The Brass Barrel
Slighty British-themed, and slightly unexpected.
March 10, 2016
There's never a bad time of day to find yourself in Rosalie, as the area's newest establishment knows. If the sun is shining and the birds are chirping, you're probably after breakfast or lunch. Once evening hits, it's all about dinner and drinks.
The Brass Barrel, Baroona Road's latest cafe, bar and gastropub, caters for both occasions inside confines so cosy — complete with wooden bar stools, tiled tables and leather bench seating — that they're contained within a rustic picket fence. And, they serve up their slightly British-themed meals and drinks with a twist, as even a quick glance at their menu demonstrates.
Instead of chicken wings, you'll find chicken ribs, for example. Their signature beef burger rests on a black brioche bun, while their eggs benedict comes braised pork and sriracha. Cocktails such as The Grape Escape, Glazed & Ginfused and Beatnik Hemmingway mix everything from plum bitters to gummi bears to beetroot with alcohol. Or, grab a Brass Barrel Lager on tap; basically, if a dish or drink has the restaurant's name in the title, you can't go wrong.
