June 2014, 3 years ago, The Institution poured it's first pint. It's been a special journey since then, full of good times, good vibes, and good beer. And this is all in thanks to you, our dear customers.

Thanks to the incredible support we have received over the years, beautiful beer has continued to flow from the taps at our little bar. The bar has been rife with banter, laughter and mischief, an ever-changing atmosphere of good energy.  The reviews on Facebook and Trip Adviser have humbled us, and been incredible motivation in our quest for continually providing the best customer experience.

We often comment on how awesome our customers are, just the nicest, coolest people who we love to hang out with and serve quality beverages. So thank you. Thank you for your support, for choosing us, and for being well awesome.

As thanks, and in celebration of our 3rd birthday, we are doing something a little hair brained. We are issuing a limited, one-off run of 150 Institution 3 Year Residency cards at $250 each. These cards entitle the bearer to COST PRICE EVERYTHING at The Institution for 3 years. Beer, wine, cocktails, food. We are but your humble servants presenting to you beverages and food free of mark up and profit. The cost price will vary per item, with tap beers and wine from as low as $4 a pint / glass.

Terms and conditions naturally apply.
