The “Lord Nelson” is Sydney’s oldest continually licensed pub, receiving its present name and liquor licence in 1841. After running as a pub for nearly 150 years, the microbrewery was installed in the late 1980’s.
Today, there are six mainstay beers and as well as being on tap, two are available bottled. Considerable pride is taken in creating these beers, using only four ingredients ; hops, malt, yeast and pure Sydney water.
This is a popular venue, built from local sandstone blocks in the Colonial style with a traditional look, both inside and out. There are lots of little touches to remind you that the pub really was named after naval hero Lord Horatio Nelson, when the pub started in 1841. Proud battle honours adorn the bar, along with signal flags and navy memorabilia. “Copenhagen 1801”, “Trafalgar 1805” and so on. Then there’s the beer…
Measures are in half pints and pints, and there are traditional ales, a bitter and a porter.
“Three Sheets” Pale Ale ; pale gold with a floral aroma and citrus, herb and peppery notes. 4.9% ABV. This is my favourite of the “Lord Nelson” beers, and I prefer the bottled ale to the draught.
Also there is “Old Admiral” Dark Ale ; dark brown with peach and mango aromas. Malt-driven with caramel notes and a smooth malt finish. 6.1% ABV. Available on tap and bottled.
The next four are on tap and are brewed exclusively at the “Lord Nelson”.
“Quayle Ale” Pale Ale is a light, refreshing Summer Ale. 4.5% ABV.
“Victory Bitter”; an English Pale Ale, spicy and full of malt flavours. 5% ABV.
“Trafalgar” Ale ; an English Bitter with plenty of hop bitterness. 4.2% ABV.
“Nelson’s Blood” Porter ; rich and dark, with creamy, roasted flavours in the style of and Irish stout.
Lord Nelson is remembered for many famous naval actions and for the wise things that he said.
When he said ; “First gain the Victory and then make the best use of it you can”, he could have been referring to naval strategy. However, it is equally probable that he was just thirsty and was thinking about the “Victory Bitter”.
