SWMBO and I are heading up the coast to catch up with assorted rellies and ankle biters, staying at Alex Headland for 3 nights. I'm planning to get a bit of elbow work in on the side as well and wondering if the SCB bar/outlet is still open at Maroochydore and what it's called, and if anyone had been there recently. Also opening hours. Is it the one on the same street as the Big Top shopping centre?

Any other suggestions on the middle part of the Coast?

Yeah, it's still there. It's called the Sunshine Coast Brewery Bar. No take aways though, you'll have to go up to the brewery if you want some bottles. It is on the corner of Ocean St and Horton Pde, right where the Big Top centre is.

Any other suggestions on the middle part of the Coast?
For a beer?

None that I can think of. There is one bar in Mooloolaba that had Stone and Wood on tap, can't remember it's name, but it's upstairs along the esplanade. Other than that, nothing really. It may have changed in the past 12 months, but I don't know.

that's Beach Bar & Grill. They still had S&W a few weeks ago when I was there last.

the brewery bar is fcking great, and is pretty much the only place worth going to for the beer. The food is excellent too.

There is also the pig n whistle across the road (plaza side) which has burleigh spitfire IPA.

Thanks, I'll get in there when I get a chance. Is the Wig n Pisshole the one at the plaza itself overlooking the canal? I've looked in there before and only megaswill but will have another look, I'll be shopping for socks and knickers as well so heading for the Plaza in any case.

^ yes that's the one. It is only megaswill (plus "spitfire"), and the brewery bar is directly across the road so really, why would you bother ;)

Wow going to check this place out next time I'm up at the Sunny Coast...I go to a jetski event every year and we end up going to the Northshore Tavern and the best they had on tap was James Squire Pale Ale

So i'ts Burleigh that brews that Pig n Whistle Spitfire IPA eh? Been wondering, for it's a decent brew, but surely isn't the English Spitfire.

In an earlier thread someone pointed out that its a bitter, brewed to P&W's specs, they came up with the name and decided to call it an IPA.
This is just hearsay though.

Nor is it an IPA. Don't quote me on it, but I believe that it is their 'My Wife's Bitter' re-branded. Very drinkable beer, plus, the Pig always had it as their 'beer of the month' and pints were only $7

Last year I dobbed them in to Shepherd Neame as I'm sure they have a trademark on Spitfire, however the lass was amused and said they didn't know or have anything to do with Burleigh Brewing. So presumably Burleigh haven't been served a notice yet :p

I heard some bad reports from the Pig's Brisbane operation so interested to try the current batch. Is it on beer engine or just regular font?

The only problem is that spitfire is listed as 5% ABV, and my wifes bitter is 4.8%.

regular font.
last time I had it, it tasted like stuffing a fist full of dry crystal directly into my mouth.

Great range but could only try the IPA and the Rye PA - Perfect examples. They know their craft.

Food superb and I class myself as a bit of a chef. Get in there if you are up the coast.

Looks like they like to serve icy cold probably nice if you allow to warm up for half an hour.

Just heard that Jon Lord ace keyboard and Hammond organ player from Deep Purple has passed away.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand it's closed.

One less reason to go to the coast.

While the world didn't officially end in 2012, unfortunately it did for the Brewery Bar & Restaurant in Maroochydore when our lease finished. Thanks to our loyal drinkers for their support over the last 2 years and we look forward to seeing you again soon when we reopen our bar & restaurant at the brewery in Kunda Park. In the mean time, the beers are available on tap at the brewery each Friday afternoon from 4pm, starting today. Be sure to like the Sunshine Coast Brewery fb page for more details of our re-opening.
this could explain why their beers have been popping up in other places?
