Nothing screams ‘quintessential Australia’ quite like getting a group of your best pals together, settling at one of Brisbane’s best bars, cracking open a few craft brews and watching…the NFL Superbowl. Huh?
The gang at Embassy Craft Beer Bar are nuts about good beer. As their name oh-so subtly suggests, craft beer is their lady jam. Bottle, tap, local or interstate, beer is the order of the day here, and is celebrated in a big way.
More than 100 bottles can also be found in the fridge, with a fair chunk of Australian brewers including Holgate, Fortitude Brewing, 4 Pines and Vale. Formerly of Malt Dining, chef Rob Campbell can be found in the kitchen conceiving a menu of American-style food for the soul.
Your taste buds will swoon for awarded chef Rob Campbell's contemporary American-style dishes including barbecue smoked pork ribs, sliders and chilli cheese fries, amongst other scrumptious indulgences. Satisfy your hunger at Embassy from Monday to Thursday past 10pm and Friday and Saturday until late.
Embassy Bar, Elizabeth St Your taste buds will swoon for Embassy Bar's awarded chef Rob Campbell's contemporary American style barbecue smoked pork ribs served with corn bread and green beans. For a true American experience, accompany the ribs with spicy buffalo wings with blue cheese sauce and chilli cheese fries.
Recently renovated and revamped, the Embassy Bar is the first craft beer bar in the city. The ground floor bar, seating 240, offers about 16 mainstream craft beers and boutique ciders on tap rotating with another 100 or more in the fridge.
Embassy Bar provides the CBD folk with a little taste of New York when you walk through the door, with their exposed brick walls and industrial light fittings. They stock an exceptional list of craft beers bottled, and are constantly rotating their taps with local and imported craft beers. If you're not sold yet, they have (we think) one of the best bar menus in Brisbane. But we'll let you try for yourself!

Brisbane’s bar scene has never looked as lively, with a rash of openings to come. Even old timers such as the Embassy Hotel are getting in on the act. Closed since January, the hotel will re-open in mid-March as a craft beer bar. The 100-year-old venue has had a much needed freshen-up, says owner Demetri Conias.
