Our beers are brewed fresh right here in West End Brisbane – making our beer as local as you can get!
Located on the legendary Boundary Street, the Brisbane Beer Co. Brewery features a hip bar and deli-style restaurant. All of our beers are preservative free and contain only the four key ingredients used in beer: barley, yeast, water and hops.
We’re constantly reinventing ourselves in a bid to retain our title as one of Queensland’s most awarded breweries. We have five staples that are on tap all year round: BPA, (Brisbane Pale Ale), Brissy PiIls, Sunset Light Golden Ale and Walker Texas Ranger.
We also brew at least three other beers at a time, that change according to season.
Punters are welcome to watch and interact with the brewing process. It all happens right in front of you, as you sample our award-winning beers. Tours are available, or you can even just have a chat with our head-brewer Brendan Chan, who works onsite.
Grant & Michelle Clark (Mr & Mrs)
Rumour has it that Michelle thought it would be easier to start a restaurant than cook for the whole family. Go figure. And Grant, instead of shying away from his one and only vice, he decided to surround himself with it. With over 11 years running their Brisbane businesses now under their belts, Michelle and Grant are passionate about everything they do. They love the beer, the food, their customers and their talented crew, and they can’t wait for the next 11 years.
Hailing from the great state of Victoria, this dreadlocked roof tiler come forester come chef now calls Brisbane home. He boasts the cutest child alive in little Frankie, and they can typically be found playing in parks and hanging out in museums together. And for what it’s worth, Pauly once worked on a Nicolas Cage film set and was in charge of painting the grass green.
Brendan Chan loves brewing so much he practically lives there. He thinks that beer is the best invention humankind has created, and who are we to argue with that. His favourite sports are extreme crochet and spearfishing (in no apparent order).He once ate 4 month old salted sea-cucumber guts in japan, and one day he will title his memoirs “Do what you Chan”.
Samo ‘shanks for the memories’ Stewart once owned a goldfish named Spaz. These days with a beautiful big IPA in one hand and any pizza topped with pineapple in the other, he is constantly losing his glasses, his pen and his mind. One day, Sammo hopes to become of pachycephalosaurus or an extra on Futurama.
Dallas spends his days drinking black, filter coffee and his nights sampling the best of beers to console him after Jack’s untimely demise in Titanic. Don’t ask us to try to decipher his handwriting, but his beery brain is ready to help you find your new favourite brew …just don’t ask him about his earlobes.
Ross is the newest additional to our brewing family. With a degree from Heriot Watt in brewing & distilling this man’s knowledge about all things fermentation is second to none! You can find him in the brewery drinking equal amounts of beer and coffee (and occasionally a water, but only if he’s feeling sensible). If weird flavour combinations are your thing, we caught him sneaking blue cheese into stout last week!
The no longer newest member of our Brewing team is a familiar face to the Brisbane beer scene. Henry’s ideal power would be immunity to caustic and if he could only take three things to a desert island it would be hops, malt and yeast! If you ever want a chat with this crew member Henry is most often found taking a cheeky nap in a bar after one too many of his favourite drinks… IPAs
