Straddie Brewing Co opened the doors to the islands’s only brewery at Dunwich, North Stradbroke Island, on October 20 following a 12-month build.

Ideally situated just minutes from the Sealink Ferry Terminal in the beautiful township of Dunwich, the architecturally designed home of Straddie Brewing Co occupies three floors.

On the ground floor, double-height glass windows reveal stainless steel fermentation tanks and a 10hl brewhouse where the beer is brewed. Climbing the stairs to the first floor, visitors can appreciate several art installations, including a 3.6-metre-high wall mural by the Queensland artist Jarad Danby.

Although the 90-seat taproom is on level one, the sense of being part of a working brewery isn’t lost, as guests can look down into the brewhouse from an internal void.

The top floor panoramic roof deck seats another 90 – 100 with views of the Brisbane CBD skyline, the Glasshouse Mountains and the beautiful Redlands Coast by day, and an uninterrupted view of Straddie’s iconic sunsets. Also on the top floor is an exclusive ‘Brewery Caretakers Unit’ with views of Moreton Bay and Russell Island, which can be booked by the night on Airbnb.

Open five days a week – Thursday through to Monday – the brewery boasts two bars with 12 taps in each, pouring six core-range Straddie beers, plus a couple of craft beer guest taps. Point Lookout Lager, Amity Pale Ale, Myora Springs Gose, Manta Dark Lager, Jumpinpin IPA, and Mid Track Session Ale with taproom-only ‘Sandpit Series’ beers are constantly rotating. The brewery is now pouring Sandpit Series #1 – Rock Stout and Sandpit Series #2 – Super Pale. A hand-picked artisanal spirits, non-alcoholic spirits, and wine list, including Redlands Coast Distillery, Milton Rum, Lyres, and Sirromet ensures something for everyone to settle into island time.

A tapas-style selection of small and large plates makes up most of the sharing-style menu, with Neapolitan style hand-stretched pizzas and Straddie’s iconic seafood completing the culinary experience.
