Beer Yes. Epicuria No. Nov 30, 2012
After a dinner costing over $1000, it was concluded that this is more of a place to enjoy a variety of beers than to dine.
The lamb stew was more salty than bland. The vegetables soggy, the lamb meat surprisingly flavourless. The pretzel served with the stew (thankfully unsalted) had more flavour!
The sausage selection was slightly better with several of the sausages having a solid robust taste.
The pizza (chicken) was likely the best of the lot. However, this being the case, it was not a particularly noteworthy pizza by local standards. Or even by international standards. More like a very good pizza in comparison to the other dishes (which were disappointing). This was a thin-crust pizza, with the crust carrying most of the flavour.
Supplementary Information:This place apparently offers sampler sets (of beer). Only two ciders available (Green Goblin, Magners). Had to stop the bartender from pouring the cider I ordered over ice (really strange practice here!). All said and done, I thought the service was good. The desserts were good. The cider was good. But the entrees were, for the price charged, simply substandard. Unfortunately I assessed a 'cry' rating as this is not a site for BEvERage assessment - but rather food; and man cannot live on cheesecake alone.
Having a TV behind the urinal was a first for me; rather quaint being able to piss on personalities. So, feel bonus merited for environment.
