If you can get somewhere in Fortitude Valley or New Farm or Newstead you will be near enough to these breweries; Green Beacon, Newstead Brewing, Range (highly recommend), Felons Brewing, Soapbox BeerHi all, I'm going to be in Brisbane for a week....late this month (March) and would like recommendations as to where to stay that is handy to breweries and bars that stock quality craft beer.
I am going Friday for my first look.. there has been massive hype from the non-beer crowds. FULL of people more or less constantly. They actually ran out of their own beer at one point. They have only recently installed more fermenters to keep up with demand which is amazing considering it only recently opened and they're already expanding.I was on Brisbane with work the last few days. I tried Felons, it's a swanky looking place on the river. The beer was rubbish. Really bland, catering for the wider market to recoup the investment I'd imagine.
