The Woods is a cosy, comfortable and casual craft-beer bar and eatery from the team behind beery establishments The Oxford Taphouse and now-closed icon The Mill on Constance. Located in the heart of Mitchelton on its bustling Blackwood Street strip, The Woods pairs a low-key and approachable atmosphere with a phenomenal array of beers, wines, spirits and enticing fare. The fridge is filled with upwards of 60 lines of beer – on par with The Mill’s selection – featuring everything from pales and pilsners to stouts and saisons. Accessibility and approachability is key – adventurous drinkers will be amply catered for, but beer novices can also work with the bar team to find a brew to suit. The beer list will be chopped and changed regularly based on the whims of The Woods’ well-informed staff’s tastes, but you can expect brews to linger longer on the taps. Speaking of taps, the bar is equipped with ten – six for beers, one for ginger beer, one for cider and two pouring ready-to-sip kegged wine from Riot Wine Co. The drinks list boasts a savvy selection of wine varietals, including drops from Vinterloper’s Urban Winery Project pop-up and pet nats and blends from New Zealand’s Garage Project. The back bar has been fleshed out with a curated selection of Australian spirits, which funnel into a small hit-list of classic cocktails. As for the grub, it will change as often as the beer, with a list of all-day morsels (think popcorn chicken, sauteed chorizo, Thai fish cakes and fried pickles) sharing menu space with an ever rotating selection of lunch mains (chicken schnitzel, charred rump steak, vegan burgers and salads) and dinner dishes (braised lamb shanks, beetroot bourguignon, market fish with sautéed greens).
