Fritzenberger brings its finger-lickin’ fare and frothies to Wilston
The team behind the popular bar, burger joint and brewery Fritzenberger has added a second location to its portfolio – smack-bang on two years since the brand’s initial launch on Petrie Terrace. Feverish fans of Twisties-salt covered fries, Southern-fried chicken and juicy burgers are fasting ahead of the store’s opening tomorrow Saturday September 15 in Wilston – we’ve got a look inside the burger and brew pub, clueing you in on a few tasty wrinkles.
This weekend marks the second birthday of Petrie Terrace’s Fritzenberger, but it’s okay – you don’t need to get a present. To celebrate the milestone the team is gifting Brisbane a second Fritzenberger location in Wilston’s main hub of Kedron Brook Road. The Fritzenberger brains trust – spearheaded by Andrew Jeffries, Steve Minon and Matthew Bailey of Harajuku Gyoza fame – fell in love with the prominent corner space (formerly home to The Coffee Club) and its potential as a valued addition to the suburb’s dining strip. After a sharp sprucing, the new location now boasts a cool and casual aesthetic, with indoor and outdoor seating providing the perfect locale for after-work drinks, leisurely weekend lunches, peak-hour feeds and laid-back Sunday sessions.
Fritzenberger’s core range of eats has been transplanted to the new Wilston haunt, with the likes of the classic Fritzen Burger, fried-chicken burger and pulled-pork burger up for grabs alongside loaded frites (Fritzenberger’s signature salts are now available on your table), wings, house-made dill pickles, shakes and mac’n’cheese balls. A new range of sharing salads and ice-creams doused in hot sauce have launched in time for the opening as well, while monthly specials will offer a regular shake-up. Although you won’t find stainless-steel brewing apparatus at Fritzenberger Wilston, you’ll still be able to sip on the fresh products of Petrie Terrace’s tanks. Eight of the bar’s in-house brews are available (alongside rotating labels), with brand-new steins and growlers on hand for those partial to a sudsy chug. Craft beer tins and bottles are also available, as well as Fonzie Abbott coffee and a bar full of spirits, cocktails and wines for anyone saving stomach space for a second serve of frites.
Fritzenberger Wilston is opening at 11:00 am on Saturday September 15. For more details, wander over to the Stumble Guide.
