Best little beer haunt in Brisbane. Theyíre up to 9 taps now and their Weekend of Darkness is always one of the best events of the year. Even though they donít do food, they do have awesome cheese platters. Staff are always up for a chat and happy to let you sample a few.

The Scratch has to be one of the top craft beer bars in the world.

Visited on 30th March 2016. Got a train and walked it up the road. Itís not far from the XXXX brewery. Nice little bar, has a seating area outside which we found a table. Really good range of beers on tap. Some really interesting stuff we hadnít seen elsewhere. Staff were friendly. Prices not too bad either. Liked the place a lot. Probably up there with the best Brisbane has to offer.

Visited on a calm Thursday afternoon in August 2014. The place is located arount 25 minutes walk from the center of town in a pleasant neighborhood. The place itself was small but with an important thing, some very friendly and nice staff. (Hi Nick) Very knowledgable and fast service. Before ordering a beer I always got a sample, thatís a really great thing. They had 6 beers on tap in two sizes and a lot of interesting bottles. I really liked this relaxed place. Another good thing was that they had information about coming beers, a thing that is not that common, at least not in Sweden. A must place to visit in Brisbane.

Probably the bet of the new bars when I visited. Friendly staff, unpretenious atmosphere. Tap list is small, but well thought out and kept. Lots of bottle options.

Great neighborhood bar and very good for Brisbane. Definitely run by beer geeks but the crowd seemed more ímainstreamí. 5 taps on the go, all good stuff, and pricing is average to good ($6 for a 250ml Otways Black Pantha IPA). Staff wonít hesitate to pour a sample.

Visited on July 21, 2013.
Got there by car, a ride from a friend (thanks Dallas!).
Ate at the Indian place right next door before going in. Or so I thought, there was a line to get in! A Sunday at 5.30 pm...
Didnít have to wait that long though, perhaps 15-20 minutes or so.
Rather small place with indoors and outdoors seating. seems very popular.
The crew told me this was rather unusual to have such a crowd for a Sunday.
Black beer weekend when I was there, yay for me and my love for black beers!
To sum it up a little, small, crowded, very nice.
Serving crew was nice, friendly, fast and hard workers, and knowledgable about the beers.
I can see how this place is rated so highly and why I heard about it from others as a place I really needed to go to in BRisbane.
Going back I took the train to the city, but didnít find the place where I needed to tap my card to pay for the trip, once in the city couldnít get out since I hadnít tapped my card to start with. If going by train and not a local, pay more attention to it than I did.

Definitely my favourite bar in Brisbane. Only place I can go to where I get to taste the beers before buying, and it doesnít feel like youíre asking the staff to sell their grandmas. I have had some great beers on tap here in the last year - Nogne India Saison, Mikkeller Black Hole, Nogne Imperial Stout, Rogue Hazelnut Brown, Marin White Knuckle, the list goes on. Looking forward to 2013!

Been frequenting this place for months. A brilliant atmosphere with the right idea about beer. Awesome rotating kegs system, never seen a beer on tap in this place longer than 5 days straight, even if they have multiple kegs of the same beer. Average is probably 2 days for most kegs, sessionable ones blow a few times a night on the weekend. BYO food makes coming here a great change from most bars, and the selection is from over 100 beers apparently, and even if you get through most of those, they change a few frequently enough that thereíll always be something new to try on the menu. Love this place.
