Newstead Brewing Co. Brisbane Airport – Opening Soon
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 is set to put its best foot forward later this year when it opens a brand-new taphouse at Brisbane Airport’s domestic terminal on Thursday July 1. Set just beyond the security checkpoint – a short trot to the Virgin and Jetstar gates – Newstead Brewing Co.’s new location is looking to welcome and farewell interstate travellers with its signature selection of suds and inclusive menu of eats. The 350-sqm taproom (the largest food and beverage space in the domestic terminal) will come 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 Newstead’s full range of 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. Construction of Newstead Brewing Co.’s domestic terminal taproom is underway – keep your eyes peeled for an up-close look at the space come June.
