Following the approval of its $15-million Brewing Collaboration Centre, Brisbane Brew Partners’ proposed Morningside development is set to be the largest independent only tap garden in Australia.

Brisbane Brew Partners has acquired an additional 2,500 sqm site adjacent to their already approved brewing collaboration centre. They have already submitted a development application for the construction of the said project.




The current DA seeks the Council’s approval for a High Impact Industry, Shop, and Hotel. The development will serve as an extension of the previously approved application.

Plans for the Proposed Morningside Development

The existing approval for Brisbane Brew Partners involves a 200,000-litre capacity production for the facility.

In the current High Impact  Industry application, Brisbane Brew Partners is hoping that the Council’s will allow the facility to produce more than 200 tonnes of products per annum.

According to a town planning assessment report, the hotel part of the application is best described as a Taphouse that also serves meals to the general public. Such business is becoming more common in Brisbane’s burgeoning beer scene.

Although the DA involves an application for a hotel, the proposed development does not include any accommodation.

Plans for the expansion include the construction of a kitchen, bar, shop, amenities, and an outdoor dining area.

Local Support

Residents are supportive of the said development saying that Morningside and surrounding areas are growing and suburban breweries are great for the locals.

Previously, Council has approved a large-scale operation similar to the proposed development at 77 Metroplex Ave, Murarrie. Just like Brisbane Brew Partners’ application, the applicant for this project also sought Council’s approval to replace the approved Food and Drink Hotel component.

Council has allowed this application to proceed straight to public notification, without Information Request or similar. This means that the Council supports such a use in the Industrial Zone.
