Hold on to your pint glasses, because we’re bringing you some breaking hospitality news: Surfers Paradise’s first and only brewery, BOBs Beer, has finally opened its doors and it’s what a beer lover’s dreams are made of.
If you haven’t heard about BOBs, you’re sure to notice it—the striking, three-storey white-washed brewpub commands the bustling corner of Elkhorn and Orchid Avenue, its copper sign shining out like a beacon to thirsty patrons.
The brewhouse is led by famed ex-Red Duck, Clifton Hill and Bad Shepherd brewer Ryan Fullerton, so you know something good is a’brewin. All of BOBs in-house craft beers are lovingly brewed with a focus on quality and locally sourced ingredients. With four in-house brews currently pouring, and four more on the way, expect frothies like a hazy IPA, ruby red ale and chocolate porter contrasted by funky limited releases. Would a Pinata Sour quench your thirst?
The sophisticated menu puts a modern twist on French, Japanese and Australian flavours to create a standout lineup you might not expect in Surfers Paradise. Curated by culinary genius, Nobert Szlama, the fusion menu goes against the grain of usual pub fare and boasts smaller plates like delicate chickpea crisps with french kimchi, harissa and rice crackers and oysters mignonette with shallots, shiitake and topiko.
Pair your pint with an array of drool-worthy sides; think fried Jerusalem artichokes with smoked salt and aioli or their best-selling crispy lotus root chips. The main meals are impressive and secure BOBs place as one of the best dining spots in Surfers Paradise.
