Vault Brewing Company
Food & Drink

Explore a heritage brewpub with a difference

Forget staring at the wall, the TV screen or the mugs of other punters – inside Vault Brewing Company, your eyes will be glued to the fermenters behind the bar. The brews are made right before your beer-tinted glasses, meaning it’s only a distance of about five metres from ‘paddock’ to ‘plate’. In this short film by Empty Bucket Studios, brewery co-owner James Cain lovingly describes the unique space. Built in 1889 and previously inhabited by a number of banks, the Pennsylvanian brewpub boasts a 3628 kg vault door, which now guards the precious loot of kegs and ageing barrels behind the scenes. more

Two Trees moves to new location in South Brisbane

The lovely folk behind Two Trees espresso bar in West End have hopped one suburb over, opening a new space along Merivale Street in South Brisbane. Executing much of the handiwork themselves and recycling a lot of the original fit-out, Jordan and Mim have crafted a cafe of fresh white walls, warm wood and copper pipes. While the food licence should come through later this week, the cafe is still pouring its renowned espresso-based and cold-press coffee, as well as a Mörk hot chocolate sweetened with coconut blossom sugar. The new den’s seasonal menu may invigorate feelings of confusion and indecisiveness once launched, featuring dishes such as seasoned avocado on sourdough with housemade chipotle labneh, pulled pork sliders and cowboy baked beans with chorizo on sourdough. Check out Two Trees part two on The Street Photographer. Two Trees 29 Merivale Street, South Brisbane Ph: 0413… more
