Travel out to Bankstown for the huge venue that is the Bankstown Sports club, and it is an institution in the area. The complex is a hotel, pokies and an amazing array of bars and restaurants, you don’t need to leave, especially when it’s open 24 hours.
On this occasion we went downstairs to the Basement brewery. It is a bar or microbrewery with over 30 beers on tap, specialising in craft beers. From American Pale ales to pilsners or ciders, there’s something for every beer lover! You can also see the brew house in action through viewing glass.We got some beer paddles (basement brewhouse pilsner, basement brewhouse pale ale and american pale ale as well as the basement brewhouse sparking ale.) to sample the different beers.
Food wise, this is the kind of place that is totally to go with a big group of friends to enjoy some burgers and fries over a couple of beers. Now, it’s even suitable for the whole family, with kids meals too for only $10.
Between a group of 5, we had a huge selection of the menu offerings. With three adults and 2 kids, this we felt was a good mix.
For starters and shared items, we had theMac & Cheese Croquettes $12, Crispy Cauliflower Bites $13, Mozzarella Fries $14 and a box of Sweet Potato Fries $9. So moreish, but you gotta stop early before you get too full for the mains ahead.
We also found the Cheat Day Platter to be a great deal, for only $89 you get any 2 burgers, pork ribs, buffalo wings, shoestring fries, slaw and corn. The burgers select were:
*The Mighty Brewburger (Grilled patty, pulled beef, milk bun, jack cheese, lettuce, beetroot, bacon jam, special sauce)
*Chick ‘N’ Lickin’ (Crispy buttermilk chicken thigh, milk bun, jack cheese, lettuce, chipotle mayo). These were both really good burgers and went perfectly with all the other sides.
One of our dining members went for a hot dog, or “The Big Dawg” to be precise. Smoked frankfurter, milk bun, pickles, bacon jam, mustard, ketchup, crispy onions, chips for $17. The crispy onions were a great addition to this dish.
Throw in a salad for good measure! The Brewhouse Chopped Cobb is nice and fresh and colourful. With Lettuce, tomato, corn, avocado, feta, egg for just $15.
The new kids menu items are great – we opted for the Crispy Fish Fillet Burger, Cheese, Tartare Sauce & Fries $10!
Finished off with the Brownie Sundae which was naughty but so nice! Brownie pieces, salt caramel ice cream, chocolate sauce, toffee popcorn, pretzels) $12.
A large venue with plenty of booths, bar seating and tables and chairs. TVs and Foxtel throughout to watch all your favourite sports.
Get the friends and family together for your next lunch or dinner out together.
