'Exciting in flavours and in style. We aim to create a unique and inviting craft beer venue.'

Dedicated to past Lord Mayor of Brisbane, James Hipwood, the copper brewing tanks and namesake of the brewery are steeped in history dating back to the 1800's.

Head brewer Jason Cleighton-Hills has reinvigoratedthe microbrewery at the International Hotel, bringing 20 years of experience with him.  As one of the founding brewers at the Burleigh Brewing Company, Jason had the opportunity to work alongside mastermind brewer Brennan Fielding.  Having garnered a wealth of knowledge on the art of craft beer brewing throughout his career Jason strives for perfection in every creation.

Hipwood has given Jason the opportunity to develop his personal style while using only the best ingredients to ensure he is able to consistently deliver world-class beers. With this new-found freedom, the hotel’s in-house taps are constantly changing and evolving with seasonal and regional beers.

We look forward to seeing you for a pint soon.
