Brilliant!
Follow them to beer. You won’t be disappointed.
They have a beer (or cider) for every taste. High quality, preservative free. You can taste the difference. Drop in, or get them to brew for your special event.
Only been here a couple of times, but will certainly frequent a lot more now.
It’s like a pub without the bullsh*t.
The staff are excellent and know their product.
The calibre of bands and musicians that play are second to none. Headlining acts of some of Australia’s biggest and best artists.
Kudos to the owner on the idea and variety of the food trucks that drop by. Excellent touch.

Thirsty Chiefs will lead you straight to BEER!
Brought some interstate relatives here to experience some local breweries. Setting and ambience isn’t great as it’s located in an industrial estate in North Lakes, but the beers were good and the staff were really friendly.
When I go back I’ll buy a T-shirt coz they’re pretty cool!!

Thirsty Chiefs is another of the small boutique brewing outfits popping up over Brisbane in industrial estates. It is in a little complex in Northlakes and is located approx 2/3rds of the way down the bays it is in.
It is a little rustic inside. Has bench seating at tables and drums with table tops to sit around. There is inside / outside seating available. They have one pool table (I think free to use). They have live music and food vans some nights. The website is very good and tells you whats going on and when.
Now for the beers. They have a wide selection of which they brew. I am not a fan of the IPA brews but the other beers are very nice. The pricing is great. You can get 4 beers for $24 (schooner size) which is excellent.
It is a great place and I will be definitely be going back soon for a brew.

Great place to visit any day but weekends are excellent. Food trucks, musos, great beer and a great vibe. If you're up this way it's a must.

On Friday night there is music playing either by a solo artist or band. A different variety of food trucks are also there on Friday night. Some food vans are there on a regular basis too.

I came here with my wife and to catch up with friends. First time here and I will definitely come back. Great beers at a good price and the atmosphere was fantastic. Live music and a food van was also provided which made it that much more enjoyable. The staff were friendly which helps a lot. I would recommend.

I've been to Thirsty Chiefs Brewery on many occasions over the past 3 years that they have been operating and every time I have been welcomed, Dean the owner remembers my name and the huge variety of beers and ciders is amazing, let along they all taste great.
Prior to going to Thirsty Chiefs I was a one beer man (XXXX Bitter), now I am prepared to try any of the beers and ciders.
The place is family and kids friendly with toys, family days, live music (I saw Jackie Barnes playing there a couple of times) and a wide range of Brisbane's most popular food trucks at the venue for the wide variety of functions.
Dean and his wife and staff always make you feel very welcome and the are true North Lakes community minded people donating money and beer to community functions.

I caught up with a few people at Thirsty Chiefs for a couple of beers. The atmosphere was great and the beers were tasty. While there were mainly adults there, children and families were also welcome. There is a pool table and fusbal table that kept the kids occupied. It was raining the day we went and we mainly stayed inside. They set up marquees outside as well and I understand they often have tables outside. They brew on site and have facilities for home brewers on site too.

A great little spot to catch up with a few mates for a beer. The chilli beer is a must try. Family friendly with some great theme nights and food vans.
