The Mill on Constance – Brisbane
The site for The Mill on Constance comes with a lot of history. During World War II, it was known as The Mill Barracks, and was the headquarters for the Fifth Air Force Service Command. Before that it was the Defiance Flour Mill.
The idea behind the Mill bar began when two Irish men and one Scottish lass walked onto a Brisbane building site. What followed next was a six month journey to restoring the River City’s iconic ‘Flour Mill and Grain Store’ to its full 1904 glory with a contemporary twist.
Fit out of The Mill was a labour of love by the trio which saw blood, sweat and several six packs later unearth a space of sanded floorboards, exposed brick and handcrafted furnishings. From the beginning, the recipe was simple: add some flavour from their heritage (two parts Irish, one part Scottish) and a sprinkle of Aussie pride.
Opening the doors in December 2013, it’s safe to say The Mill is a charming space that reflects a love for the bars, and pubs back home in Dublin, Galway and Glasgow, mixed with an authentic appreciation for the Australian craft beer culture.
A regular participant in the Brewsvegas Brisbane craft beer festival, The Mill has 4 x quality rotating taps, and a bottle list that covers all the bases – from Sours, to Triples, to palette bombing IPA’s.
In addition to craft beer, The Mill provides a great selection of Australian spirits, and wine. Theres also some delicious bar snacks to ward off the tummy rumbles, such goat pies, burgers, wings, and tacos.
Regular comedy nights, and acoustic sets from local muso’s, help ensure the vibe stays up-temp and fun.
One thing’s for sure, when you walk into The Mill on Constance, you’ll be greeted with a smile, a warm hello and a tasty, ice cold beer.
