About Us

We’re All About Sustaining The Good Beer Drinkers!

Our History | 2012

Some of you might remember our original location in Masters St. Newstead. Tippler’s Tap first opened here in 2012, way back in the era of Gangnam Style and wedge sneakers. Tippler’s Tap was one of those original pioneering craft beer bars that really changed things up!

Our History | 2012-2015

Turns out Tippler’s Tap was definitely onto something with its winning formula of top-notch on-tap brews and classic Chicago-style eats in a laid back atmosphere. Craft beer proved to be much more than a passing fad with many people acquiring a taste for independent brews, described by some as a “leading light of the burgeoning Brisbane craft beer scene”.

Our History | 2015

In December 2015, we relocated to a new venue in Southbank. Tippler’s Tap was reborn in Brisbane’s premier lifestyle and cultural destination. This was in the space previously occupied by our sister establishment, Tomahawk Bar. “The opportunity to open a restaurant at South Bank presented itself, and we felt that this would be an opportunity to showcase craft beer to a wider, more mainstream audience,” said the owner at the time.

Our History | 2016-2018

With the relocation proving successful, our Southbank location was fast becoming a local favourite. We were now strutting our stuff in ‘foodie-central’ on Grey Street in South Brisbane. Here Tippler’s Tap really had its chance to shine. We garnered a mainstream following. Not just for our craft beers and great service but, of course — for our famous wings (we also have popular vegan/vegetarian options).

Our History | 2018

Even with people coming from far and wide to experience Tippler's Tap in Southbank, we were encountering some nostalgia about our old stomping grounds in Newstead. Some still hankered for the ‘neighbourhood bar’ feel of Masters Street. We listened to their feedback and started searching for the perfect spot for our second location. A “warm and friendly community hub” , Tipplers Tap in James Street, Newstead, opened for business in June 2018.

Our History | 2018 - current

With two fantastic Brissie locations boasting some of the best craft beer from local breweries and from all around the globe, plus tasty dinners and snacks in laid back yet lively atmospheres, Tippler’s Tap has it all and more! In the midst of COVID-19 adversity, we’ve come back stronger than ever and are 100% committed to keep serving our valued customers. Stay tuned peeps!
