Australian pub goers now have the chance to curate the ultimate pub menu as part of YakBrewing’s nation-wide search for the country’s best pub meals, which will see the winning mealsbrought together under one roof.

The competition is designed to help promote the great experience of dining at your local pub andsupport these Aussie institutions.

The Aussie public are asked to vote for their favourite pub meal across five iconic categories including:

  • Chicken Parmigiana or Chicken Schnitzel (depending on what state you’re in)
  • Steak
  • Burger
  • Fish and Chips
  • Pork Ribs

The winning dishes in each category will come together this spring/summer, featuring at a pop-uprestaurant in Melbourne called The Hungry Yak, which will offer the ultimate pub experience andplate up the nation’s top pub meals as vote by the public.

Whether it’s an outback roadhouse or inner-city gastro-pub, punters and publicans have thechance to put their best foot – or parma – forward, and celebrate what makes their pub meal greatby nominating their favourite.

The public vote will be open from September 1 through to September 30, with the top three mealsin each category then reviewed and judged by a panel of experts led by Australian comedian andpub food aficionado, Harley Breen.

Breen said, “I’ve been a touring comedian for 19 years so I’ve definitely eaten more than my fairshare of pub meals. Touring can be exhausting, what makes it easier is knowing you can get agood feed somewhere.

Whether it’s a show in a regional town or in a city, the one place that anytouring artist knows they can get a good feed, a great beer and a yarn with a local is the Aussiepub.

“When the team at Yak asked me to lead the ultimate ‘taste’ test, I thought to myself “Wait, youwant me to travel Australia drinking beer, eating food and meeting Aussies in pubs? Soundshorrible, I’ll do it!” It honestly couldn’t be a more perfect gig for me. I’m absolutely ready to hit theroad to celebrate Aussie pubs, their meals and the people behind them.”

Yak Brewing Marketing Director, Chris Maxwell, added, “Pub meals are an iconic part of Australianculture, and we want to showcase what our country has to offer.

“Pubs are also where Yak’s diverse range of brews are often enjoyed, so it made sense to launch this hunt to not only support Aussie pubs, but hero the pub experience and meals that are servedalongside our beers. Finding the nation’s best pub meals is a way for us to give Australia’s bestthe attention they deserve, with the right beer to go with it.”

The shortlisted venues will be announced in October, with the winners in each category comingtogether for The Hungry Yak pop-up pub later this year.
