Brisbane’s bayside scored a craft-beer brewery of its own when Hudson Brewing opened the doors to its production facility and taproom in Wynnum in December 2020. The brainchild of Richard Hudson, this newest entrant to Brisbane’s burgeoning brewing scene sits in the heart of an industrial estate on Gibbs Street. With help from his wife Sarah and blue heeler Magoo, Richard is looking to build Hudson Brewing into an unpretentious hub for craft-beer lovers. At maximum output, the full-scale production brewery can reach an estimated 200,000 litres of beer per year, though Richard is eager to gently scale up capacity depending on demand surrounding tours, tastings and events. Hudson Brewing’s 50-seater taproom boast eight beers on tap, including a core range consisting of a pale ale, IPA, larger and a session ale, while a seasonal release sour will feature alongside small-batch brews. Rotating food trucks park at Hudson Brewing every Friday and Saturday, helping hop heads line their stomach with tasty street eats.
