A taste of the Sunshine Coast
Love craft beer? Then the Sunshine Coast Brewery is the place for you.

After the unfortunate closure of the Brewery Bar & Restaurant, the Sunshine Coast Brewery has now re-opened for lunch and drinks onsite at the Brewery in Kunda Park.

Great craft beer brewed on the Sunshine Coast

The Brewery offers an interesting variety of craft beers, including a Chilli Beer (warning: it is incredibly hot), Ginger Kegs Beer (made from local Buderim Ginger) and Glasshouse Rauch Beer (a smoked beer, which smells and tastes a bit like bacon), as well as more common styles like the Endeavour IPA, Porter and Czech Mate Pilsner. Some of the brews are seasonal and may not always be available, but with the great selection offered by the Brewery you won't be left disappointed.

On tap beers are available in a 330ml or 560ml size, whilst some beers come in a 330ml bottle only. The Brewery also offers a beer tasting paddle of 5 x 100ml samples of their on tap beers for only $12.50, which is great value and a smart choice if you want to try a selection of beers without ending up on the floor. There were also some non-alcoholic beverages, wine and a few spirits spotted behind the bar for those who perhaps aren't as keen on beer.

Tasty pub-style meals at reasonable prices

The lunch menu is currently very small and not exactly vegetarian friendly (the only option on the menu for vegetarians were the beer battered chips), but what they lack in volume, they make up for with tasty pub-style meals, reasonable prices and fast, friendly service. In my opinion, the menu should be viewed more as an accompaniment to the beer, which is the star of the show and should be the main reason for your visit.

The Brewery's opening hours are a little bit limited, with lunch and drinks available Wednesday-Saturday from 12-2pm. The bar stays open until 6pm on Fridays for drinks only. The Brewery also sell takeaway beers Monday-Saturday between 10am-3pm.

The Sunshine Coast Brewery is well worth a visit

Whilst the Sunshine Coast Brewery may not be at the most scenic of locations, the trip out to Kunda Park is more than worth it and a definite must visit for anyone interested in or curious about craft beer on the Sunshine Coast.

Hmm, I usually drink something to counter the effect of chilli. Think I'll pass on that one ;) I haven't been to the brewery before though. Good idea :)
