Brisbane Brewing Co.
Brisbane Brewing Co. is a boutique craft beer brewery and bar. Tucked away down a laneway off of West End’s legendary Boundary Street, it is an institution to the local vibe.
Their range of award winning craft beers are brewed on site. These fresh drops are complemented by their innovative food menu, that’s designed to be shared, grazed or indulged as a main meal.
Their venue combines an airy beer garden and stylish interior with their open-plan brewery. Lace and laid back, Brisbane Brewing Co. is the perfect place for mid-week catch ups, Friday and Saturday nights out or a good old Sunday session.

“Kinda cool, nice outdoor seating. Food was good, not great, but good enough to enjoy a night out. Beers were, unsurprisingly, quite good. Had a bit too much of a hipster vibe for me but still nice.” – Michael Mccourt
Green Beacon Brewing Co.
Green Beacon Brewing Co. believes in the journey of innovation. Their mission is to create enjoyment whilst inspiring passion and loyalty. As a proudly independent brewery built on quality and integrity, and where flavour, balance and consistency are at the forefront; their beer provides a safe anchorage in any port.
And while they don’t do it for awards, it was great to be recognised as Champion Small Brewery at the 2017 Australian International Beer Awards & Champion Medium Brewery at the 2016 Craft Beer Awards.

“The beers are awesome. Really tasty craft beers I tried 4 different ones and they were all good. Had a Morton bay bug burger to eat. It was tasty. A little overpriced but good. The staff were friendly and the brewery itself was a cool place for a drink. The only thing that let it down was the prices. $12 for a pint that you brew there is too steep. Walked 1km back towards the city and got a pint of wood and grain for $8.9 at a local pub.” – Sambo Hambo
All Inn Brewing Co.
All Inn Brewing Co. is the brainchild of owner and head brewer Harley Goodacre. After years of working in breweries — in a wide range of roles from bottling hand to head brewer — Harley’s hunger to own his very own brewery had gotten the better of him.
Although he had very little capital and banks were unwilling to give him a loan, he made the impossible possible and accomplished his dream in 2012 with hand-crafted or repurposed tanks, salvaged equipment and scrap materials.
From there, it was full steam ahead and All Inn is now known as one of Brisbane’s foundation craft breweries. Over the years, they have steadily grown — now with a team of 9 — and upgraded a lot of their gear, to make even more and even better beer, which is now available in cans as well as kegs.

“Great selection of crafted beers, nice clean healthy food from the food truck. Had the sample paddle, was really tasty, they let you choose which beers you want to try. Doggie friendly, saw a few toddlers about, close to the train. Star trek pinball and a sit down Atari table is definitely a win. Will definitely be back!” – Dr. Sam Fitzgibbons
