The winds of change..
Brisbane is like a fine bottle of wine; over time the quality improves, and each sip is greatly appreciated. Our city is continually evolving and maturing, producing breathtaking venues that never cease to amaze us. If it's not an entirely new concept, it's a renovation or re-brand. Let's just say, if Bris were a TV series it would either be Packed to the Rafters or Keeping Up With The Kardashians - wouldn't you agree? No month is the same in this town and we wouldn't have it any other way!
The saucy new menu has arrived [HOT HOT HOT]
Brewhouse has done it again! Not only are they serving up some of Queensland’s best brews, they’ve got a new menu too! Whether you’re dining alone or together, the new menu is sure to satisfy.
Soak it up
Everywhere you go, this city is bursting with talent. There's the local musos, chefs, artists and designers of every kind, you've got emergency service personal, builders, hairdressers, writers, barista's (low-key lifesavers) and the list goes on and on. We have an appreciation for those who do, what we can't. This week's Word On The Street is full of flavour & life. From enjoying tasty new bites created by hardworking chefs to being completely in awe of some of the city's most talented performers. Take the time to really enjoy the present, those feelings of satisfaction won't stick around for long so relish in the moment (no matter how big or small)!
99 Bottles of Beer on the wall
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.

Mammoth Meals From Tusk Til Dawn
Welcome to the ice age baby. The majestic woolly mammoth may have not have survived it, but their favourite bar sure did. I give you the Woolly Mammoth Alehouse!

Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder
Here’s some of our newest local brews to tantalize the taste buds, even for the beer hater. When it comes to locally made, aren’t we here in Queensland spoilt for choice? And our beer is continuing to dominate across the country with Gold Coast’s Black Hops winning Champion Small Brewery and Brisbane’s Green Beacon winning Champion Medium Brewery at the Australian International Brewery Awards. In fact there wasn’t a South East Queensland brewery that didn’t win a medal. It’s time to celebrate our award-winning beer.

Now that we've got mundane Monday out of the way we can focus on the rest of the week, what to do & where to go - Brisbane's a 'sleep when you're dead' kind of city and has plenty of events, eateries, new openings and happenings on offer for you to live (this weeks) life to it's fullest.

CRAFT BEERS, FOOD, MUSIC & GOOD TIMES
