How may we wet your whistle?
We pride ourselves on our range of beers. Brewed just down the road at our West End location — you couldn’t get fresher! All our beers are preservative free and made with only barley, yeast, water and hops.
We currently have eight of our own Brisbane Brewing Co. beers on tap — each with its own story and unique, carefully selected ingredients. Simeon Bonetti, our head brewer, is passionate about his craft and always keen to talk to interested punters about what makes our beers so special.
Once you’ve sampled the Brisbane Brewing Co. range, there’s a number of carefully selected craft beers from other artisan breweries for you to try. For those after something that’s not beer, we’ve also got an exciting cocktail menu and extensive wine list.
A visit to Brisbane Brewing Co. will leave you with a new appreciation of how good a beer can taste when it’s a product of a creative, hands-on approach.

Light Golden Ale
ABV 3.0% IBU 20
Good as gold
Brewed to a lighter strength with a nod to its English heritage, this “summer ale” has full-flavour without the foot-fudge. It is brimming with fruity hop aroma, slightly honey and nutty with light caramel maltiness to balance. With five different specialty malts and three of the world’s most exciting new hops there’s just no holding back this pint sized darling.
Brisbane Pale Ale
Australian Pale Ale
ABV 4.2% IBU 30
Brisbane Born and Bred!
Our Aussie Pale Ale is bursting with the bold character of one of Australia’s most exciting “new world” hops – Galaxy. It packs plenty of punchy passionfruit, tropical and citrus flavours, with a gentle malty body to balance. This resinous hop character lingers long enough to see out its mild sweetness, a result of whole hop flowers infused into the beer via our brewery’s secret weapon – resident “Hopback” – Henry the Hoptapus. Quintessentially Queensland, refreshingly different, sessionable and full of flavour!
A.I.B.A Silver Medal Winner 2017
ABV 4.9% IBU 20
This strong, export strength lager has its roots in old Bohemia but borrows a fresh leaf from the southern hemisphere. It begins with a hoppy herbal bouquet of NZ Wakaitu, builds up a medium malty body, but finishes with a crisp drying bitterness. The refined combination of drinkability and leisurely complexity provides the perfect end to a day out under the sun.
Walker Texas Ranger
American India Pale Ale
ABV 5.6% IBU 45
Drink this beer before it drinks you!
Punching well above its weight with a reckless recipe for fruity, citrusy hop driven disaster, this beer is tempered just in time with its sensitive malty side. There’s a tip of the hat toward the hoppy beers of the West Coast, but this APA is “Texas-sized” with its resinous mouthfeel, and dusty dry finish. Righteously bitter with a strong body to balance, it breaks no rules – it is the rules!

The Dogs Bollocks
Extra Special/Strong Bitter
ABV 6.1% IBU 35
This cheery UK style ale is busting with beery banter. A traditional balance between rich maltiness and fruity, herbal hop character makes it superbly quaffable. Many an English hop went into the copper to make it well proper! The classic bitter finish begs for the next sip, which is different to the last as its full flavour impact is felt as it warms up a bitter. “Hard core blimey!”
ABV 5.6% IBU 30
Our breed of Oatmeal Stout follows the old tradition of adding a proportion of un-malted oats to the mash. This supplies it a luscious silkiness to start, which this proud stout stacks against rich roasty flavours and chocolate, vanilla highlights. A thick, silky oat mouth-feel provides for a long, luscious finish with a restrained alcohol content that will keep you going for miles.
There’s NO Such Thing As “XPA”
American Pale Ale
ABV 5.5% IBU 48
In the gap between American Pale Ale and American IPAs (OK, I guess there is significant overlap between the two, but I’m pretty sure there’s also somehow a gap), there’s a new style begging to be invented. XPA. The ‘X’ is for eXtra, and it’s eXtra Pale (or eXtra hoppy?). It’s a bit like a pale ale, but you put more hops in and maybe less crystal malt. I mean, it’s definitely not just a pale ale with more hops and it’s absolutely not an IPA that your assistant brewer forgetfully left a couple of grain sacks out of. It’s kind of hard to nail down, but it is 100% a brand new style of its own, no question. This one is hoppy AF, we used a bunch of Idaho 7 hop hash, that’s another ‘X’ for eXtreme.
