East Meets West at EST. 33 Thai Craft Brewery and Kitchen
A blending of cultures comes together on the fourth floor of Brickell City Centre at EST. 33 Thai Craft Brewery and Kitchen. The top brewer in Thailand, Boon Rawd Brewery Company Limited (producer of Singha and Leo beers), is behind the first EST. 33 concept outside of its home market.
The interior of the restaurant boasts seven fermentation vessels and seven serving tanks for craft beers that honor Thai traditions but will go down well in South Florida. Offerings include the Legend Lager (a smooth, golden brew with malted barley and noble hops from Europe); and the Aromatic Snowy (a summer wheat beer brewed with fresh orange peels and coriander seeds).
The menu at EST. 33 meshes Asian flavors with old-fashioned American barbecue techniques that include a smoker brimming with hickory wood. Among the smoked treats: Beer-brined Pork Shoulder, Char Sui Pork Ribs, Thai Lemongrass Chicken, and Thai Spice-Rubbed Beef Brisket. Appetizers at EST. 33 extend the mix of influences, with everything from Crispy Shrimp Pot Stickers, Thai Spice Crab Cake and Beef Jerky topped with sweet and sour pickles.
