Pork Belly now has Porter on Tap

By Christoph Zierholz - 23 October 2008 13

I’ll see if I can get away with what could be construed as a bit of shameless advertising…

After months of trying to get venues to stock anything other than my German Ale (not that there is anything wrong with that mind you) I am pleased to let you know that the Pork Barrel Cafe next to the Lobby now has both the German Ale and the Porter on tap.

If you love rich chocolatey brews and can’t make it all the way out to Fyshwick why not check it out in there.

Probably go well with your dessert!

Prost!!!

if only they’d had it! (actually, if they’d had it i am sure we’d have had a pair of pints of that particular product…)

If only you’d included the pint of Porter ….

*sigh*

; )

A pint of Porter, please,” which was delightfully alliterative

you just reminded me, granny, of a fave otupouring of unsuspected alliteration – in a deli in sydeny some years ago (too many!) i, with my friend, surveyed their wares, convened and decided, and so i asked for, “two pork pies and two pieces of pecan pie, please.” entirely without pre-thinking – the whole shop shushed for a moment before giggling!

[i don’t think you’ve got away with it, z! ; )]

While not in Canberra, and not exactly close enough to nick down to your local for a pint- Grazing at Gundaroo has Zierholz German Ale, Pale Ale & Amber Ale all available on tap (and occasionally they have the wheat beer too). Big ups to them for supporting the mighty Zierholz.

At one point i think ‘A Bite To Eat’ in Chifley also stocked 2 different Zierholz beers, however they may have gone back to just the German Ale.

Nice to know, even better would be if they cleaned the place and didn’t serve flat beer. Seriously Pot Belly if you serve flat beer from the tap don’t get pissed off when I return a round and demand another from a different tap. Also topping up a glass that is flat will not turn that beer drinkable.

No idea what you’re talking about. Obviously not a local, but happy to tak on your concerns. Firstly, like any establishment, gotta have patience with new staff (not an excuse, but a reality – I’ve seen plenty of places where the new staff aren’t 100% sure of what they’re doing). Secondly, they don’t have any beer duplicated on another tap – if asking for beer from a different tap, how would that work? Coopers instead of Carlton? Light instead of full strength? Thirdly, beer in general is flatter if served in cold, clean glasses; as I’ve mentioned before, Headmaster increases bubbles but makes it go flatter ealier.

Pork Belly is a cafe in Parkes near Old Parliament House that has the gall to charge $15/bottle corkage…and their winelist markups would be enough to put you off the grog

Last night at Zierholz with Overheard and the Hash House Harriers I got to say, “A pint of Porter, please,” which was delightfully alliterative. I also learned to like beer! It was the best fun!!

Now that is good news. Does anyone else stock other beers by Zierholz. I like the German Ale but it is the worst (read least character/closest to Aussie mainstream stuff) of the bunch.

There is no shame in a shameless plug.
