BrewDog, the world’s first carbon-negative brewery, has moved into Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, the cool neighbourhood. The Scottish-born brand brings the new bar to life in the neighbourhood’s heritage-listed Tranberg House, rubbing shoulders with See War and Co. building. Already the bar is a welcomed addition to the bustling nightlife of Brunswick Street.

Beer lovers will find 20 taps across session-strength pale ales and lagers to epic imperial stouts and sours, including the BrewDog & Friends’ range of guest local breweries. All BrewDog beers are sustainably made at their solar-powered Murrarie brewery and taproom and are 100% carbon-negative. Although, if you don’t drink beer, the bar stocks a selection of wines, spirits, non-alcoholic drinks, and cocktails.

As for the food, expect farm-to-table junk food. What does that mean? Well, on Wing Wednesday, you can get all-you-can-eat wings for $25. Half the menu will also be plant-based to satisfy every taste bud. Think vegan Reubens and chicken burgers. The other half includes grazing such as Korean loaded fries, calamari, and a range of pizzas.

“The opening of this new location really marks an exciting step forward in our Australian journey, and the perfect spot for us to continue quenching the thirst and wowing the taste buds of more craft beer aficionados,” said BrewDog Head of Operations, Calvin McDonald.

“By sharing 50% of profits with our crew, we’re setting the bar higher for hospitality workers everywhere, and it’s an initiative we can’t wait for the new Fortitude Valley crew to benefit from.”

BrewDog is a B-Corp-certified craft industry leader in sustainability, powering beer production across its Australian brewery using solar energy.

The brand’s commitment to producing environmentally friendly beer also extends to a variety of local initiatives, including packaging that’s 99% recyclable, donating used grain to farmers in Northern NSW and crafting their famous Lost Lager using recycled bread from Coles bakery.

BrewDog is also set to take part in a number of mammoth global sustainability initiatives in 2023 including the Lost Forest (named after their Lost Lager), a 9000-acre plot of land purchased by BrewDog to embark on one the UK’s largest reforestation initiatives. They also have a partnership with Eden Projects which is set to employ local villagers in communities across Africa, Asia and South America to facilitate the plantation of 1 million trees.

BrewDog Craft Beer Bar is open from 11 am til late every day. Book a table here.
