Sweet Amber Brew Cafe
Funnily enough, the inspiration for Sweet Amber Brew Cafe came from a bottle shop named “Plonk”. Initially Dane Adkins and Nicole Berry wanted to open a takeaway bottle shop, but after discovering too many licensing hurdles, they decided to open a small cafe-bar instead.
Beer is a main focus. It’s featured everywhere, including in the kitchen’s recipes.
The tiger bread is made using stout; the dips contain India pale ales and pilsners; and each meal is matched with a local beer. Adkins and Berry quench their customers’ thirst with four rotating taps and a large, triple-door fridge crammed with bottled beers and ciders.
Homely couch seating is contrasted with high bench tables that spill out onto the main street. The restaurant flows through to a beer garden where you can bathe in the sun at one of many picnic tables.
Weekly events include a wood-fired pizza night; art exhibitions; a fire pit and marshmallows in the winter. There are also brew days by local brewers and appearances by local food trucks to add variety to the menu.
