Sea Legs Is Kangaroo Point's New Inner-City Craft Brewery and Pub
Pair beers brewed on site with pizzas, burgers, build-your-own charcuterie boards and views of the Story Bridge.
The year has barely started, but one Brisbane's favourite trends is already in full swing, with the city becoming home to a brand new craft brewery.
Setting up shop just a stone's throw away from the Story Bridge, Sea Legs Brewing Co has transformed a former industrial warehouse into Kangaroo Point's newest watering hole. Created by five engineering mates, including co-owner Dave Machin, it boasts five of its own beers as well as the facilities to brew plenty more — with Jon Fuchs overseeing the hoppy drops as head brewer.
If you're a beer nerd, you'll be excited to know that the spot features a 15-hectolitre brewery that can ferment up to a 9000 litres, as well as an extra 100-litre setup for speciality, seasonal and experimental tipples. And while Sea Legs is focused on its tropical lager, golden ale, pale ale and IPA at present, as well as an interesting sounding oats and lactose-infused milk stout, one-off batches are on the agenda down the track.
The inner-city newcomer also serves up the type of bar food that pairs well with a cold one (or several), spanning seven kinds of pizza, three different burgers, katsu bao, fried chicken wings, haloumi chips and build-your-own charcuterie and cheese boards.
For those after a beverage that isn't beer, Sea Legs pours 17 different wines and four cocktail jugs as well.
Find Sea Legs Brewing Co at 89 Main Street, Kangaroo Point from 12–10pm Sunday to Thursday and 12pm–12am Friday and Saturday. Visit the brewery website for further details.
