Karl and Jenny - OUR STORY
Karl and Jenny have been local residents of the area for a long time. Involved in the local community in many ways, it is important to us that the Flat Rock Brew Café brings together many of our local residents and serves as a meeting place for friends of all ages. We really welcome families with children and being the parents of four young children, understand the importance of having a place to go where parents can relax with their children whilst enjoying quality food and drink. We are fortunate enough to have a loyal following of locals where we aim to provide a great place to meet, and try something different from their local brewery.
The heart of the Flat Rock Brew Café is centred around the small scale brewery which is located downstairs in the café that supplies our café with fresh and exciting brews.
With our fantastic knowledgeable service team on the floor, we really believe we can offer our customers a unique experience, and one that will keep you coming back to enjoy.
We are very proud of the team at Flat Rock. Everyone not only has a good knowledge of craft beer and the brewing process, but also the passion and enthusiasm to talk to our customers about beer and ultimately, provide you with a great experience.
We want you to learn about beer – from what goes into it to how a style originated. So if you want to know more, our beer tasting events are fun, informative and can be customised to budget and size of the group.
Our six taps serve our own beer as well as brews from the ever increasing list of fantastic Australian boutique breweries, whilst our two hand pumps are reserved for Flat Rock beer only, our English Bitter and a seasonal ale. The bottle beer list is hand selected from choices of beer the world over. It would be fair to say this is one of the best (if not the best!) in Sydney.
Our food is highly regarded and compliments our beers, ciders and wine very well. Our shared plates encourage groups to try different things in an informal eating environment, whilst encouraging conversation.
Beer is certainly our focus, and our aim is for our customers to walk out of the café more enlightened about this great drink. For those who want to really explore the world of beer, we offer unique beer tasting events.
Cider has become a very popular drink recently and suiting the Australian climate, we can see why. We have a great selection of Australian made cider, all made with real fruit and good Australian produce.
Our wine list is compact, but always has a carefully selected range of Australian wine. Our supplier is very experienced in the industry and his knowledge is invaluable when we look at keeping our menu fresh and interesting.
Not only do we make beer, but also soft drinks. Made with fresh fruit, they make a delicious non-alcoholic alternative on a hot day.
Something that is important to Karl and Jenny is supporting the local community and since opening, we have been involved in many fund raising events for a number of local schools and preschools. We have also become a venue of choice for community meetings including sporting clubs, scouts and local street gatherings. We also look to be as environmentally sustainable as possible, and have implemented a number of programs to achieve this.
We are very proud of what the Flat Rock Brew Café stands for, and with our dedicated and friendly staff, look forward to seeing all our friends, locals and appreciators of beer (cider and wine too!), come and enjoy some great food, drink and company in the near future. We truly appreciate the support you have all given us. Thank you.
