Burleigh Barrels Brewery
Love sipping from the source? Same! Burleigh Barrels Brewery is definitely one you need to know about. The coastal-cool venue is the handiwork of two beer-loving pals, Pat McCarthy and Peter Trimble alongside head brewer Chris Smith. A scattering of high and low tables fill the inside space, while the outdoor beer garden lures groups like moths to a flame. A far cry from typical ‘pub grub’, Burleigh Barrels has seriously upped the ante when it comes to its fare with hatted chef Meyjitte Boughenout at the helm. The menu meanders from pizzas in a mouth-watering array of combinations to bar snacks, salads, sides and burgers. Carnivorous folk will gravitate towards the smoked and braised meats section, which includes beef brisket, pulled pork and ribs slathered in the venue’s own signature sauces. Can’t decide? Opt for the board, which contains a little bit of everything. As for the brews, Burleigh Barrels features six of its own beers, ranging from a clean, easy-drinking lager to a full-bodied hazy IPA that explodes with hints of citrus and stonefruit. There’s also a rotating selection of guest taps featuring the likes of Precinct Brewing Co, Seven Mile Brewing Co, Helios Brewing Company and Black Hops Brewing. Burleigh Barrels also features live music from Friday through to Sunday. Walk in or book a table here.
