Felons Barrel Hall is a monster brewery and entertainment venue at Howard Smith Wharves, spanning 1000 square metres on the edge of the Brisbane River.

Half of the venue is a deck that extends out to the water, offering views of the Story Bridge. The brewpub side, meanwhile, is split into five main areas. There’s a seafood and grill restaurant; a casual dining area serving up buckets of oysters and prawns, fish and chip parcels and fresh poke bowls; a large deck; a courtyard; and a retail space flaunting take-home beers, brewery tours and tastings.

There are 56 taps spread between the main bar and the Felons beer trucks that are parked across the precinct, so you'll never go thirsty here. The commercial brewery operation accounts for a large part of the indoor space, and large windows allow punters to look in and see beer production in real time.

The entire precinct has been purpose-built to accommodate events, functions and music festivals. Even the surrounding greenways are licensed, meaning guests can drink Felons beer and cider throughout the whole area.
