Craft Brew House (or Craft Brewhouse!) is a welcoming community cafe-bar and live music venue located in Birkdale, on the picturesque Redlands Coast.

Craft is the ultimate destination for craft beer enthusiasts and we proudly offer the largest selection of truly independent craft beer and cider in the region. Put simply, we love anything that is craft brewed! Authenticity is our top priority, ensuring that only the finest brews grace our taps. Our knowledgeable staff are always on hand to guide you in finding the perfect beer tailored to your taste.
Additionally, we showcase an exceptional wine menu, featuring renowned wineries from the Barossa and McLaren Vale regions, including the esteemed Gumpara Winery. Alongside our drinks menu, we have our Craft Brew House menu where you will find delectable tapas, fresh baked wings and award winning pizza, creating the perfect accompaniment to your craft beer experience. Live music adds to our inner city vibe, but found in the heart of Birkdale. The last Wednesday of every month we hold an Open Mic session which is really just a great excuse for a room full of musicians to have a jam. Every Thursday the community come together and pit their wits against each other at our friendly and super popular Trivia.

About Us

Hello! We are Tracy and Martin Robson and we are the owners of Craft Brew House / Craft Brewhouse in Birkdale on the Redlands Coast in Queensland. We moved to the Redlands from the UK in late 2005. Buying into the business in July 2021, we are putting our hearts and souls into the venture.

High on our priorities are a community space for Redlands locals to enjoy and a place for the local music scene to shine. From just two musicians on our books, we now have 38 musicians that play at our venue with more wanting to perform. You can find live music three times a week – Friday/Saturday 7-10pm and Sunday 3-6pm.

The menu is a range of pizza, wings and tapas and the focus is on quality at a good price.

We believe in supporting local wherever possible, and are very passionate about  craft beer,  live music, fantastic food, cocktail making classes, community initiatives, great value and excellent service. We are craft beer Birkdale along with so much more!
