I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Brewing Beer In Newcastle
Foghorns are synonymous with the city of Newcastle and FogHorn Brewhouse is synonymous with locally brewed craft beer.
Opened in April 2015, FogHorn is housed in an abandoned Art Deco warehouse which has been kept industrial in appearance with lots of quirky features to look at. The large open space has a seating capacity of 250 but gets very busy on weekends so bookings are preferable.
Some of the entertainment on offer is a 'giant games' day on summer Sundays, brewery tours for $5 on weekends, live music, trivia nights and comedy shows. Merchandise from beer mugs to beanies and clothing as well as takeaway food and growlers of beer are available. As well as beer, they offer a choice of wines, cocktails and specialty gins.
The food is mainly American style jerk chicken, buffalo wings and BBQ and they have 38cm pizzas that are great for sharing. The Moroccan lamb salad for $17 and the lunch special chicken tomato & mozzarella salad for $10.99 were tasty light lunch options. We paired each of them with a glass of the suggested beer. Most of the foods have been paired with a suitable beer that enhances the dining experience.
There is always something on such as the lunch specials under $15, Wednesday schnitzel nights and happy hours where you can get a schooner for $5. The brew house has a great atmosphere and is a fun place to take people who love drinking beer as much as the brewers love creating it.
