Saccharomyces Beer Cafe

Located on Fish Lane in Brisbane’s rapidly growing South Brisbane district, Saccharomyces Beer Cafe was the brain child of a small group of passionate craft beer drinkers, in search of making a venue dedicated to sourcing unique beers for the discerning beer drinker. 

The shell of the building (designed by Cameron & Co Architecture) is a deep red brick.  To compliment this, our approach was to keep the interior simple. The off form concrete bar with a subtle imprinted brandmark sits against a simple white subway back drop with a magnetic blackboard and playful graphics for ease of updating new beers & taps. Low timber tables with up-cycled brown leather seats are scattered throughout the interior while oversized high timber tables provide the ‘beer hall’ embedded in our client’s brief. Over these hang custom light fittings, designed by a local Brisbane industrial designer.

A dark, moody interior in parts with a light, green edge to the lane way, the Saccharomyces Beer Cafe is now a thriving Brisbane venue. Over time the interior has become layered with a loveable ‘dive bar’ feel, with board games on the tables, posters haphazardly displayed and arcade machines scattered about. SBC is passionately loved by its’ regulars and known for being a distinguished watering hole for the beer aficionado.
