For the love of beer

3 Breweries you must try in Toowoomba

Research shows that brewing beer dates back more than 5000 years, wow! Today beer is still one of Australia’s most popular beverages and also a bit of a cultural icon for us Aussies, however, with consumers focus shifting more from quantity to quality these days, boutique breweries are popping up all over the country, including right here in Toowoomba.

Here’s 3 you must try


Great beers and an exceptional view, what a combination! Think lazy afternoon sessions in the sunshine sampling quality craft beers and delicious food and that sums up Monty’s Brewery which you will find in Highfields, just 10 minutes North of Toowoomba. Specialising in small batch brewing, Monty’s is new and spacious, with large open verandas the perfect location for lunch and dinner. The head brewer is available to chat to you about the beer making process and the variety on offer means you will have to make more than one visit to sample the best of Monty’s!


We love the location of the Brewhouse right in the heart of the CBD. Grab a table outside and watch the hustle and bustle of Toowoomba’s city day or night. This is a small independent brewery making beer that we rate as big on quality and taste. They serve a core range which includes their own Toowoomba Lager as well as popular seasonal beers. Adding a share platter to your beer tasting experience is a must here from the ever changing menu of in-house Chef’s the Flaming Nights. Wine and other beverage options are available too for non beer drinkers. Our tip: Try trivia night at Brewhouse for a fun night out.

Mouse Proof Brewery

Unique and moody with a semi industrial edge there is a lot to love about this Toowoomba Brewery whose founders nod to the agricultural cycle involved in beer production gives Mouse Proof Brewery a unique point of difference to admire. With a group of 6 friends behind the business their brewery is based on a purpose statement of ‘Beer. Your link to the land’ Yep, we’ll definitely drink to that! Retro décor, tasty burgers and tacos add to the experience of Mouse Proof, it’s unpretentious and popular with locals! That says something right there. Call in and check it out for yourself.
