I loved this cosy backstreet venue. Visited with fellow Ratebeerian Nate2g on 6th September 2015. Once past the kitchen a chilled intimate atmosphere is afforded by subdued décor and tungsten lighting. Friendly, knowledgeable staff dispense a beer range that eschews the ubiquitous in favour of the unusual - I especially liked Cavalier Cherry Sour. Delicious food, too - I thoroughly enjoyed my bowl of Grandma Kennedy’s chilli. Well worth the effort of finding - do visit while in Brisbane, you will not be disappointed.

Visited on a Friday afternoon in August 2014. This place is located very close to Green Beacon. The place itself was rather small and a bit dark but not too crowded. One could sit inside or outside.
They had 10 beers on tap and quite alot of bottles. The food was tasty, I had a chili.
Friendly and fast service. The audience was on the young and hip side. Still a nice place to visit.

Another solid addition to the Brisbane beer scene. The kitchen greets you walking in and the bar can be found further along in a rather dimly lit setting. Good options beer wise with local breweries and interstate offerings. Staff know their stuff. BBQ available out front. Appears to be a very popular hangout.

If the Scratch is relaxed and unpretentious this is the complete opposite. A thin air of detached cool permeates a rather drab setting. Still decent tap list. Bring your beard and unkempt hair, check shirt and hipster attitude and youll be fine.

A tiny little bar in an out of the way place, definitely worth the effort. I really like this place and take all my friends there. Food is great.

Visited July 20, 2013.
Pretty much around the corner from Green Beacon, walked over.
$10 minimum of you want to pay with a card.
Cozy place with some various seating indoors, also some outdoors seating under a tent like roof.
Nice tap selection, knowledgeable nice staff. I can see myself coming back if in Brisbane again.
Nice with a place where everyone drinks and enjoy craft beer and not a poker machine in sight (well, I didn’t see any).
Didn’t eat, but some mates had chicken wings that they raved about, seemed very nice.
Seems like a place where you can hang alone, with a mate, or with a group. First sat with my one mate, then joined up with the group of homebrewers that had taken seats outside.

Great plAce for a drink. Lots of different beers by the bottle. Ten tap beers change regularly. Food is simple but great to have with a beer or two.

Been here twice and have really enjoyed both tipples. Beautiful staff, some very difficult to find stuff in the bottles, and great chilli dogs makes it a winner. The first time I made the trip, the boys had a Feral tap takeover. Great to see!

Great little spot, good atmosphere, old school pinball machine and arcade machine. No TV’s. Cheerful Chicago street food and more locals than hipsters. Really is a lot to like here.

Brilliant little place with excellent Chicago style food. Onion rings are to die for, and pretty good value too, i lové the hot dog and steak sandwich, and all the sliders are delicious, but, to the beer! 11 great taps on offer, and you can taste any of the beers you like. Nothing but craft beer and there are almost 100 bottles on the menu. The manager and owner are both great people, both happy to chat with me on their first opening day. From what I’ve seen though they’re willing to chat with anyone if you love beer, only if they’re not busy running the place of course. Only been open two months now but I really like this place.
