Larraine Henning and Leigh Graham are passionate about pickles. And not just any pickle, but the housemade, fermented kind. “When you start having a beer and really salty, briny pickles with bread – it is just delicious,” Graham says.
A bar crawl with friends in the Canadian prairies (Henning’s homeland) “sampling random, homemade pickles with awesome beers” helped plant the seed for Ploughman. It’s a friendly, neighbourhood bar at the confluence of Alderley’s South Pine and Samford roads.
“We nearly named the bar ‘Pickles and Beer’ but thought Brisbane might not be ready for that just yet,” Henning laughs.
