Last week I was lucky enough to be invited by Guarav from Sasquatch and the Australian Good Food Guide to check out this new venue in Chermside.
Feel like a cold one, but don't want to schlepp to the Westfield to drink with the view of a carpark or head to the local leagues club? Sasquatch is your new local with atmosphere, fancy beer and tasty chow.
It's that rare breed of place that's atmospheric enough for a casual date night when you're looking to impress, but it's also the perfect place to imbibe 27 pots of craft beer on a 38 degree Summer's day with your mates (ahem).
Guarav or 'G', leads the operation and directed the new fitout of the venue after his family had run an Indian Restaurant on the premises for several years. It's modern, friendly and has a nice vibe to it. Motown classics were humming from the speakers and we were in a good mood. On Monday it was predictably quiet, but were assured that even in the three weeks they'd been open, the weekends were going off.
The beer and food have been well thought out. Craft beer lovers will rejoice in seeing Brisbane Brewing Co, Newstead Brewing Co, Burleigh Brewing and more on the taps. We tried four beers across two rounds of pots and really enjoyed some fully flavoured lagers, pale ales and amber ales. My favourite was the Black Hops and I would do anything for a cold pint of it right about now. #noaircon #sendbagsoficeforthebathtub
G loves his beer and has mates who love it even more. If you go in for a cold one on a quiet evening or afternoon, why not say hi and get him to tell you all about it? There's a lot to learn!
