Hophaus for Good Food Month
HOPHAUS is participating in Good Food Month and The World Loves Melbourne was invited along to sample the fare.
A contemporary twist on the great Bavarian Beer Halls, HOPHAUS is the latest addition to Red Rock Leisure's stable of social pubs and Southgate's restaurant precinct, drawing inspiration from the history and tradition of the world's original "craft breweries" that celebrates the Germanic approach to brewing, one of both art and science. With unparalleled views along the Yarra housing up to 350 patrons, HOPHAUS is an exciting new destination for Melbourne social gatherings.
HOPHAUS is a chic German establishment with an impressive frontage...
HOPHAUS boasts a modern fit out with great use of timber and lighting, plants, tiles, and cracking views to Southbank below.
HOPHAUS served me a Kolsch (beer from Cologne) to start with, an appropriate welcome to this bier haus.
Get your German meat eater delight with the HOPHAUS Jager Schnitzel (pictured above). Jager in German roughly translates to Hunter. Hence, the dish comprises of two cutlets of Pork topped with a creamy mushroom sauce, with of course, the signature Hophaus modern twist. Matched with Blaufrankisch wine: a soft red wine variety from Austria, displaying characteristics much like a Pinot Noir. A perfect match for the funky mushrooms.
I arrived early before the lunch crowd, and mused on the modern chic look of HOPHAUS - check out the number of taps along the bar...
HOPHAUS is known for its range of beers but it's cuisine also needs praise. I enjoyed the quality of the pork neck for the Jager schnitzel and the fact it wasn't crumbed or fried.
As I walked past the kitchen I also noticed this succulent meat cooking over coals.
HOPHAUS houses over 30 draught taps around its huge central bar. With an impressive selection of German, Austrian, Belgian and Czech Brews on offer, HOPHAUS is a unique drinking house, somewhere to taste and learn about the famous German beer styles that have influenced the drinking habits of generations across the globe.
HOPHAUS is a superb addition to Melbourne and has been highly patronised especially at night and on weekends. Come and visit during Good Food Month!
