Valley Hops Brewing, Fortitude Valley

BRISBANE | Valley Hops Brewing is a fully operating 15-hectolitre brewery located on the sixth floor rooftop of Cloudland. It’s an impressive space, with capacity for 300 people, lots of greenery, and views across to the CBD and the Story Bridge.

There’s 26 taps pouring the Valley Hops’ beers. That’s the core range, which is filled with accessible brews like a lager, pale ale, sour, and a few IPAs, as well as the limited brews coming off the venue’s pilot kit. Try the Fiesta Mango & Passionfruit Sour. It’s a 4.2% ABV fruited sour that’s perfect on a sunny, warm Brisbane day.

Tasting paddles aren’t available, but you can get 200ml pours if you want to try a few things, and staff are pretty happy to let you sample a few beers before committing.

If beer’s not your thing, there’s a decent selection of wines, spirits, and cocktails to keep you satisfied. For food, it’s things like wood-fired pizza, lamb kofta, pork ribs and sriracha, and salt and vinegar chicken wings.

If you’re interested in a behind the scenes look at things, Valley Hops runs brewery tours every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2pm. Tickets are $35 and get you a welcome schmiddy (370ml) of Exhibitionist Tropical Ale, guided ​tour of the Brewhouse and 6 ponies (200ml each) of the Valley Hops core range of beers.

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.
