Melt Brothers will be giving away free grilled cheese sandwiches in celebration of International Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day.

We only just found out that International Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is a thing, so you can imagine our surprise at this turn of events.

Technically, Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is on 12 April, but Melt Brothers — Brisbane’s first café dedicated entirely to grilled cheese sandwiches — is getting in a few days early on Saturday 8 April.

For two hours of power from 10am to noon, Melt Brothers will be giving away their infamous Mouse Trap (three cheese), Holy Cheesus (ham, cheese and relish), Hippie Cheese (vegetarian) and MC Cheesy (mac and cheese with maple bacon) sandwiches for free.

To claim your free sandwich, you’ll need to show them that you like their Facebook page, and follow their Instagram account.

Naturally, conditions apply — you can only claim one sandwich per head (and you must be present to order); sides and drinks are not included in the giveaway (although they will be available for purchase); and no substitutions or modifications will be permitted, because of the sheer volume of traffic they’re expecting.

If you can’t get to Melt Brothers in that two-hour window, don’t worry — they’ll be doing 10 per cent off for the rest of the day.

They’ll also have a DJ at the venue, supplying the soundtrack while you enjoy your melts.

Visit Melt Brothers at Shop 1, 88 Creek Street (Gresham Lane), Brisbane City between 10am and 12 noon on Saturday 8 April to claim your free grilled cheese sandwich!
