Brisbane's Secret Suburban Breweries

Hidden away in the suburban warehouse districts of Brisbane can be found a smattering of secret microbreweries. 

Known only to clued-in locals, each one brews its own brand of fully hand-crafted beer for the tasting. 

Hidden behind roller doors, some of which pop open on weekends and spring to life with food trucks and live music, they make a great relaxed alternative to hitting up the inner city bars.
