The iconic Breakfast Creek Hotel in Albion reopened yesterday (Jan 20) after surviving its third major flood since it was established in 1889.

The current flooding did not reach the levels marked on the wall from the 1974 flood or the 1893 level.

Hotel manager Sam Gullo said that the clean up at the hotel had been completed and “once again our famous steaks and ‘beer off the wood’ are available”.

The Breakfast Creek Hotel is part of the ALH Group and will donate all its sales on Australia Day (Wednesday January 26) to the Premiers Disaster Relief Appeal.

The hotel will also be selling special Queensland flood appeal t-shirts with slogans such as “no water in our beer” for $20 each with all proceeds also going to the appeal.

The ALH has already made a $250,000 donation to the Queensland Premier's Flood Appeal, and is continuing to collect donations at all its Queensland hotels to assist people who have been impacted by the flood.
