Newstead Brewing Co

The Brisbane brewery's original location, inside a former 1940s bus depot.

Since late 2013, Newstead Brewing Co has been giving inner-north locals exactly what they want: beer, and plenty of it. Born and headquartered in a former 1940s bus depot, this beer-loving outfit helped establish Brisbane's now-thriving craft brew scene — and it might be an old hand by now, but it's a stalwart for a reason.

Open seven days a week in Doggett Street (with a second venue launching in Milton in 2017), Newstead Brewing's original location ensures that you know it's a brewery. The chrome, the smell, the warehouse decked out for sitting and sampling (and making beer, obviously) — it's a boozy haven. While a range of tipples are available in both bottles and cans, and you can opt for spirits or wine if you prefer, grabbing a pint from one of the 12 taps is highly recommended. Like all good breweries, the new and limited-edition selection is worth keeping an eye on; at the time of writing, Wiz pHizz Hoppy Sour just joined the lineup.

Food-wise, patrons can settle in not just for plenty of beers, but for a hefty meal, with the kitchen operating from 11.30am–10pm. Snacks include fries with smoke garlic soy aioli, karaage mushrooms and pulled pork wontons, and everything from prawn tostadas to cheese and charcuterie plates are available to share. Or, opt for four types of pizza, three kinds of taco, three varieties of burger, or mains such as chicken parmys, rib fillet and crispy skin salmon. Need some caffeine between brews? Toby's Estate Coffee is also on the menu.
