More beer hall and gastropub than regular cafe or bar.
South Brisbane's newest watering hole happily shortens its name from Saccharomyces Beer Cafe to SBC — and after a few drinks, you probably will too. Tasting whatever the taps happen to be pouring that week is the main attraction, after all. Ten options are on offer at a time, though it might be best not to try all of them in one visit.
Don't stress — you'll want to return to the Fish Lane hangout's sleek interiors, and not just when the kegs are switched over. Knocking back tasty craft beverages isn't all SBC is about. There's also the food that helps the spot earn the cafe part of its moniker, even if it's more of a beer hall or a gastropub than a regular eatery.
With a rotating menu, feasting is an ever-changing affair here as well. Expect whatever is in season to pop up, though chef Johanna Possumah isn't shy about throwing in some Indonesian flavour. Candied bacon rosettes on a hotcake bed with maple infused berries don't just sound like the breakfast special your mornings need, but look and taste the part too. Later in the day, wings, tacos, sliders and more feature — aka the perfect nosh to accompany a freshly poured pint, or a few.
