On a Winters Day in Brisbane
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.
Here are the top five picks for each time of the day …

Beer. It has come a long way from the cold cans buried beneath the half-melted ice of the family cooler. Bars now boast such a broad range of brews, beers and ales, that approaching the bar has become a challenge all unto itself. We’ve all been there. Fumbling over pronunciations, trying desperately to decipher the fifty something names of brews, all the while growing increasingly conscious of the bartenders silent judgement. 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.
