BrewDog Fortitude Valley
Not content with one Brisbane venue, BrewDog has opened a second River City location — a three-level Fortitude Valley beer bar on Brunswick Street.
November 29, 2022
After opening its first-ever Down Under venue in Brisbane back in 2019, which also doubles as its Australian base, Scottish craft beer behemoth BrewDog has now gone one better. The booze-loving company has also launched its second Aussie spot in the Sunshine State capital — courtesy of a three-level beer bar in Fortitude Valley.
Brisbanites keen on a BrewDog beer in a BrewDog bar can now pick between two locations. That said, BrewDog's Head of Australian Operations Calvin McDonald doesn't expect that it'll be a difficult choice. He loves the OG Brissie venue and is excited about the new Valley watering hole — but he also thinks that the Murarrie spot will continue to draw in eastsiders, while the new Brunswick Street digs will appeal to everyone else.
Folks keen on checking on BrewDog's Valley home will find it in the heritage-listed Tranberg House building across the road from the Valley Metro complex, nestling into all three levels, all with their own bars pouring brews from 20 taps each. On the entry level — from Brunswick Street — beer lovers will find a space that caters to 115–120 people, while the big drawcard is the beer hall-style lower-ground floor that'll fit around 120 folks as well. Then, up on the top storey, patrons will find two six-metre-long shuffleboard tables, as well as a space that'll be able to be used for functions.
Brews and food-wise, BrewDog is keeping doing what its doing — pouring its own beers, celebrating other local brewers, and sticking with a pub grub-heavy menu that spans pizzas, burgers, vegan eats and the like.
That includes serving up a 50-percent plant-based culinary lineup, complete with two-four-one vegan meals on Mondays, and doing $25 all-you-can-eat wings on Wednesdays.
