Beer bar ‘The Scratch’ lurks in the shadow of Queensland’s brewing behemoth. We aim to support the independent and encourage the rejection of brand loyalty in favour of a constantly rotating draught and bottled beer menu. No pretension, no dress code and no pub cover bands, just damn good drinkin’.A visit to The Scratch represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Brisbane travel planner to plot your vacation.
The bar is located at the bottom of Park Rd, Brisbane’s best fake-euro wine ‘em and dine ‘em restaurant strip. What we lack in giant novelty world wonder replicas, we make up for with good beer and no bullshit.
Owned and operated by 3 class-less beer lovers, the joint is fiercely independent and will maintain a ‘freehouse’ philosophy, with no tap contracts in sight. A carefully selected draught and bottle range will highlight many styles from many craft brewers sourced both on the doorstep and internationally. Carefully paired with some of the country’s most drool-worthy farmhouse cheeses, we’re making it pretty bloody easy for you to drink better.
The Scratch Reviews
Well worth tracking down this fine, quirky beer lover’s / odd art den. Staff who really know their beer, great tap range, perfectly presented with a small number but high turnover of a set of taps... more »
The Scratch was a pleasant surprise. Good quality craft beer on tap and in bottle, friendly and knowledgeable staff. more »
Great little craft beer place. Awesome selection to try, friendly and helpful staff. Free pinball. Cozy atmosphere. Will go back 👍
This place has character! If your looking for somewhere lively to have a drink of some delicious ales and have an after work chuckle look nowhere else! This is the place to go in Milton. I'm salivating just thinking about it. Super friendly staff. Reminds me of small pub atmospheres similar to the UK, well done!
