Top spots to get an ice cold frothie

As the weather heats up it’s important the beer is cold. Here’s our top suggestions for where to get a nice ice cold frothie when you’re in Port Douglas…


“The Courty” as the locals love to call it is the oldest pub in Port Douglas and one of the most iconic pubs in Australia. Rest your weary legs on the 2nd level verandah and get yourself a few jugs of the local boutique beers. How’s the serenity now? If you kick on past sunset, their pub grub and live music won’t let you down.


Hemingway’s offers its patrons an amazing selection of local craft beers for those drinkers with a more refined palette.  We’ve spent a few lazy afternoons in here tasting everything on the menu. There’s a great little backstory for each of Hemingway’s classic brews…like Pitchfork Betty’s pale ale. Good old Betty ruled a local watering hole with her rusty pitchfork. Cheers Betty!

The Central

The quintessential local’s local, The Central is a classic hotel style pub, with live sport on the big screen and plenty of cosy spots to taste a few cold ones. The pub boasts open timber decks, giant sail structures and lush tropical landscaping alongside the ‘old’ pub. A great family friendly choice to quench that hard earned tropical thirst.

The surf club

Who’s keen for some beachfront beers? Yeah, we thought so! There’s nothing better than the legendary Surf Club for a lazy arvo or evening of beers (and classic grub if you get hungry). A super chilled, casual drinking hole, with plenty of personality and a big heart. As you can see, they even advertise ice cold beer out the front…too easy.

Tin Shed

Pokies and cold beers right by the water, you can’t go wrong on the deck of the Tin Shed. Inside is a comfortable lounge that’s fully air-conditioned for those extra hot days and plenty of TV’s to follow your favourite sports game. The Tin Shed has over 100 years behind it, drink in the history with an ice cold frothie in your hands.
