Sea Legs Brewing Co. Opens At Kangaroo Point

Kangaroo Point has another brewpub in town. Sea Legs Brewing Co. recently set up shop to further boost Brisbane’s profile as the fastest-growing craft beer destination in Queensland.

But the Sea Legs Brewing Co. site isn’t just a pub located on Main Street. Beneath the shop near the Story Bridge heritage site is a warehouse with a 15-hectolitre brewery system that can ferment 9,000 litres of different kinds of beers every day.

Co-owners Chris Davies, Jon Fuchs, Dave Machin, Harvey McKibbon and Tim Wyatt have been planning to open Sea Legs Brewing Co at Kangaroo Point three years ago. However, it took the group a while to secure council approvals.

Despite some delays and obstacles, construction was finally completed by the end of 2018. Finally, Sea Legs Brewing Co. opened its doors to the public in late December.

The bustling venue is close to other hangouts like the Brisbane Jazz Club and the Story Bridge Hotel. But Sea Legs Brewing Co. stands out because it brews its beers on site.

During its opening day, the pub offered more than 130 freshly-brewed batches of craft beer to its guests. Sea Legs Brewing Co. caters to all types of beer drinkers, wine lovers and even non-drinkers, with its lagers, IPAs, spirits, cocktails, and hand-selected wines. Aside from the drinks, the pub also serves burgers, wings, and hand-stretched pizzas.

Patrons can also buy bottles of brews at the brick-and-mortar store to enjoy at home. The owners also revealed they will be introducing experimental and seasonal beer flavours too.

Sea Legs is the first of more new dining and shopping sites opening on Main Street. Brisbane City Council has been pushing to bolster this part of the city as part of its improvement projects.
