The menu planners decided that a robust list of pizzas goes best with the 120 brews on offer, and many people agree, both in the Australiana-iconed split-level bar and streetside. The Peking duck pizza is a sticky, sweet and surprisingly satisfying collision of thinly sliced duck, plum sauce and sesame seeds atop a routine crust. The gorgonzola, salami and artichoke pizza is less successful, the dryness of the ingredients emphasising a chewy crust. A thick stew of the beef 'n' bock pie seemed a little undercooked, though it was delivered with a smile and a beer recommendation.
