This is how the big boys do it. Located at the famous Carlton & United Brewery, home to Carlton Draught and VB, the BrewHouse has over 150,000 litres of beer flowing through it daily. If you opt to take a tour of the brewery you might be feeling a little peckish afterwards – which is where the bar menu steps in.
There was never any doubt that you’d be able to get an ice cold CUB beer at the BrewHouse – they have 11 on tap alone. To accompany the bevvies (which also feature prominently in the meals) the Carlton BrewHouse puts up a healthy burger menu with beef, pork, chicken, lamb and veggo options. For the discerning customer the menu also helpfully recommends beer pairings.
Burgers aren’t the only thing on the menu. The BrewHouse does fish and chips, chicken parmas and pot pies – classic pub food. For less than $20 you can also set yourself up with a kilo of chicken wings and your choice of sauce.
Tours of the Abbotsford brewery run Wednesday to Sunday and you will need to pre-book. Sundays are the prime time to go: from 2pm there’s live music and burger-and-pint combos for just $20. Or for $49 you can get a burger, a pint of beer and a brewery tour.
