The first Tuesday in November has come and gone again, my wallet is a little lighter but I have enjoyed a lovely lunch with friends.
This year we had our Melbourne Cup Lunch at The Brewhouse, formerly the Clarence Corner Hotel, in Woolloongabba. I was very impressed with our 3-course meal and if the alternate drop menu today is anything to go by their chef is doing a superb job.
The venue itself still has a few finishing touches to be completed but features a spacious Restaurant, Public Bar, Lounge Bar and Beer Garden. There is a TAB on site and most importantly, especially for a hotel calling itself The Brewhouse, an extensive menu of beers. The Brisbane Brewing Co., located in Albion, brews in 1000L batches to supply the venue including a pilsner, stout and pale ale.
The Brewhouse can cater for private and corporate functions, has some fantastic specials such as the Twosday - Two for one meal deal, live entertainment, sports coverage and really lovely staff.
The Brewhouse is at 601 Stanley Street, Woolloongabba (cnr. Stanley St & Annerley Rd), with onsite parking and it is close to public transport for those wanting to enjoy a few drinks.
