Hophaus Bar Location: West end, Mid-level Southgate Ave, Southbank, VIC Contact: 03 9682 5900 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. The bright bar adds a unique new beer hall experience to the Southgate dining scene; an experience that delights and surprises yet also feels familiar and hospitable. With 30 draught taps around a huge central bar, the beer hall has a wide range of German, Austrian, Belgian and Czech Brews on offer, all offered in the stunning architectural design of multi award-winning Maddison Architects. Hophaus also features a selection of German, Austrian and Alsace wines by the glass along with New World wines that celebrate the region’s famed varieties: Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gruner Veltliner and more. On the other end of the spectrum, the menu is laden with classic Bavarian favourites with a contemporary Melbourne flair with a big focus on communal shared dining. The kitchen is open for lunch and dinner.
The Food Society attended this event as a guest of Hophaus.
