Great food (GF menu choices) ciders and stout/beers on tap with attentive service.... what could you ask for? An easy walk to the nightclubs if you want, but this is more of a bar/pub location, without the deafening 'Doof-Doof'

Atmosphere was ok, a bit noisy but it was a Saturday night. I like my beers and i tried a few and they were all very ordinary. I have been to many microbreweries in Australia and this beer was the worse. There is certainly room in Townsville for a decent pint, or should i say scooner.

I can thoroughly recommend The Brewery for a wedding reception. The details were well attended to, the food was delicious and the staff very professional. The food was delivered quickly to the tables, no one had to wait for drinks. The atmosphere was fantastic. Great night.

Such a great setting for enjoying an afternoon drink with family. The wings were very tasteful ! It is the original general post office and there are signs of a past era. Wait staff were exceptional!

After visiting the Brewery we were approached by a doorman with a beard. He stated to a friend remove your hat in an aggressive tone. Very unprofessional. Were in the premises does it say dress attire. Very embarrassing for all involved. The doorman needs retraining .
