Located next door to Thirty Five Stirling at Thebarton, Brightstar Brewing operates as both a brewery and a bar offering their own craft beers. In addition to the small dishes on their menu, customers can also order dishes from Thirty Five Stirling to enjoy here.

One of the most popular dishes on their menu, the slices of pastrami in their Reuben Sandwich were tender and partnered perfectly by the sauerkraut. Reuben sauce added a hint of spiciness to the sandwich, with the Swiss cheese helping to tamper the heat. As expected, the ingredients were sandwiched between rye bread that was lightly toasted to give it a bit of crispiness.

For vegetarians, there is a version of the Reuben Sandwich that switched the pastrami for cubes of beetroot. While it can be a bit messy to eat, the beetroot retained a bit of bite and imparted a slightly sweet flavour to the dish.

Presented in a form resembling a Panini sandwich, their Ham and Cheese Toastie was toasted to a nice degree. Mustard provided a hint of a tangy flavour. All their sandwiches came with dill pickles.

The texture of the Salted Caramel Brownie was of the fudgy style typical of American Brownies. It had a delectable chocolatey taste. Chocolate bits were mixed throughout the brownie to add a bit of extra texture. While the topping of salted caramel may make it seem the brownie would be too sweet, it actually complemented the chocolate flavour nicely.

Aside from their own craft beers, Brightstar Brewing also offers a few other drinks from other brewers. The drink that we enjoyed was Big Shed's non-alcoholic Passionfruit and Mango Fruit Sour, which had the right amount of flavour from the fruits that make up its name.

The decor of the place gave it a modern look and the high ceiling gave it an airy and spacious feel. It is a nice place to catch up with friends for a drink. A carpark located not too far from the complex offers convenient off-street parking.
