It's easy to pass by Revel Brewing Co and not realise that it's there. Nestled into a small precinct near the river end of Oxford Street — aka the quieter end — it's one of Bulimba's hidden gems. But once you've been to its century-old heritage digs, sipped its brews, eaten its pizza and sat outside in its leafy beer garden, you won't forget Revel in a hurry.
Beer-wise, the eastside brewery serves up both core and limited ranges, with trusty pale ales, IPAs, summer ales and lagers sitting alongside more experimental tipples. It's that combo that has helped Revel win a slew of awards since its 2017 formation, including gongs from the Independent Brewers Association, Queensland Food and Wine Show Beer Awards, and Australian International Beer Awards.
For those eager to dine in, expect a range of Italian bites — including 11 types of pizza, pasta dishes such as spaghetti carbonara and gnocchi puttanesca, and tiramisu for dessert.
