Helios Brewing Company, Yeerongpilly

BRISBANE | Helios Brewing Company is a craft brewery in Yeerongpilly that has a focus on not just making great beer, but making the most of the Queensland sun. Founded by environmental engineers Scott Shomer, Tony Rutter, and Jayne Rutter, Helios has been designed with sustainability in mind. The brewery is powered by 59 solar panels and a 15-kilowatt inverter. All energy requirements are satisfied by this, and the brewery actually feeds energy back into the grid.

There’s a bar and seats downstairs, with the brewing equipment in full view, and a larger space upstairs to hang out. On tap, you’ll find Helios’ core range of six beers, and a rotating selection of limited releases. Tasting paddles are more generous than most, with decent pours of any four beers of your choice.

Hades, a 4.2% ABV stout, is a ripper if you’re looking for a lighter stout that isn’t going to knock you for six. It’s full flavoured, brewed with roasted cacao nibs and fresh vanilla beans. For something punchier, try the 9.0% ABV Zeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Double IPA. If beer isn’t your thing, there’s always a decent red, white, and rose going by the glass.

There’s no kitchen on site, but a rotating selection of local food trucks means that there’s always something tasty to eat if you’re feeling peckish.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
