Newstead Brewing Co. Brisbane Airport
Any conversation about Brisbane’s craft-beer brewing scene has to include mention of Newstead Brewing Co. As one of Brisbane’s independent brewing scene’s first-wave operators, Newstead has become firmly ingrained in the city’s small-batch beer culture since opening its first brewpub on Doggett Street in 2013 (which was followed by with a Milton expansion in 2017). The brewery put its best foot forward once more in 2021 when it opened a brand-new taphouse at Brisbane Airport’s domestic terminal. Set just beyond the security checkpoint – a short trot to the Virgin and Jetstar gates – Newstead Brewing Co.’s new location welcomes and farewells interstate travellers with a signature selection of suds and inclusive menu of eats. The 350-sqm taproom (the largest food and beverage space in the domestic terminal) comes fully equipped with 12 taps, showcasing Newstead Brewing Co.’s core range as well as an assortment of special limited-edition releases. Guests to the 120-capacity venue will also be able to enjoy a pre- or post-flight feed from the menu, which includes an all-day offering and elevated pub-style classics – think pizzas, chicken parmigiana, dry-rub wings, smoky grilled-beef burgers and smoked short rib, plus a host of nourishing gluten-free and vegan options.
