For The Beer Connoisseur

Brisbane Brewing Co | Beer Oasis
Tucked into a clandestine alley off of Boundary Street in West End there is an oasis for the beer connoisseur called the Brisbane Brewing Co. There is a view of the chefs cooking up generous platters of real “Low and Slow” BBQ in the front half of the dining room and views of the craft beer goodness filled brewing tanks in the back room. This place is a welcome find!

Brisbane's Best Boutique Bottle Shops

99 Bottles of Beer on the wall

Brisbane's Best Boutique Bottle Shops

It comes in handy in a pinch, the giant retail liquor store with the flashing neon lights may be cheap, quick and easy to pop into on your way home but sometimes that’s not always the case. Often there are some drinks you can’t get at mainstream outlets, an itch you can’t quite scratch, some thirsts you cant just quench with just regular brands. Sometimes you need a unique bottle shop to track down that really hard to find wine or your favourite craft beer, or to discover that weird liquor that you are unsure if it is alcohol as long as it tastes good. These local bottle shops often do offer more than look pretty but offer a variety of beer and wine tastings where you get to meet the homegrown brewers who are experts in all manners of liquor and spirits.
