The Local Taphouse

The Local Taphouse on UrbanspoonThe Local Taphouse

Last night we went out for dinner to The Local Taphouse. Its a small old school pub, beer bottles lining the walls. A typical kitschy type of place we go to. The staff are friendly, quick service and always lovely to go here.

When you walk up the stairs on the left is the bar with an awesome selection of beers.

Whats the point going to a pub if you don't have beer?

 Our Friend had the Haanbakk Oak aged Ale

I had the beer paddle which is 5 different beers (90ml) each but still fun to do.
You start from the left (lightest beer) and drink to the left (darkest beer).

I started with the Mclaren Vale Indian Pale Ale from South Australia, very light and fruity with slight bitterness after taste.

Next was the Doghouse Indian Pale Ale from New South Wales, quiet hoppy with a bit of bitterness, but still great.

I had the Jerome Lambic next from Illawarra Brewing Co, New South Wales, it had a  red wine taste to it, but was also slightly sour. 

Madamin is from Loverbeer Italy, tasted like cherries but not as heavy as the next beer.

Last was Boon Kriek  from Brouweri in Belguim which was another Lambic .It was like drinking cherries. It had a very strong flavour.

We had Cream Korokke with apple sauce, with chips and mayonnaise.
The korokke was very crispy with the creamy center and just went so well with apple sauce. You can never go wrong with chips can you?

I had the 3 beer burger, it was really juicy and tasty

Kim Had the Beef Green Curry, it had some chilliness to it. But was still lovely.

After all that we ordered desert..Why it sounded amazing
Bread and butter pudding with a toffee sauce

 It is definitely a place to try for good food and burgers.

Kind regards
