Whinny all the way to The Stables Craft Bar & Kitchen

There’s a new front-runner in Ascot’s craft beer and bar scene, sitting in prime position on the ever-popular Racecourse Road dining precinct for throwing back a few cold ones and nibbling on some fine nosh. And we’re telling you now, the odds of it becoming our new favourite race day regular are pretty great! The new bar tucked away next to Le Bon Choix might be hard to spot, but that’s all part of its charm, along with the industrial look interior that marks any bar worth it’s salt these days. The small space is kitted out in tables just big enough for a few craft beer aficionados to enjoy a craft-ernoon and top notch bar bites. brisbane bars stables 4003 You’ll find a hefty selection of craft beers on the drinks list to get your blood pumping, along with a few ciders, boutique wines and spirits. You can choose from a myriad of brews, sourced from microbreweries all over Australia and a small selection from the US, with a choice of seven beers and one cider on tap at any given time, as well as a sizable bottled collection to whet your whistle on. Once you’ve worked up a decent craft beer hanger, you can get started on the bar menu. Boasting a meal size to suit any appetite, there’s a variety of ‘light bites’, ‘bigger bites’, and ‘lunch bites.’ Start off with a plate of house marinated olives and crusty bread (honestly, we can never go past a good crusty bread), and then tuck into some of the deliciousness on offer like hot, crispy croquettes (because there’s literally nothing better than deep-fried noms and booze), peppered squid, or your choice of three mouth watering sliders. brisbane bars stables 401 Trot down to The Stables Craft Bar & Kitchen after work for a hump day cure or finish off your weekend with a well-deserved Sunday brew.

Just giddy up and get down there! Words by Lucille Burkitt
