For The Beer Connoisseur
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!

THE LOCAL FLAVOUR
Brisbane Brewing Co just dropped their new menu and our tastebuds are tingling!
Head over to the West End region, these new flavour sensations are sure to get you fired up.
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.
