After conquering Sydney and New South Wales’ central coast, 4 Pines has brought its brand of standalone bars to Queensland. The popular craft-beer brewer opened its Brisbane location in December 2019, building a rustic, rockin’ boozer at the base of Nomads Hostel on Edward Street. Every product line from 4 Pines is available off tap, from the mainstay pale pacific ales to the nitro stout and hefeweizen. Non-beer drinkers are amply catered for, with a batch of vino from Riot Wine Co. also available on tap, as well as a selective handful of spirits on the back bar. The fare encompasses familiar favourites, but the quality sits several notches above your run-of-the-mill pub grub. The pork belly is slow cooked in 4 Pines nitro stour, the fish n’ chips batter uses 4 Pines kolsch, and the beef short ribs is lovingly bathed and cooked in 4 Pines hefeweizen. Those seeking a lighter lunch option can choose from a range of six bowls and salads, with fillings ranging from char-grilled minute steak, crispy felafel, classic Ceasar and Greek salads.
