Brisbane Beer Days Out - Brewhouse Brisbane

For lunch on Saturday, our group 10 people descended on the Brewhouse Brisbane, which was convinenetly located almost next door to our hotel.  All the meals were decent sized, reasonably priced and there was not one complaint from our table. However, the most interesting thing here was the beer and beans.

The beer tasting paddle is a must (no small mouthful-size samples here - 6x almost-full-pots of each of their beers). The 5 house beers they had on tap (Sunshine - honey wheat, Star Lager - pilsner, The Heffe - Hefeweizen, BPA - Brisbane Pale Ale, Black IPA) were all very drinkable, without being outstanding.  The BPA a "light-bodied Australian-style Pale Ale is brewed exclusively with Australian ingredients" was my favorite.  Since the tasting paddle held 6 glasses but they only had 5 house beers on top, I was given another full glass of beer of my choice, which I thought was very generous.

The beans, listed on the snack menu as a 'House Specialty' and described thus: "delicious chilli salted beans combining borlotti beans, black-eyed beans, cannellini beans & chick peas seasoned in a spicy salt & served warm."  They sound weird but tasted totally delicious - hot, salty, moist (I think they missed the chilli in our batch) and should not be missed.

(Sorry I forgot the camera, but it's really just your typical up-market recently renovated pub venue).
