Sampling the goods at the Townsville Brewing Co.

So after a long drive up from Mackay to Townsville, we headed to the local brewery.  So we had contacted them in advance in the hope of being given a behind the scenes tour.  To our amazement, we had an email back accepting this.  So we met up with the head brewer, and were shown around.

We saw the huge, and i mean huge vats of alcohol being brewed.  from between 3 and 4 weeks, depending on the brew.  We we even told about there plans for expansion, and taken up stairs to see there incredible function room (see images below).

So after our tour, we had to taste their sample paddle $12 and provides you with around 2 pints of alcohol.  This paddle had a small sample of all the brews they make here at the Townsville Brewing Company.  You had the following;

  • Townsville Bitter Light
  • Townsville Premium Bitter
  • Bandito Loco
  • Belgium Blonde
  • Diggers Golden Ale
  • Needs Red Irish Ale
  • Flanagan Dry Irish Stout
  • Speciality

Townsville Brewing Co

Being the responsible driver, and still having a 2 hour drive to our accommodation for the next couple of nights only sampled a few of the beers.  I must admit, i did love the Townsville premium bitter, along with the speciality.

We had worked up an appetite on the drive up, so we had two sharing platters along with the terrine.  So we ate some food that i had never eaten before; soft shell crab and deep fried brie.  Along with food we had eaten many times, so pork and prawn spring roll, mushrooms, hummus, gherkins, and terrine.

We absolutely loved the duck wantons and the hoisin sauce.  The crispness and the sweetness of the sauce is just heaven on a plate., Tina however, loved the hummus (she loves a good hummus).

We would highly recommend coming to see the guys here at the Townsville Brewery, the food is delicious.  The home brewed alcohol caters for all whether you love bitter or stout.
