Drunken Speculation

MR | First Edition, July 2013

Craft beer lovers of Brisbane rejoice for I have exciting news. Well, more unverified rumour. Word is that Lion Co is looking at opening a microbrewery in South Bank. The project is obviously in very early stages and I looked online at the websites for South Bank Corp, Lion Co, James Squire and a prominent local architecture firm but couldn’t find a statement to confirm. Presumably, the new microbrewery is related to South Bank’s calling for tenders to bring a “craft beverage” concept to Grey Street, although “multiple tenancies” was thrown around, so possibly South Bank has agreed to a bigger concept, perhaps at the newly expanded BCEC (?). I would speculate that Lion is looking at a similar concept to the James Squire Brewhouse at the Portland Hotel in Melbourne or possibly like the Little Creatures Dining Hall in Fitzroy but that’s just a guess – this is Drunken Speculation, after all.

Here are the other highlights from last week:
