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

The competition is designed to help promote the great experience of dining at your local pub and support 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-up restaurant in Melbourne called The Hungry Yak, which will offer the ultimate pub experience and plate 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 the chance to put their best foot – or parma – forward, and celebrate what makes their pub meal great by nominating their favourite.

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

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