Last week, I had the great pleasure of sharing a beer with Lee from White Lies Brewery to celebrate a significant moment in Lee’s and all Brisbane Craft Beer drinkers’ lives – White Lies Bar is now fully licensed. Like most applications for breweries and bars in Brisbane, Lee’s DA and License took far longer than expected. It has been a long and frustrating time for him, but finally it has all come good. To celebrate the moment, Lee poured a couple of glasses of his latest brew, a beautiful, rich Russian Imperial Stout. After drinking it, I was moved to suggest that Lee and White Lies was the ‘Mornington Brewery’ of Brisbane. Like Mornington, Lee does brilliant dark beers. I love his chocolate porters and the RIS was another cracker. For me, there are two reasons to celebrate Lee opening his bar – firstly, I was the first blogger on the scene and beat all the usual suspects to the ‘scoop’, but more importantly, the White Lies bar is at Sumner Park, a very short drive from my office. How good is that! The Wacol/Sumner Park area is not noted for its drinking venues, but Lee has fixed that. White Lies Brewery and Bar is officially opening this Friday from 12.00pm. Lots of details available on Facebook here. Drop in and help Lee celebrate the next milestone in the growth of White Lies. Absolute best of luck and hope the day is fantastic. Cheers, David
