Moreton Bay Brewery Hop

Take the letters of the suburb name Brendale – mix them up – and what do you get? BEERLAND.

How fitting is that for the suburb that has the City of Moreton Bay’s best craft breweries popping up throughout it’s industrial area?

Hip Hops, in The Shed precinct, has 21 beers on tap – all of which are brewed on the premises. They also concoct a couple of boozy seltzers, like Hard Sars.

Owner Shaun Reeves stocks only Queensland artisanal products and makes every effort to use local produce in the kitchen too. Their brews spill over onto the menu with beer battered frickles and onion rings among the offerings.

Walking distance away is Brendale Brewing Company. Ryan McCausland is behind the bar and brews, named after local streets, such as the popular South Pine Pale Ale.

They have food trucks on rotation and love to take a happy snap of furry visitors for their Doggos of Brendale wall.

Tannins Brew is a brooding nano-brewery nearby, where owner David Johansen likes to push the craft beer boundaries. Some of his ever-changing taps include smoked pineapple pale ale and Raro Sour.

The chef whips up incredibly tasty smoked meats, some of Brissy’s best burgers and a tomahawk that has to be seen – and tasted – to be believed.

There’s brewing of a different and non-alcoholic kind at Cubbyhouse Coffee, home to Pinnacle Brews. Vats out the back bubble up sparkling iced teas and cold brew coffee. The chilly brews are turned into incredible drinks front of house, like their quirky, coffee take on a Dark and Stormy.
