When you're at a bar deciding what to drink, is it easier to pick a sip when you're pouring the beverages yourself? That's a question that the new Tippler's Tap will answer. The Brisbane beer-loving venue is moving to a new 300-square-metre South Bank spot seven years after it first opened on Grey Street — and 11 years after it initially launched in its now-closed OG Newstead site, too — and a serve-your-own-beer setup will be a massive drawcard.

Shifting one shop over, Tippler's Tap South Bank 2.0 will feature 25 taps in total, all rotating their tipples. For those keen to pour their own pints, 14 will be dedicated to self-serve beers, and another four will be all about self-serve cocktails, using the Pour My Beer system for the first time in Brisbane.

The new site will welcome in patrons from Friday, June 2, complete with five 65-inch screens showing live sports to keep you entertained while knocking back drinks. Not a fan of AFL, NRL and the like? The TVs will be concentrated in half of the bar, with the other side all about hanging out after work, for lunch or just because — while eating Tippler's Tap's American-style bites, such as hot dogs, burgers, sliders, wings, onion rings, loaded fries and cheeseburger spring rolls, of course.

"When creating this new venue, I wanted to make a bar that my mates and I would want to drink at. The goal here was creating a sense of community around craft beer, sports and quality people, and that's exactly what I think we've achieved," says Tippler's Tap Managing Director Hayden Williams.

"Since we started, our main goal is to build strong relationships with brewers and locals, and this expansion has allowed us to do this on a much greater scale," Williams continues.

To launch the new digs, Tippler's Tap is throwing a party on opening day, complete with demonstrations from Slipstream Brewing, Black Flag Brewing and Aether Brewing — and samples. Doors open at 4pm, with demos from 6pm.

Find the new Tippler's Tap South Bank at 184 Grey Street, South Brisbane, from Friday, June 2 — open 11am–10pm Sunday–Thursday and 11am–12am Friday–Saturday.
