The Suburban Brew

Brewery, Family Friendly Eats

Day drinking becomes a difficult task when you have children, trust me. I know because I like beer, a lot. But I also like our kids, a lot. In fact, if I had to choose, I’d definitely pick our kids over beer. But, it shouldn’t have to be an either-or situation because the undeniable truth is, people like to conregate over drinks and guess what? Parents are people too.

Lo and behold, The Suburban Brew – a brewery catering to the needs of families, thank god!

Established as a business in 2017, the Glynde Brewery & Taproom is their newest venue to hit the craft beer revolution. Opening in December 2022, following the success of their first taproom in Goodwood, the family-friendly vibe is evident the moment you walk through the doors of this light-filled industrial warehouse. What sets this brewery apart is the dedicated Kids Zone. You’ll find plenty of toys and attractions to entertain the little ones including a chalkboard, an arcade style game, a wooden play kitchen and more. To top things off, we even heard there’s a cubby house coming, a wonderful addition for sure.

While the kids are occupied (boom – you’re a good parent), check out the beer that’s been brewed mere metres away from where you sit. Head to the bar where the over 18 crowd can choose from over 10 taps. My suggestion? Grab a tasting paddle. We love that there’s an alcohol-free beer for designated drivers or non-drinkers, plus the option of cider, wine and spirits for those who simply don’t like beer (yes, these people do exist). If you get a chance, try the Blue Skies, Green Grass; an East Coast IPA – it’s a personal fave!

Owner and brewer, Tony (a parent himself) has created a space where people come together. A space where it’s OK for your kid to act like a kid and not have to walk around on pins and needles. A laidback atmosphere where beer enthusiasts can happily sip a session ale (responsibly of course) with the kiddos and/or fur babies in tow. There is ample space to move about with picnic tables both indoors and outdoors for families to gather over a board game. Kids of all ages (including adults) can play corn hole right outside. Add to that, a pool table and a pinball machine – c’mon, could this place be more cool?

But wait, it gets better. The Suburban Brew run their own “Sunday Fundays” once a month. We were there on a recent Sunday Funday and were blown away by the amount of kids of all ages enjoying a choc top from the pop-up ice-cream van and… drumroll please… free face painting. If you’re looking for an afternoon well spent with some of your favourite tiny people, be sure to check their socials to find out exactly when their next one is! Speaking of events, there’s also trivia nights, pool comps, brewery tours and live music.

The Suburban Brew doesn’t have a menu or kitchen in-house but they do have a great variety of rotating food trucks to feed the whole crew on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. With a range of Adelaide’s top food trucks including ‘BBQ at Yours‘, ‘Smokey’s Deli’ and ‘The Hungry Llama’ just to name a few, you can pair good food with good beer. Other little things worth noting if you’re a parent eager to have a local brew in a family friendly environment are; there’s highchairs, room to park prams, a change table, plus nappies and baby wipes for those “oh no” moments.

Going out for a beer doesn’t have to mean finding a babysitter and we’ve got one thing to say to that – Cheers!

  • Do your kids love pizza? Do your kids love mac n cheese? If you answered yes to both......don't make them choose! We've found a place where you can get both......together......on the same plate! That's right.......mac n cheese deep crust pizza at Remy's - Deep Dish Pizza & Bar is a thing.....and it's a DELICIOUS crowd pleaser of a thing. If your kids are cheese obsessed like mine this is definitely going to be a winner! Plus the cocktails… YUM! Their menu is chock-a-block full of deep dish pizza goodness. If Mac n Cheese ain't your thing they've also got a bunch of other just as mouth watering pizza toppings including snag n shrooms, triple cheeseburger and the fire breather as well as never fail faves like The Basic B (just cheese) and BBQ chicken. There's vegan options and they also have fries, garlic bread and fried mozarella if you need something on the side. It comes with a disclaimer that the pizzas take 30-40 minutes to cook, but when we went there was super speedy service, which is always great when you have kids in tow. There's isn't heaps of room for prams, so just bear this in mind when…
