Felons Barrel Hall

Howard Smith Wharves

Felons Barrel Hall is a mammoth new waterfront beer hall occupying Howard Hall at Howard Smith Wharves.

The folks behind Felons Brewing Co have taken over the stunning functions hall to create a modern take on a German beer hall, serving barrels aged beers, delicious pub grub and with a cultural performance space for live acts.

The main bar is framed by four 6,000 litre beer tanks and lining the walls are a mixture of French and American Oak ex-wine barrels, which give way to seating areas to fit all walks of life to come and relax and enjoy comfortably. The space also has a kid’s area for families to enjoy and a stage complete with a disco ball.

Using a series of hand-selected ex-wine barrels to explore new flavours within beer, the specially aged beers will celebrate local produce, and offer a kaleidoscope of new and exciting flavours for Felons’ fans to try. This range of new beers is slated to be released at a later date in 2021.  

Until then, a core range of crisp and delicious Felons Brewing Co. beers, served in half litre and one litre stein will be offered at Felons Barrel Hall, along with some selected limited and seasonal release beers. The experience is paired with the upcoming distinctive flavours of the barrel aged beers.

A bold, unique menu features dishes that are served with a range of hot chips: from decadent rainbow painted crayfish to Moreton Bay bug loaded fries, locally and sustainable caught coral trout and a range of vegetable and salad options packing a punch bursting with flavour and designed to pair perfectly with a stein of crisp and hazy Felons Natural Ale. The dishes use only the best Australian ingredients that are ethically farmed and fished to support like-minded local producers to the brewers.

And, for those who prefer wine, an offbeat wine list showcasing natural wine makers from around Australia is also on offer.

It’s not only the refreshing beers and punchy menu that will draw a crowd to Felons’ new endeavour, but also the range of performances Felons Barrel Hall will play host to. From smooth family-friendly sounds to emerging artists to some of Australia’s leading performers, along with viewings of art-house films and interactive performances, Felons Barrel Hall will be putting on shows you won’t want to miss.

Open from 11am until late Thursday-Sunday, Felons Barrel Hall is THE place to sip through the range of fresh Felons beers, indulge in delicious food and get immersed in a colourful blend of live cultural performances.
