Cracking beer choices to enjoy in a relaxed atmosphere. Brisket burger was a let down, overpowering spicy relish and at best a tablespoon of brisket. Need meat to bring the relish back into line. Will come back and try again.

We found this great spot from Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Great atmosphere, plenty of choice when it comes to craft beer and the lunch was delicious. Recommendations are the ribs, chicken wings and chips. Generous and super tasty.

The Grain Store Craft Beer Cafe, A specialised restaurant that is owned and operated by Kristy and Corey Crooks, has been restored to the beautiful Warehouse venue it once was. Located in Newcastle's new food and cafe hub of the Historic East End, with high ceilings, Art Deco tiling and timber flooring, it is the perfect site for the Craft Beer focused restaurant it now has. It oozes character and style, and it's walls tell a story. Situated on the corner of Scott & Telford St, it was built by J.T Toohey (Tooheys Brewery) in 1885. It was originally built as the Grain and keg storage facility, (Hence our Name) & acted as the Newcastle Depot. The original elevator shaft down to the underground basement is still there to this day and can be seen by customers. The Grain Store not only has a huge floor space inside, the new owners are excited to reveal the gorgeous indoor/outdoor Courtyard that many people never would have seen. A little 'Inner city Oasis' it is the perfect place to relax by yourself or with a group of friends. The Grain Store boasts a tap list totalling 21, featuring 100% independently owned and 100% Australian brewed, Craft Beers. This makes it one of the largest Craft Beer tap list in Australia. This allows us to always have the beer style of your liking available on tap at any given time to match up perfectly with our menu offerings. So whether it's a crisp pilsner, hoppy IPA, Smoked Porter or Dry stout, and everything else in between, it will be there for you to pair with our fresh, tasty food offering. We don't expect you to know everything about food & craft beer pairing. That's what our trained staff are for. We are very passionate about product knowledge and service when it comes to our food & Craft Beer and ensure that all our staff are dedicated to the cause! So come on down and allow us to share our knowledge and open your eyes to the world of Craft Beer and the amazing beer taste experiences and food pairing opportunities it can give you!
