Brisbane Airport To Feature Brewery, Distillery & Beer Garden

In a move that continues the trend for transport hubs offering much more than just your travel needs, Brisbane Airport is set to open an onsite craft brewery, distillery and beer garden next year.

The international airport has partnered with one of Brisbane's leading breweries, Green Beacon Brewing Company in order to bring the new offering to life. Also involved in the project is Brisbane Airport-based Golf Central, collaborating as part of the area's US$18 million Landers Pocket development which will see a new sports and entertainment precinct also come to live, in which the onsite craft brewery, distillery and beer garden will be situated.

The evolving transport hubs trend was one that we tipped back in 2018 already in our 2018-19 Food and Drink Mega Trends as part of the I'm Choosing trend which sees the lines blurred in food and beverage around what we eat and when we eat it. tfp trendhub subscribers can look back at the 2018-19 report here.

The news of the Brisbane Airport's development follows that of Amerigo Vespucci Airport, Florence, developing an almost 8-hectare vineyard on the roof of its new terminal, something we covered back in February - read this story here.
