    Has been in the works since early last year - super exciting for locals but agree the location isn't somewhere I'd be visiting otherwise...

    It's also pretty surprising that they're only installing a 50 hl brewery.... if they're planning on supplying all Australia with that, they may have their work cut out?

    Testing the market? Very interested what they can do with local ingredients, although their UK recipe are quite antipodean centric anyway. Curious to see what they're putting into the Aussie Punk IPA!

    "We are stoked to announce that we have settled on a kick-ass location in Brisbane's Murrarie area, right on the river!

    Brissie is awesome. We loved it from the moment we first set foot there. The passion and knowledge of the beer community is infectious. We can't wait to work along side and collaborate with the talented local breweries we're proud to call our peers in the Sunshine State.

    Check out why we chose Brisvegas as our Australian home base on our blog" this is from email i got

    I can't see why it would be any different to the Punk IPA produced in the UK or US...

    I am sure that they will showcase plenty of local ingredients in non-core beers though, given the fact that they've already done single hop IPAs with most of the popular southern hemisphere hops.

    How friggin arrogant. They haven't brewed a drop in Qld yet but they have already elevated themselves to at least the equal of other local breweries.

    For Christ's sake people, don't get sucked in to their PR.

    James (founder) of BrewDog has visited most of the craft breweries and bars in Brisbane worth having a beer at in the past year. Apparently he was very happy to spend time chatting about beer things and hung around for a brew day at one.

    I'm happy to stick up for the small independent producers but I'm not sure what isn't admirable about BrewDog's success? They've had an immense influence on the industry and especially some of the most successful local breweries.

    No-one else can force you to like their beer but they obviously know how to make countless quality beers.

    Brewdog's success has been built on some very slick PR fakery about a couple of oh-so-cool hispters taking on the establishment and stirring up controversy and outrage. It wins them heaps of free publicity and thousands of gullible followers.

    They'll set up a bar or two in Qld and import container loads of their beer which people will assume is locally brewed.

    This is a big business operation masquerading as craft brewing.

    The only benefit I can see is if they use their below-the-line martketing techniques to force changes to way beer is taxed here (in comparison to wine).

    If you start to look at the details very little is going to be developed they are not going to build and own but lease and use crowd funding other peoples money this site was already planned for a development so whats new .
