Came here once before a one day international match at the Gabba. Very low key casual and traditional atmosphere, good combo of the atmosphere I got at traditional bars in Bavaria and old school Australian pubs.
I remember at the time I had come back from a trip to Germany and had fallen in love with weissbiers. I wasn't familiar with names at this stage and the staff behind the bar gladly poured me selection of random wheat beers. They seemed to enjoy showing off their range to someone coming over from the cricket who wanted more than just some macro-brewery lager.
A rainy day, the match was delayed and looking to be cancelled so we ended back at the German club with what seemed like half the crowd from the Gabba. The club was pack full and rowdy. Beach balls were being thrown around and a game of cricket was being played out in the main hall.
The staff kept their composure, I suppose this is something they were used to seeing as the club has always been next door to a major sporting ground. Despite all the hoonery from drunken sports fans service remained professional if a little less enthusiastic. I guess they had to keep thinking of all the money they'd be raking in off the drunk louts.
So atmosphere is mostly low key and traditional but the place can come alive and keep its top on when a bomb goes off inside. Good selection of German beers all served in the correct glassware. Service was friendly and professional. Didn't try the food but it looked nice and hearty and it was definitely not expensive.
Very happy this place exists in Brisbane.
