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 Bronze Medal Winner 2014
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!

Chilli Chocolate Porter
ABV 7.2% IBU 40
Our GABS brew FROM 2015 is a big bad voodoo daddy. Certainly some old-world alchemy went into this tricksy-sorta ale, with it’s toasty almost roasty porter-style there is a mind-bending cocoa character and a super fruity chili flavour to boot. The spicy sting is only mild though as this dark brew shows some lingering toothy sweetness. It is otherwise seriously savoury, and an especially lip-smacking 7.2% alcohol.
Jenny From the Bock
ABV 6.7% IBU 25
The second iteration for our famous Bocktoberfest. Big twist away from last year’s traditional bock. This one features a big whack of wheat and is fermented with a fruity, spicy weizen yeast! Bubblegum, banana and cloves match up with a malty, slightly boozy kick.
Honey Wheat Stout
ABV 5.2% IBU 15
Our longstanding staple, the gleaming golden “Sunshine” Honey Wheat beer, has been beamed up into the darkness and reveals itself now as “Starshine” – a subtle stout, adding a certain shade of grey to the core line up. It still shows off a fluffy, creamed honey and wheat character, now with an even drier, crisp roast character ready to take an edge off your dome all year round. A hint of fruity, citrussy hops add an aethereal glow to this stranger, sending the style in an unworldly direction. It’s a new season for this seriously cereal beer and the old Combine-Harvester, so keep an eye out for freaky crop circles in the top of your pint!
“All Noir, no char”
The Hills Cider
Cloudy Apple Cider
ABV 5% IBU N/A
Made from 100% Fresh Adelaide Hills Apples, fruit driven style, cloudy in colour, great acid backbone, vanilla, lime/sherbet characters shine through the palate that actually tastes like real apples! Well balanced, complex, clean, lightly carbonated cider that finishes dry and fresh.
