Milton is About to Become Brisbane's Brewery Capital
The suburb is getting two new breweries.
For decades, the smell of beer has lingered over Milton. Thanks to the XXXX Brewery, that scent isn't about to fade any time soon. In fact, with two more breweries about to pop up in the inner-city suburb, the aroma of yeast and hops is only going to get stronger.
The first new addition is Aether Brewing, who've been planning their custom designed and built brewhouse for quite some time (as their Facebook page attests). Come October, they'll be showcasing their craft tipples on Railway Terrace, making and bottling drinks like their Event Horizon Oatmeal Stout and serving it in the restaurant and bar attached to the premises.
Then, when December rolls around, Newstead Brewing Co. will also be moving into the neighbourhood. You'll find them on Castlemaine Street opposite Suncorp Stadium, complete with an on-site bistro. Once the new location is completely up and running, it'll become Newstead's main base, with their current Doggett Street digs focusing on small-batch brews instead.
More details about both are bound to flood in as the year progresses. Point is, whatever kind of ale or lager you like, there's a pretty good chance you'll soon find it in Milton. Indeed, if hopping between bars sounds like your ideal way to while away an evening, you'll be able to cobble together quite the sizeable pub crawl itinerary while staying in just one suburb.
