Move over dive bars and gastropubs — there's a new kind of watering hole in town. That'd be the alehouse, home to foamy alcoholic liquids aplenty, plus all the delicious bites to eat that help the craft brews go down.
Indeed, Mr Edward's Alehouse & Kitchen champions its food as much as its drinks, as the venue's early morning opening hours and Euro-centric, share plate focused and slow-cooked-heavy menu makes plain. The charcuterie board of artisan cured meats and cheeses is the cream of the crop, and the perfect partner for the biggest selection of Coopers beer in Queensland, a special selection of Bacchus Brewing Co's dessert concoctions, or their signature sour pale ale cocktail (made with pale ale, of course).
The new addition to Edward Street — where else? — is also fond of creating a relaxed, rustic atmosphere in its little corner of the Botanic Gardens end of the CBD. Witness their tables made from wood recycled from old Queenslanders and wall covered in photos of its location more than a century ago for further laidback evidence as you're enjoying an ale or several.
