Our first experience of the Brewery was a Beer and Cheese event and it was amazing to see how cheese impacts beers and vice versa. If you get the chance, do the event!

Fantastic meal and service. Entree was amazing and service nothing short of excellent. A little noisy but a minor concession for a great night !👍😁

After moving to Townsville from Sydney almost a year ago we have been trying to get to all the places in town to try them out,. We finally made it to Malt after 5 attempts but always picking some where else on the way in. I am glad that tonight we finally stuck to our guns and made it to... More

One of the best meals we have had since arriving in Townsville 18 months ago. All staff very friendly and efficient. Just the right wait time between courses. Chicken moist and tender. Beef rib falling off the bone, as it's supposed to. Absolutely perfect night.

The symposium dinner for about 150 people was held here on a Wednesday night. The staff coped well with the standard drinks orders, with table service all night. The meals were pre-ordered and delicious. The signage to the bathrooms is obscure and sexist.

Happy hour $4 a pint Mon - Fri 5pm - 7pm.......outrageous Townsville people have absolutely nothing to complain about. Try coming to Perth and getting ripped of $8 for happy hour. Hey Perth idiots who are happy to pay this price......at the Brewery it's $8 for normal price. Townsville rocks

The brewery consistently provide great service in their bar and restaurant. They also can put together amazing events, and this year's Oktoberfest was a perfect example of this. Well organised from the electronic ticket purchasing, simple token payment system and also a great locally brewed beer for the event. The food and entertainment were also of a high standard. Will...

This is a great pub, with bistro meals available or dining in the restaurant. Service is always good at the bar and the restaurant has never disappointed. The menu is small but has a very good selection of seafood, beef and other items. Prices are a little on the high side but a good meal always. Service can never be... More
