Stockland Birtinya is pleased to welcome the boutique gastro pub Malt Shovel Taphouse to its family of restaurants in The Avenue.

The new taphouse will cover nearly 850 square metres including its chic outdoor dining space and will offer customers an exciting range of bespoke events, authentic experiences and live entertainment – right in the heart of the dining precinct.

Shane Monro, Centre Manager, Stockland Birtinya said: “Malt Shovel Taphouse will be a great addition to the existing casual dining precinct that is currently home to On A Roll Sushi, Acai Brothers, Hello Harry Burger Joint, Suki Birtinya and KebabZone Birtinya.

“It will bring something new and dynamic to the table that will serve to enrich the customer experience and provide a place for connecting with friends, experiencing live music and entertainment, and further improving the evening offer at Birtinya.”

The Malt Shovel Taphouse will be the first venue of its kind in Queensland featuring a range of 16 thirst-quenching, cracking and flavour-packing craft beers on tap and a kitchen that specialises in rotisserie meats.

Customers can expect to see items on the menu like free-range Elgin Valley chicken in a craft beer marinade, Bileola sustainable pork belly and rolled Sovereign lamb with a wild thyme rub, all slow cooked on a custom-built rotisserie in an open kitchen.

Ian Van der Woude, Managing Director, Food Focus Australia, said: “We are really excited to announce our opening in Stockland Birtinya and look forward to serving local residents some fantastic foods paired with exceptional craft beers.

“It will be a vibrant space celebrating what great beer and food is all about; a meeting place for families and friends, and a home for locals to have unique and authentic experiences around craft beer.

Mr Van der Woude continued that customers can expect the venue itself to have a modern industrial aesthetic with a coastal feel.

“It has been designed as a modern take on the traditional taphouse venue for the local Sunshine Coast beer lover; a casual yet sophisticated backdrop for Friday afternoon drinks, weekend craft tasting sessions, special occasions and Sunday sessions.”

The new taphouse will be open seven days a week with lunch and dinner menus, live music and bespoke events.
