If you prefer your alcoholic beverages in ale or lager form, you've probably noticed a couple of trends taking over Brisbane. Every corner of the city seems to house a craft beer bar, and a growing number make their own tasty tipples on the premises.
West End watering hole The Catchment Brewing Co. is the latest to join the ranks of both — and is the newest cause for craft beer celebration. Another place serving ice-cold pints not only poured fresh from the keg, but also brewed on site? Yeah, you won't hear us complaining.
Indeed, it should be smiles all round at the Boundary Street venue, which boasts two levels of bars and two laneway hangout areas within its renovated art deco confines. The relaxed atmosphere is enough to make patrons want to stay all day — and that's before you get to the menus.
The food offering features favourite gastropub fare, such as pizzas, burgers and sharing platters — aka the ideal bites to line the stomach with. With an upstairs wine bar, the drinks menu focuses on wine. as well as a mix of local and international beer alongside Catchment's in-house Colonial Ale and Pale Select Ale. Both beers — one light and golden, the other flavoursome and fruity — will start brewing in the coming weeks, much to the delight of the city's craft ale aficionados. That means eager patrons can visit now to check out the surroundings, and then return later for the ultimate beer and bliss combination.
Find The Catchment Brewing Co. at 150 Boundary Street, West End, or visit their website and Facebook page for more information.
