People have been talking about Zierholz premium brewery for a long time which I didn’t really take much interest as I don’t drink beer, but once they started talking about delicious German food my ears pricked up! Located out in Fyshwick, this brewery has a variety of beers on tap, locally sourced wines and best of all- pork belly!
You can get a sample paddle where there is a taster of 7x 60ml beer samples and afterwards get a half pint of your choice.
Zierholz Sharing Platter (min. 2 people) Chef’s selection of sausages, pork belly & schnitzel, accompanied by salad & mash ($22.00 p.p) Everything is delicious on this platter but the pork belly crispness seems to vary from visit to visit.
Fried Garlic Mushrooms with spinach & quark cheese on toasted foccacia ($14.90). I had heard about quark cheese from a German scientist at work so I wanted to try it (it’s ok, I’ve had the tasting platter before ). It had the texture of a smooth ricotta cheese and it went really well with the balsamic, mushrooms and spinach. A great alternative if you don’t like pork or copious amounts of meat.
Sticky date pudding served warm, sticky and gooey, delicious!
Apple strudel served warm with icecream. I’m glad that we made room for dessert!
Another time we came we were able to get the ‘Banquet 1’ ( min. of 6 guest ) ($25.00 p.p) which came with garlic bread (so delicious- I know it’s just garlic bread), wedges, sausages, pork belly, schnitzel, salad and sauerkraut.
You don’t have to get the platter or mushrooms to be impressed, friends have also tried the pie of the day, steak sandwich & wedges and trio of sausages and no one has been disappointed.
Although I have been here several times, I’ve never had a pork knuckle here-next time definitely!
