Cast your eyes over Craft Beer and Grill's menu, and two things stand out: meat and munchies. The newest addition to Woolloongabba's Trafalgar Lane boasts plenty of both, which is great news for a number of reasons. Want a hearty meal before heading to whatever sport takes your fancy at the Gabba? Just in the area and looking for steaks, burgers, sausages, skewers and more? Either way, you're in luck.
Both American and Brazilian influences are evident among their meaty spread — a Texas burger here, the grilled goodness of churrasco there — but the real emphasis is on the kind of blend of flavours and tastes that really does make up modern Australian cuisine today. With that in mind, starting with cider pork belly and rocket, moving on to 24-hour marinated Vietnamese pork on a stick, snacking on Thai BBQ wings and sharing a New York-style pizza is just one culinary journey hungry diners could take.
Anyone looking for a tasty way to start a Saturday can drop by for brekkie, with the early menu still evolving. Then there's the beer, aka the first part of the restaurant's name (and, if you like craft brews, arguably the most important). Bottled, one of eight on tap, plus big keg barrels for those feeling extra thirsty are all available, as well as the usual array of wine and spirits.
