The Perfect Sunday

On a Winters Day in Brisbane

The Perfect Sunday

Winter in Brisbane is such a special time of year. The sky seems to shine extra blue; basking in the suns rays will warm you, not burn you; and the crisp mornings and nights make us Brisbanites so excited that we can actually wear those jumpers buried at the bottom of our wardrobe.

To me, the perfect Sunday on a winters day in Brisbane includes lots of food, trying out as many new restaurants, cafes and bars as possible, a wine or two, a dose of nature, and a good dose of sunshine.

Saccharomyces Beer Cafe

7 Days of Fish Lane Fun

Saccharomyces Beer Cafe

Beer. It has come a long way from the cold cans buried beneath the half-melted ice of the family cooler.

In the landscape of taverns, bars and pubs, it’s easy to be hard on oneself for not knowing your stouts from your ales. Enter Saccharomyces, a beer cafe that is bringing brews back to ground level.
