The Charming Squire

The Charming Squire (James Squires bar) in Southport, Brisbane

Good meeting spot for after work beers. All the standard range on tap plus exclusive beers. On my trip I had the Capt’n Steamo, a Californian Common Ale.

Pig N Whistle Traditional British Pub in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane

First stop on a brief tour of Brisbane. Walls are decorated with traditional British ales yet there is none on tap. All standard CUB brews across 14 taps including a couple of wine taps. Menu looks like classic English fair with pies and sausages and modern Aussie pub classics. On my trip I had a pint of Stone & Wood.
