Brief Application Summary

Gage Roads, through its wholely owned subsidiary Cliff Street Hospitality Pty Ltd intends to apply for a tavern licence for a new brewery to be established at A Shed, Victoria Quay, Fremantle Harbour (western end), to be known as Gage Roads Brew Co.  The company has been awarded the right to establish the brewery by the State Government as part of a major project redeveloping the 100-year old A Shed.

The applicant seeks the grant of a tavern licence, with approval for liquor to be permitted to be sold and supplied for consumption both on the premises and also off the premises for take-away.  

The new brewery will be owned and operated by the people behind Good Drinks Australia Ltd, owner of Gage Roads Brew Co. the well-known Western Australian producer of beer and cider.  It will comprise approximately 1,600m2 and will be designed to cater for both local people and tourists, including family groups.  It will be a large landmark that will act as a major feature at the western end of Fremantle Harbour.   

The brewery will showcase craft beer production on site whilst also offering a range of other services and facilities including tastings, education, brewery tours, food, drinks, functions, events, merchandise, entertainment and take-away.  Food, including substantial meals, will be available with an emphasis on Western Australian produce.

A large range of Gage Roads beer and cider produced on site will be available.  A selection of other liquor items will also be offered including wine, champagne and other craft beers and ciders produced elsewhere in Western Australia.  Only craft beer and cider produced by Gage Roads and other Western Australian producers, produced in Western Australia, will be available in packaged form to take-away.  The small packaged liquor section proposed will be a boutique WA craft beer and cider specialist, intended to promote the Western Australian beer and cider production industry.

Under the proposed licence, there would be no obligation for patrons to consume liquor with a meal, or to be seated whilst drinking liquor (unless required under government regulation such as the current COVID-19 trading requirements in the liquor and hospitality industry across Western Australia during 2020).

The applicant intends to seek approval for the standard trading hours permitted for a tavern licence under the Liquor Control Act 1988 (WA) which are from 6am to midnight Monday to Saturday and 10am to midnight on Sunday.  Usually, however, actual opening times will mostly be from mid-morning and the premises will often close before midnight.
