Four Hearts brewing is all about brewing beer with full flavour, no chemicals, nothing artificial and no preservatives.

We are a little company producing beers for people that want something tasty and unique not bland and mass-produced.

There are too many mass market, boring beers out there that all taste the same with the only difference being the fancy advertising and the manufactured brand identity. Four Hearts Brewing rejects the notion that beer needs to be mass-produced and instead produces small quantities of high quality, flavoursome beer.

Ipswich challenger - light ale -  (ABV 2.9)

Looking for a beer that is light on alcohol yet full flavoured? We've for you covered. Challenger boasts flavours of mandarin, green tea and spice while remaining quaffable and refreshing. Awarded a Bronze Medal in the 2016 Australian International Beer Awards.

summer wheat - german wheat ale -  (ABV 4.7)

A mild version of a traditional German wheat beer. Our Wiessbier is not filtered but is relatively clear. With low bitterness and yeast driven aromas and flavours of clove and banana this is an easy drinking beer that will take you back to the Biergartens of Germany, Prost!

seasonal new world pilsner - pilsner -  (ABV 5.0)

New world German and New Zealand hops both in the boil and dry hopped give this beer a unique hoppy and very crisp finish. The simple malt bill of Pilsner and small amount of specialty malts help to perfectly balance the hop profile. An easy drinker that will have you coming back for more!


Our Pale Ale takes inspiration from both sides of the Atlantic. American yeast and English style malts combined with Cascade and Enigma hops strike the perfect balance of caramel and biscuit malts. A pleasant grapefruit hop kick rounds it all off. 

nineteen ten - american barley wine -  (ABV 11.4)

The grand daddy of beers, brewed to celebrate the year our brewery building was constructed. Made from the rich first runnings of the mash. This is a complex beer that needs to warm up for the drinker to truly enjoy the experience. Rich malt and tropical fruit abound in the aroma of the beer which finishes big and smooth. Not for the faint hearted and best enjoyed with food.  

Coal miners stout - stout -  (ABV 5.5)

Taking out a bronze medal in the 2015 CBIA awards and in the AIBA in 2016, our stout is rich and roasty with hints of chocolate and smoke. Boasting a thick mouthfeel and plenty of flavour, this is a stout to be savoured.

S'more than a feeling - sweet stout - (ABV 9.2)

This beer is out of the box. Brewed for GABS Festival 2016 it includes marshmallows, cocoa and biscuits, this coupled with lactose and smoked chocolate malt makes this beer the liquid form of the camp fire favourite S'mores. A bronze medal winner in the Australian International Beer Awards in 2016.


We have a rotating list of guest beers and cider from micro-breweries in Australia and around the world. Our guest taps are ever changing, unique and flavoursome. Ask at the bar for today's selection.


Gotta run? Grab a re-fillable growler of our Four Hearts tap beer. Stainless steel and built to last, our swing top growlers are the best way to enjoy our beer at home, at a BBQ or wherever you may find yourself. 

Pumpyard  Bar and Brewery

88 Limestone, Ipswich

The Location. 
Ipswich, an industrial town with a large number of men employed at the railway workshops, the woollen mills and coal mines in an era where technical education was greatly needed. At an auspicious meeting held on 26 June 1891, attended by leading citizens of Ipswich a resolution was handed down stating “the time has come for a Technical College to be formed in Ipswich”.

Funds raised by the local community of £1000 combined with a government grant of £2000, works began on an architect design of a Grand Public Building by George Brockwell Gill. Construction began in 1897 by contractor H Woodford and brickworks by G Williams. The purpose built college was a memorial to the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria whom unfortunately passed two weeks prior to her visit to the College.

From 1901 to 1941 saw the construction of four Stately buildings (and expansions) that would later provide key adaptive reuse elements for unique heritage conservation. In 1901 the main building (Block A), a two storey brick masonry building (with basement) was constructed on the corner of Limestone and Ellenborough Streets. With its heavily ornamented and eclectic façade the building is symmetrically framed by identical breakfronts and a cornered entrance.

Prior to the construction of the Technical College the site was the original site for the supply of water to the City of Ipswich hence the name ‘Pumpyard’.

Pumpyard Bar and Brewery

So what do you get when you combine a heritage listed 100 year old building, a local brewer, a 1200l brewery and a fully licensed bar with a pumpin' kitchen? 4 Hearts Brewing Pumpyard Bar and Brewery.
