winner, with all pints of the pub’s tap beer offered at schooner prices. There’s also free pool all day, so you can enjoy a spot of friendly competition at the same time.
