All ten Bavarian Bier Cafés across Australia, plus Munich Brauhaus in Melbourne, have switched up their focus a bit, hopping right into the middle of craft beer by launching their very own range of haus-brewed beers, including Munich Lager, Butcher’s Bride Pale Ale, a wheat and barley blend called Hop Dock, and the low carb Blonde Moment. With all these brews coming from the Australian-based Crafty Bavarian Brewing Co., this is a good chance for the public to sip on some local brews made in accordance with authentic Bavarian recipes and 500 years of Bavarian brewing traditions.
Of course, all venues will still have their massive lineup of traditional, imported German beers on hand, but these new brews are all front and centre, on tap right alongside a bar menu full of Bavarian-inspired burgers and hot dogs with haus-made sauces and condiments picked to complement the craft brews. To help customers decide on pairings, there are four beer-food specials (each priced at $15) on offer throughout January.
A total of six burgers and five hotdogs have been added to the menu, including a build-your-own-salad option with a menu of leaves, protein, cheese, fruits, nuts, seeds, and more. Those heading along can expect delicious sounding creations like The Hendl Fried Chicken Burger and the The Jojo Jodel Jalapeno Burger.
The $15 pairings on offer through January are:
- The Schultz Burger + 300ml Hop Dock Beer
- The Jojo Jodel Burger + 300ml Butcher’s Bride
- The Munich Dog + 300ml Munich Lager
- Crafty Your Own Salad* + 300ml Blonde Moment
These are the standard options. Add-ons and mix-matches are available.
