Saccharomyces Beer Cafe

South Brisbane

Saccharomyces Beer Café is a cool designer beer hall tucked away in Fish Lane, South Brisbane, serving a daily breakfast, followed by craft beers and eats until midnight.

Combining the lively communal vibe of the traditional beer hall with sleek contemporary locally crafted décor, Saccharomyces Beer Café is a great place to stop by for a spot of breakfast or to sink a few beers with friends.

Whilst delicious eats are part of the scene here, first and foremost it’s about the beer, which Saccharomyces has carefully sourced from near and far, both locally and internationally. Local beers include drops from Newstead Brewing Co, Fortitude Brewing and Green Beacon Brewing Co and from overseas, in keeping with the beer hall theme, there’s an emphasis on old European styles such as brown ales, sours and Belgian beers, with rarities such as handcrafted beer from Norway (Nogne O) and Denmarks ‘gypsy’ microbrewery Mikkeller. Meanwhile ten beers (Including IPA and lager) are on tap at any given time and change regularly.

To accompany the beers (and upcoming wines*), a range of share style dishes are available that are perfectly managed standing up or perched on a stool with beer in hand.

Despite its beer café status, breakfast at Saccharomyces is a real treat with dishes like Muesli Parfait with seasonal berries and yoghurt, Lemon and Cayenne Smashed Peas with Poached Egg and Sourdough, Green Eggs and Ham (ham off the bone with kale and fried egg), Peanut Butter and Choc Chip Pancakes with cream and honey syrup or Indonesian Rice with Poached Egg (spicy mixed vegetable rice with coriander, mint, bean sprouts, chilli and shaved coconut).

There’s also a daily blackboard selection of vegan, gluten-free and take-away options.

To accompany there’s coffee from Artisan Coffee Roasters and, on the way, a great range of teas (including chai and herbal), iced coffee and chocolate, milkshakes, juices, coconut water, sparkling water and soft drinks.

At the time of writing the only non-breakfast dish available was the daily house banh mi – a twist on the traditional banh mi that comes highly recommended.

Small Plates include Oven-baked Chicken Wings, Smoked Cheddar Mac & Cheese and Potato Roti with dry cured bacon and quail egg, or there’s house Sliders including Indonesian Beef, Haloumi and Cajun Chicken with a side of housemade pickle, Cheese burgers and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches such as Triple Cheese (gouda, cheddar and Swiss) or Cheddar, Apple and Dry Cured Bacon.

Need to know – You’ll find Saccharomyces Beer Café on the section of Fish lane between Hope and Merivale St, just a block from Maker bar and Julius Pizzeria. A cracking carefully curated wine list with plenty of local varieties from Stanthorpe and Tenterfield is on its way and should be available from mid-November when the PM menu kicks in. On Mondays Saccharomyces is only open for breakfast.
