The Zierholz Brewery bar/cafe – opening real soon now Now open

With the fitout and paperwork nearly complete Christoph Zierholz invited a select group to have a look at the bar/cafe he’s built into his Fyshwick brewery.

The slideshow tells you most of what you need to know.

Everyone there seemed to like it, more importantly I like it.

The glass topped beer barrels are a nice touch and the long tables are deeply reminiscent of central european beer dens.

He’s hoping to be open for business before the end of the month. So well worth checking out if you’re in that part of town.

[RiotACT swaps ad space for Christoph’s beer. But we wouldn’t do it if we didn’t like it.]

UPDATED: The following just in from Christoph:

    Zierholz at the Brewery Bar and Restaurant will be officially open for business as of 11 am today…

ANOTHED UPDATE: In response to your questions I can now confirm the beers will sell for $6 per pint, $3.50 per half. Food for now is kransky rolls and hopmeister battered fish and chips, with a chef being interviewed this weekend so more to come thereafter.

Hours:
Weekdays 11-7pm (or late)
Weekends 11-5 (or later by booking)

Well, armed with our vouchers, and battered from doing a lap of DFO, we arrived at Zierholz’s door today. The door was shut with “closed” on it. Some other people were also peering at the opening hours sign on the front. Closed Sundays.

So we went to Pangaea, and I’ll write about that elsewhere.

(Musing, could get me 2 middies I guess, try two beerz).

It clearly says limit one voucher per customer.

Yeah, pay for one middie, get the other middie free, = two beers to drink.

Good schnitzel? Excellent.

Depends on the weather on sunday. Rain, we go to Epicentre and then Beer. Sunny, we go for a shamble along the Queanbo River Walk.

There’s an ad around somewhere which links to it, but its not quite in the high-rotation everyone seems to demand.

Direct Linky to Voucherino

erm. I seem to recal reading about discount vouchers here somewhere but can’t find them. Are they still around?

I went out there last weekend with the outlaws and I can’t say enough nice things about it.

You folks out there have to try the Wiezen – a really nice wheat beer with a strong hint of banana on the palete. Sounds weird as hell but is absolutely delicious. Food was top notch as well. We had a melt-in-the-mouth beef and beer stew, a really lively smoked-trout salad and a chacuterie (snags and cured meat) plate that was just the business with a couple of pints.

I’d also note that it was dirt-cheap for what we got. There was hardly anything on the menu over $16, and $6 for a pint of top-notch beer can’t be beat.

*I have no affiliation whatsoever with Zierholz. In fact, I’d never sampled their wares till last weekend. But I’ll be back. Oh yes.

I’ve been there for a beer and a feed. There were 60/40 blokes to chicks ratio there that day. The German food is fantastic and the low alc beer was delicious… made being the designated driver not such a bad thing.

Granny Granny 4:04 pm 05 Sep 08

I was thinking of going there on my birthday because, having a parent who hails from the Barossa region, I love German food. But if hardly any women go there that might be a bit daunting.

Just got back for an extended lunch:

Weizen – great one to clear the palate after a big night the night before. Heaps of flavour and a clean after-taste. Perfect balance of hops and ‘banana’.
Porter – Toasty rich flavour. A bit thin for a porter. Blinking strong.
Pils – Clean and crisp but not as good as a the real thing. Not enough herb or anything else for that matter.
Koelsch – light, refreshing. Tastes just like the real thing but with heaps more alcohol. Easy drinking but non-descript if you don’t know that’s how it’s meant to be…

BTW – I realise I drank these in the wrong order and hence proably missed out on some of the flavour of the pils and koelsch. Just going to have to go back and try harder next time.

I also had a taste of their low alcohol beer(2.7%) and it had way more flavour then any of the commercial light beers. A very good option for the driver and seeing as it’s in Fyshwick some poor sucker will always have that role.

As for the food – it was over-priced but good. Missed out on some basic stuff, like no bread with the sausages. Sauerkraut was top-knotch. Stew looked the business and the spaetzle “had heaps of flavour”. Portions too small to be authentic.

Overall – good atmosphere. Buzz of conversation and no music/pokies like a bar should be. The 3 women with us were the only females in the place and it was packed! Food took an age to come but that gave us time to try a good range of beer. Definitely worth another visit.

Flying Doormat – no need to get Moyra, this beer speaks for itself. Now go get a Zierholz!

I’ve considered selling body parts for beer. Get a grip you lot.

but what maelinar doesn’t disclose is that they’re not his body parts… ; )

Well in clubs the beer is subsidised by the poker machines, so the cost structures are wildly different.

But we are waiting for a full menu and prices from Christoph.
