offal and craft beer in Melbourne

We went to Josie Bones last night (98 Smith St near Gertrude) and it was FABULOUS. We had lamb heart and duck heart and pork crackling and kipfler potatoes and lamb tongue. And we had some great IPA/APAs that I have never seen before. This place is a temple to beer and offal. The best beer and food combination I have found so far in Australia. We walked in on a Saturday night without reservations and sat down. Plus if you are alone it is an easy place to eat dinner - lots of seats at the bar. I love a place that has crackling of the day. Go quick before a million people all find it. We did run up quite a tab ($148 for 2), but we were trying some expensive beers - a bottle from Japan and some other obscure beer. I had a great time. It is right next door to Easy Tiger which we are trying tonight. The 112 tram will get you close, or the 86 tram. The dishes are small plates that go well with beer. I loved seeing things I rarely see on menus. We'll be going back.
