The beer so good month’s supply drunk in 3 days

NO ONE can say Brisbane doesn't love its beer.

One of the city's newest venues Felons Brewing Co at the Howard Smith Wharves confirmed Brisbane beer lovers drank an entire month's supply of limited edition ale in just three days, over the festive season.

Felons Marketing Manager Dean Romeo said the team had been so overwhelmed with how well the beer had been received they had to install more tanks, which were delivered today.

"Well it certainly was a 'we're going to need a bigger boat' moment for all of us here down under the Story Bridge," Mr Romeo said.

"We were truly blessed by the beer gods with the additional tanks. We had no idea we were going to be as well received in Brisbane as we have been. We've been overwhelmed with the support of our beer and brewery by the local community and it has resulted in us not being able to keep up with the demand."

Mr Romeo said as a sign of the brewery's appreciation for Brisbane's support they are inviting everyone to the Brewery Open Day weekend on January 26 and 27.

"We'll have brewery tours ran on the hour, beer tastings served all day and loads of entertainment positioned around the venue. It will truly be the family affair where all are welcome including those furry members of the family (dogs of course)."

New tanks are being installed at Felons Brewing Co. at Howard Smith Wharves to keep up with demand.
