Drink your way through The City’s best watering holes on these boozy bar trails
If you’ve lived in Brisbane long enough, you’ve probably done your fair share of pub crawls (either guided or unguided). A great way to explore new and storied watering holes, these drinking adventures are always a fun time spent with friends. If you’re eager to get out and about in The City, new food festival Dine BNE City is putting on three boozy trails that’ll have you sipping, strolling and snacking your way through some of Brisbane’s best drinking spots. These aren’t your average pub crawls.
Sink frothy sips on this hopped-up beer trail
Delicious local brews, delectable chews and great venues await at the The Urban Craft Beer Crawl on Saturday May 22. This sudsy celebration gives brewski-loving revellers the chance to taste the latest and greatest Queensland craft beers, as well as a few new ice-cold concoctions. Bring your comfy walking shoes – you’ll be hitting up places like Embassy Hotel, Miss Demeanour, Red Hook, Super Whatnot, The Gresham and more. This is one super-charged craft-beer experience that you won’t want to miss, so grab a ticket here.
Become a wine expert on this grape-juice crawl
Calling all oenophiles – on Saturday May 15, you have the chance to taste, walk and explore the city with the Urban Wine Walk. This cellar-door trail is the ultimate self-guided wine-tasting experience, pairing 14 venues in The City with 14 Australian winemakers. All you have to do is decide what venue you’d like to start from, pop on your best walking shoes and enjoy an afternoon of tasting top-notch wines at a hand-picked selection of local bars and restaurants. Highlights of the trail include Alba Bar & Deli (featuring Western Australia’s Vino Volta), City Winery (featuring local Gerler Wines), Greenglass (featuring La Petite Mort from Queensland), Walter’s Steakhouse and Wine Bar (featuring Symphony Hills from Queensland), and COPPA (featuring First Drop Wines from South Australia). Grab a ticket here.
Extend happy hour with this cocktail adventure
Did someone say happy hour? If you’re thirsty for a top-notch tipple then make tracks to the Urban Cocktail Trail on Saturday May 29. A curated group of top-tier city bars (think Alba Bar & Deli , COPPA, Super Whatnot, The Gresham, Miss Demeanour, John Mills Himself and more) have each nominated a signature cocktail for you to enjoy on this self-guided cocktail trail. Kick off the afternoon with a delectable snack and a complimentary cocktail at your starting location before embarking on your self-guided journey to redeem your six cocktails vouchers. We wouldn’t go planning on an early morning start on Sunday. Nab your ticket here.
