Beer and gourmet food lovers travel from near and far to Pumpyard Bar and Brewery in the eclectic Top of Town area of the Ipswich Central Business District. Situated in the historic former Technical College, which opened in 1901, Pumpyard has won an enviable reputation as the place to go for top quality, locally brewed beer and plenty of atmosphere.
Known as Pumpyard because of the site's original use as the water source for the City of Ipswich, it now supplies its happy customers with liquid of the amber kind from its brand, Four Hearts Brewing. It's been selected in the Top 50 beer venues in Australia by Beer and Brewer Magazine, and was listed in the Top 100 food destinations in Queensland by The Courier Mail's Queensland Taste food guide. With their gourmet burgers, pizzas, share plates, a kids' menu and sweet treats such as House Made Beer Ice Cream, you can see why.
Pumpyard's décor is funky industrial with huge shiny vats housing the craft beer produced onsite. There's also a function space, and an outdoor area with a shaded garden to enjoy a cold one, with chilled-out acoustic live music on Sundays.
