This Week In Food: Mixing beer with cheese + fitness, a new wine bar and bottomless brunch

This Week In Food with Kate Stevenson

HOW TO MIX BEER WITH CHEESE

Good Beer Week has kicked off and there are plenty of events to get involved in. For starters – White Rabbit brewery has teamed up with King Island Dairy to present Beer and Cheese Dinner Down the Rabbit Hole. We’re talking a jaw-dropping grazing table, and creative cheese canapés paired with White Rabbit specialty beers, plus live jazz tunes to get you in the mood. So, how do you pair beer and cheese? Well, think combos like King Island smoked Cheddar with roast apple and parsley puree on charcoal brioche with White Rabbit Sour Red, or Ash Brie and pickled enoki mushrooms on sourdough crouton paired with their White Ale. Tix are only $45 per person, it’s all happening Thursday 17 May 2018 from 6.30pm at White Rabbit in Geelong  whiterabbitbeer.com.au

HOW TO MIX BEER WITH GETTING ACTIVE

Speaking of Good Beer Week, how about the opportunity to sink pots and get fit at the same time? Sounds inviting, right? Well, you might want to cart yourself off to Flemington & Kensington Bowling Club’s Bowling with Brewers this Sunday May 13 from 12.30. Twenty four bucks will get you a burger, two beers and free bowls – including the chance to take part in an optional mini tournament. It’s a fun, relaxed, family-friendly day and there’ll be brewers on hand from Aust and NZ to talk all things hops and grain. https://goodbeerweek.com.au/event/view/126-bowling-with-brewers

NEW WINE BAR FOR CHAPEL ST

Well, the last year or two have been all about the wine bar, here’s another one for you. Ines Wine Bar will open 15th May on the ever-popular Chapel Street Windsor. They’re promising an old-world European feel, with Italian, Australian and French wines, classic cocktails and small plates inspired by owner Matteo Bruno’s grandmother, Ines – a daily crostini selection will feature fresh ingredients atop of grilled bread and the Croque Signore is sure to impress, with aged prosciutto and a trio of cheeses oozing out of butter-grilled bread. www.ineswinebar.com.au

BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH

Ever the resourceful researcher, I trudged off to roadtest rockstar steakhouse Angus & Bon’s Bottomless Brunch last weekend. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds. Basically, rock up Saturday or Sunday between 12pm and 2pm, order a main from the menu, and for an extra $39 per person, you can enjoy bottomless Bellinis, Mimosas, Aperol Spritzes and Bloody Marys for a two hour period. The steak frites was a fine accompaniment to these tasty liquid refreshments. http://www.angusandbon.com.au/
