Adelaide Hills, Lobethal, Lobethal Bierhaus, microbrewery, pulled pork quesadilla, sausages, tasting paddle, venison burger
On a cool, sunny winters day, we took a drive up the southeastern freeway to Lobethal.
One of the places we have visited many times is the Lobethal Bierhaus. We stopped for a light lunch, and a tasting paddle of beer – of course!
This microbrewery has been in operation for nearly 10 years with a cellar door, restaurant and beer garden.
Although we didn’t book, we were lucky enough to grab a table outside in the winter sunshine.
Having tried many items from the main menu today we decided on a light lunch.
The pulled pork with mac cheese quesadilla was perfect for winter, with pickled red onions, coriander, tomato and sour cream sauce. It was hot and comforting with lots of carbs, creaminess from the sour cream and freshness from the coriander and tomato with a little tang from the pickled red onions. I thoroughly enjoyed this dish!
The petite venison burger had a Birdwood venison burger on Bierhaus brioche bun with seasonal fruit chutney, Swiss cheese, fries and beerenberg tomato sauce. The patty was dense with sweetness from the brioche bun and fruit chutney. The fries were hot, crunchy and salty.
And from the kids menu our son enjoyed sausages with chips, salad and Beerenberg’s special tomato sauce. The sausages were quite thick and chunky.
We shared a tasting paddle so we could taste the variety of beers. They included:
Lisa – German style Kolsch;
Goodbier – traditional Pilsner;
India Pale Ale;
Red Truck porter;
Chocolate oatmeal stout.
Once again a very enjoyable meal accompanied by some fabulous beers!
The Lobethal Bierhaus is just 45 minutes from Adelaide, and a beautiful drive in the Adelaide Hills.
