About the restaurant
With a name like Brewski, it’s pretty clear we love craft beer. From saisons to sours, pales to IPAs, imperial stouts to barley wines, we love ‘em all. Which is why we stock over 600 kinds of bottles and cans and rotate 12 different beer taps every day.

And when you see our food menu you’ll wonder why we didn’t call ourselves ‘Chewski’. Carnivores and plant-based eaters alike will be in foodie heaven with our awesome burgers, and cracking range of share plates all made to match perfectly with beer.

And when you are done with dining in, do not forget to head down to our drink-in bar/bottle shop, My Beer Dealer. With over 650 craft beers we have the largest range of independent beers in Queensland.

Combine all of that with down to earth friendly service, you’d better get yourself to Brewski. Hello beery peoples.

About the restaurant
Dulcie's is a reimagined family cottage turned restaurant bar. The menu consists of a small selection of tasty burgers, oysters, seasonal cocktails, delicious wine, and friendly chat. Dulcie’s has a long bar to sit at, a beer garden to hang in, a fireplace to warm up next to. All of our menus consider local produce and the atmosphere we aim to create is cosy, fun and comfortable. Think cool grandma crossed with cheeky grandpa vibes.

Third time we have been there. Last time was 3 years ago. On holidays and passing through Merimbula and had to go back. Nothing has changed. Ambience is still great, Food is great as is the service; warm, genuinely friendly and helpful. Like the idea that you have a choice of "creating" you're own menu. Wheelchair accessible and easy to get to. A huge thank you to our waitress, Jess. Awesome service and made the evening.

We were greeted as if we were family. We were shown to our table and given the menus. Water was served, we were asked if we wanted a pre-dinner drink. Our waitress took our order and it was only a short wait before our was served. The staff were most attentive without hovering, we were treated like we mattered. The food was served hot, on hot plates. The food was delicious and flavours balanced. We enjoyed our experience very much and will be back soon.

The bottom half of my burger bun was completely frozen and inedible. They have one pale ale on tap, the rest either draught or stout. Disappointing lack of hazy or sour for a brewery. Long time customer and really sad.

About the restaurant
The story of St Andrews Beach Brewery dates back to the early 2000’s, when our Co-founder Andrew Purchase built the racetrack on the property for the royal family of Australian horse racing – the Freedman Brothers. When the property became available in 2015, Andrew and Michael Freedman saw an opportunity that was too good to miss. With the infrastructure in place and with a story like no other, Andrew, Michael and their passionate team of co-owners set about turning the former stables into a truly unique brewery.
