When Brisbane’s craft-beer scene was in its infancy, The Scratch Bar was there supporting it. Owners and die-hard beer-lovers Ben Nichols, Kieran Ryan and Patrick Shevlin opened The Scratch as an unpretentious haven for like-minded beer aficionados, carefully selecting a range of boutique, international and Australian beers to provide folk with an alternative to the beer produced by big corporations. With a strong focus on serving and sourcing quality, independent beers, The Scratch team is driven to inspire and educate folk about the story behind each beer. A well-crafted menu of bitters, wheat, lager, amber, porter, sours and stout is sure to satisfy any well-tuned taste bud. With large windows, polished floors, comfy vinyl couches and music humming, The Scratch offers the perfect spot to enjoy a beer and nibble on a cheese platter.
