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 four staples that are on tap all year round: BPA, (Brisbane Pale Ale), Brissy Pils, Driver 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 New Zealand this guy is absolutely nuts about fermented foods. In fact, he often steals space in the brewery off the brew team! We asked him to pick a favourite food and he said ALL OF IT! Mick is most often found in bed listening to the sound of sticky tape unrolling and reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
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!
When he’s not sampling the latest stock to arrive you can find him sipping on a negroni. A West End local Ed’s special talent is opening a beer with almost anything (his record’s a walnut). His lunch of choice for when he’s a bit dusty are rice paper rolls, so talk quietly if you ever see him chowing down on those.
Our newest brew team member Chris has made the problematic decision of being both a morning person and a night resulting in him having to drink many a coffee (black, no sugar) to remain awake. Chris’ beer journey started, like many, with his first sip of Sierra Nevada. These days he can be found experimenting with new brews, spending time with his son and eating oranges.
Like the rest of the team, Ian’s a big fan of a bahn mi for lunch, ideally followed up with some choc mint ice cream. His defining beer moment was that first sip of saison that sparked his love of sours. If he could pick any super power it would be the ability to control bacteria, virus and yeasts! You can often find Ian reading a new book on his back deck.
Our manager Smithy thinks there’s nothing better than kicking back with a fresh beer and a brand new book. You can most often find him relaxing outside in his garden with a plateful of home cooked spaghetti bolognaise. But you’ll never find him untying him shoes before taking them off, that’s something only psychos do!
