Mammoth by name, mammoth by nature. Formerly known as ye ol’ Mustang Bar, the Fortitude Valley venue is likely the area’s largest beer hall, serving a huge range of craft beers on-tap alongside gourmet fare, games and live entertainment.
Hitting up the joint between 4pm and 6pm weekdays is recommended for the happiest hours possible, but you’ll still have fun afterwards if you’re stuck in the office until later. Here you’ll find raw brick, a giant stuffed mammoth and a craft bar with 23 beers on tap, all rotating with small-releases batches. You”ll never have to drink the same tipple twice.
Or, head upstairs to the Hamptons-style tropical oasis that is the Garden Bar, complete with greenery, clashing patterns, white wood and Pimms on tap. Use the fake green to play bocce or engage in a game of giant Jenga. If you can make it in during the day, the space is bright and airy — the roof shutters open to let the best of Brisbane’s sunshine in.
