Our Brews

We take pride in our Brisbane Brewing Co. beers being as fresh as they come. Brewed right on the premises in West End; you couldn’t get fresher! All our beers are preservative free and made with only barley, yeast, water and hops.

Apart from a number of carefully selected beers from other artisan breweries, we currently have eight of our own Brisbane Brewing Co. beers on tap – each with its own story and unique; carefully selected ingredients.  Our head-brewer Simeon Bonetti is passionate about his craft and always keen to talk to interested punters about what makes our beers so special.  A visit to Brisbane Brewing Co. will definitely leave you with a new appreciation of how good a beer can be when it is a product of a creative, hands-on approach.

Sunset

Light Golden Ale
ABV 2.7% IBU 20 available

Brewed to a lighter strength with a nod to its English heritage, this “summer ale” has full-flavour without the foot-fudge. It is brimming with fruity hop aroma, slightly honey and nutty with light caramel maltiness to balance. With five different specialty malts and three of the world’s most exciting new hops there’s just no holding back this pint sized darling. “Good as gold”

BPA

Brisbane Pale Ale
ABV 4.5% IBU 30 available

Our Aussie Pale Ale is bursting with the bold character of one of Australia’s most exciting “new world” hops - Galaxy. It packs plenty of punchy passionfruit, tropical and citrus flavours, with a gentle malty body to balance. This resinous hop character lingers long enough to see out its mild sweetness, a result of whole hop flowers infused into the beer via our brewery’s secret weapon - resident “Hopback” - Henry the Hoptapus. Quintessentially Queensland, refreshingly different, sessionable and full of flavour!

Brissy Pils

Organic Pilsner
ABV 4.9% IBU 20 available

This strong, export strength lager has its roots in old Bohemia but borrows a fresh leaf from the southern hemisphere. It begins with a hoppy herbal bouquet of NZ Wakaitu, builds up a medium malty body, but finishes with a crisp drying bitterness. The refined combination of drinkability and leisurely complexity provides the perfect end to a day out under the sun.

Brisbane Brewing Co. Sunshine Honey Wheat

Sunshine Honeywheat

Wheat Ale
ABV 5.2 IBU 15 available

A contemporary Australian take on a classic style, this cheeky ale is brewed with honey and over 50% wheat to create a breezy, light bodied beer for absolute refreshment. Sunshine shows off a creamed honey character with hints of orange, musk and jasmine tea, finishing crisp with a mild grainy aftertaste. The all Australian ingredients are delicate and delicious, and perfect for Brisbane’s balmy weather. “Everyone will think the sun shines out yer glass!”

Walker Texas Ranger

American India Pale Ale
ABV 6.3% IBU 45 available

Punching well above its weight with a reckless recipe for fruity, citrusy hop driven disaster, this beer is tempered just in time with its sensitive malty side. There’s a tip of the hat toward the hoppy beers of the West Coast, but this APA is “Texas-sized” with its resinous mouthfeel, and dusty dry finish. Righteously bitter with a strong body to balance, it breaks no rules - it is the rules!

Toasty Oat

Oatmeal Stout
ABV 5.6 IBU 15 available

Our breed of Oatmeal Stout follows the old tradition of adding a proportion of un-malted oats to the mash. This supplies it a luscious silkiness to start, which this proud stout stacks against rich roasty flavours and chocolate, vanilla highlights. A thick, silky oat mouth-feel provides for a long, luscious finish with a restrained alcohol content that will keep you going for miles.

Putin On The RIS

Russian Imperial Stout
ABV 10.1% IBU 70 available

Our imperial stout drinks with the courage of a stage performer and the grace of a Russian warship. A massive roasty, bitter, booze onslaught ensures. Dive in, you will be Vlad you did.

Founders: Mango Magnifico con Calor

Fruit Ale
ABV 10 available

Mango Magnifico is a high-gravity fruit beer brewed with mango and a touch of habaneros to add just the right amount of heat. The delicate flavors imparted by the sweet richness of the mango are punctuated perfectly by the subtle heat of the habaneros, proving that fruit beers do not have to be one-note. Each 750mL bottle of this 10% ABV ale is both sophisticated and refreshing, making it the perfect beer to share… or to keep all to yourself.

Mornington: ESB

ESB
ABV 6 available

Deep orange in colour, this ESB delivers sweet malt aromas of toffee and raspberry, under pinned by an earthy hop bouquet. On the palate, the initially sweet marmalade and fruit bun flavours give way to nuttiness and a restrained bitterness. The thirst- quenching finish will leave you ready for your next pint.

Newstead: I Can't Believe It's Not Dessert Beer!

Sour Imperial Coffee Porter
ABV 7% available

Dessert beers are a joke and so are you if you drink one. But don't worry, we've made a beer that will satisfy the latent twat in you, so you can massage your ego and tout snobbery all evening. This Imperial Porter was kettle soured with Lactobacillus Plantarum before fermentation, we then added molasses and some single origin cold pressed coffee for good measure. A cacophony of fruity esters, chocolate, coffee, raisins, grapefruit, lemon, spice and mint all assault your mouth hole. Lets face it, its GABS, just shove it in your gawker and move on.
