Tannins Brew and Meat Me BBQ

Tannins Brew and Meat Me BBQ are two complementary businesses that share a spacious light-industrial site in the heart of Brendale. One half is a nanobrewery and bar, while the other is a barbecue joint with wide-reaching influences. Tannins Brew produces beers using a Nano X two-vessel system with two 160-litre fermenters, crafting beverages that are experimental and playful. The bar’s six taps pour an assortment of brews, ranging from accessible lagers and pale ales to more inventive sips like smoked pineapple pale ales and vanilla plum sours. With an artisanal licence at their disposal, Tannins Brew also slings Queensland-made booze like Milton Distillery rum, Wildflower Gin and vino from Witches Falls Winery. During the day Tannins Brew also serves coffee from Cavalier Coffee Roasters and brisket-and-cheese toasties. Down the other end, Meat Me BBQ dishes up a diverse selection of meaty morsels inspired by American, Brazilian and South Korean barbecue styles. Barbecue honey sesame wings, sweet-and-spicy slow-smoked wings and honey mustard salmon wings make way for smoked Texan beef chilli dogs, beef-and-bacon cheeseburgers, beef-shin tacos and a smoked brat of the day – and that’s not even the main event. House-smoked beef brisket, smoked pork cutlets, lamb shoulder and Carolina mustard-basted salmon are the showstoppers, best followed by a wedge of cheesecake or pie.
