The Prince Consort Four Legged Pub Crawl

The Prince Consort - Four Legged Pub Crawl

Make no bones about it; there are plenty of places outside the four fences of home where city dogs can let their fur down. You know the drill, you face your dog’s accusatory glare as you leave and as soon as you get to the venue you see other people with their dogs. Then you start feeling guilty for leaving your furry pal behind. With an increasing number of cafes putting out a welcome bowl of water, bars where you can have a beer with your 4-legged best friend and a drive-in theatre for dogs to catch the latest movies, there’s even less reason to leave the pooch at home. Throughout August at The Prince Consort in Fortitude Valley, it's was Pawgust time.

The Wickham Street pub dedicated the entire month to pairing pints with pooches. Some of the special events on the agenda were a Paws and Pints session on Sunday, August 14, a fundraising brunch on Saturday, August 20 and the event we stumbled across at the last minute “Four Legged Pub Crawl”. Forget regular old pub crawls in Brisbane this one takes you hopping between three Fortitude Valley bars with your cute pooch. The Prince Consort's Four-Legged Pub Crawl was on Sunday, August 28 and took us hopping between three Fortitude Valley bars with our cute pup. Unsurprisingly, it finished off at the 230 Wickham Street venue itself, which is celebrating Pawgust all across the month. The walk started from the Triffid from there we walked up to Stone & Wood's Brisbane brewery, and then a little further over to The The Prince Consort.

Few dogs and owners meet at the first leg of the crawl, The Triffid. This World War II aircraft hangar turned music industry hub is one of the coolest hangouts that Brisbane has to offer The Triffid has carved out a legacy as one of the most beloved live music venues in Brisbane, but it’s also pup friendly. Bring your pup down for a couple refreshing afternoon pints, and send them on their merry way when the mosh pit comes a-calling. If you want a cool, relaxing Sunday afternoon with great live music and a late lunch this is the place to go. Atmosphere is relaxing; staffs were helpful and loved the pups. From midday to 7pm, dogs are welcomed in the outside areas (deck and beer garden)

From the Triffid we moved on to 99 Bridge Street and stopped at Stone & Wood's Brisbane brewery. Synonymous with sunny days and good times, Stone & Wood Brisbane has developed a reputation as one of the most lovable craft breweries. Stone and Wood are synonymous with Byron Bay, and while in Byron we visited their brewery with our pup. The Brisbane Brewery is tucked away in the heritage-listed Trails Ltd Ice and Cold Stores taking over a heritage-listed former warehouse and giving it an industrial fit-out. The venue features plenty of exposed brickwork, steel beams and polished concrete, but still has an open, airy feel, in part thanks to the roller doors that open to let in plenty of natural light. You’ll find 24 taps pouring Stone & Wood’s core range of beers, limited releases, and small-batch brews exclusive to Brisbane. To one side, there's the bar with the working brewery behind, and to the other, a canteen window where you can order food. At the rear is a merchandise wall. The staffs were fantastic, the food was amazing but as you would expect the beer was outstanding! Great experience in a repurposed building Oozing with character, will be back for sure. After awhile we hit the road again following Wickham street to our final destination The Prince Consort.

We entered through the ground floor and into an unassuming, typical English gastro pub that’s a little brighter and whiter than what you’d usually expect, but with the typical pub atmosphere and hospitality we all know and love. We headed outside into The Garden Bar to find a lush, open air beer garden, the perfect spot to soak up Brisbane’s weather with a beer or two. The Prince Consort is a massive, multi-level, heritage-listed hotel (circa 1888) featuring 8 unique, bespoke bars for drinking and dining, all under one roof. Most recently known as the Elephant Hotel, the landmark building has reverted to its original name and has been transformed to its former glory. We had a fantastic woodfire pizza and the woodfired salad.


The event was raising money for Animal Welfare League Queensland. The Animal Welfare League of Qld takes care of approximately 10,000 strayed and abandoned animals annually from South East Queensland. The AWL receives no Government funding for welfare work, relying predominantly on the community for support. Keeping track of the pooch-friendly events around Brisbane almost requires a separate calendar. We look forward to next August.
