“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife and I have been to The Brewery on a few occasions over the past four years and it never fails to impress. This is a great opportunity to take a break from your usual beverage and try one of their beers brewed on site. Whatever your preference they'll have a beer for your taste. For bar food there is a reasonable choice to suit everyone and I'd recommend the smoked chicken pizza. Dining in the restaurant is also a very pleasant experience and we've found the food to be of good quality. The building itself is very impressive with a great mix of the old and the new. Information panels and prints show the history of the building and also the brewing process that is used on site. This is a popular haunt for after work drinks on a Friday afternoon with a hectic but friendly atmosphere. The Brewery even have their own merchandising so if you are that way inclined you can take a t-shirt with you to commemorate your visit.

“Half price pizza!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Loved the ambience, good choice of beer. Ordered a pizza and found out it was half price, very nice bonus! Weather was lousy, couldn't sit outside, looked fabulous on patio.

“Food”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

The staff were not very accommodating and only as friendly as they needed to be. Everyone who ordered the pork dish on our table agreed that the sauce was too sweet and ruined the meal. Decent sized meals. Just another reminder that the Townsville food scene is not on par with the major cities in Australia.

“Beer Heaven”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Try the 9 beer taster selection for Aus $12 and you won't be disapointed.
Food nice and tasty too. Nice surroundings and pleasant, helpful staff. There is not much else in the area and you should give this olace a try.

“A successful test run at The Brewery's restaurant”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The Brewery is a boutique beer house with an attached restaurant located in the old Post Office building in Townsville. Beers are made on-site and casual meals are available over the bar (good pizzas!) but, on this visit, I tried out the formal restaurant on the right-hand front of the building. The atmosphere on a Friday night was good - the buzz from the crowded bar area is a great background to the restaurant. The waitresses were very professional and the service was generally quick for both beer and drinks. The menu is not huge but is reasonably diverse with main courses around the $25-$30 mark. We enjoyed trying out the various beers with our meal. The meal was very well presented and showed a lot of attention to detail by the chef. A good night out.
