The Scratch, Brisbane

5.0
#37 of 80 in Nightlife in Brisbane
Beer bar ‘The Scratch’ lurks in the shadow of Queensland’s brewing behemoth. We aim to support the independent and encourage the rejection of brand loyalty in favour of a constantly rotating draught and bottled beer menu. No pretension, no dress code and no pub cover bands, just damn good drinkin’.

The bar is located at the bottom of Park Rd, Brisbane’s best fake-euro wine ‘em and dine ‘em restaurant strip. What we lack in giant novelty world wonder replicas, we make up for with good beer and no bullshit.

Owned and operated by 3 class-less beer lovers, the joint is fiercely independent and will maintain a ‘freehouse’ philosophy, with no tap contracts in sight. A carefully selected draught and bottle range will highlight many styles from many craft brewers sourced both on the doorstep and internationally. Carefully paired with some of the country’s most drool-worthy farmhouse cheeses, we’re making it pretty bloody easy for you to drink better.
A visit to The Scratch represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Brisbane travel planner to plot your vacation.
