HOBART | Kaiju Can Bar in Hobart’s CBD is a unique and eclectic bar that has no beer taps, and no drinks other than beer in cans on offer. We met owner, Kiwi and former DJ Scott Marshall, when we were last in town and loved his down to earth, unpretentious attitude. It’s an attitude that flows through to the bar itself, which is name Kaiju after the Japanese word for ‘strange beast’ or ‘monster’. The bar’s fitout is very eclectic, the walls covered with posters about anything and everything. A few couches, tables, and stools provide seating options in the tiny venue.

The music here is equally eclectic, with all kinds of music being played, the only rule is that the music is good and that it helps people have a good time. Being a DJ since the 1990s meas that Scott has a large music collection – over 700 vinyl records and over 1,500 CDs. You’ll often see him mixing tunes behind the decks while his collegue Nick tends the bar. Speaking of the bar, the can list too is as eclectic as everything else in the bar.

All of the cans on offer at Kaiju are displayed above the bar, with price and ABV % listed to make the decision making process easier. The non-craft beer drinker won’t feel intimidated, with lagers from breweries like Cascade, CUB, Kirin, and Asahi on offer, but those looking for a craftier drop will also be pleased. Beers from breweries like Kaiju (unrelated), Colonial, Last Rites, Oskar Blues, and BrewDog can be found here, with a wide range of style being offered. How do Scott and Nick decide to stock? Easy, it’s just beers that they like and their customers like.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
