We can all admit that Victoria Quay’s A Shed has been in need of a bit of makeover for a while now, so you’ll be pleased to hear that the one and only Gage Roads has just scored a 40-year lease on the site and will be bringing us a microbrewery, restaurant and bar in the not so distant future.
Gage Roads has been brewing beer just outside of Freo since 2004 and they are beyond pumped to be building their first venue overlooking the actual Gage Roads—the shipping lane between Fremantle and Rottnest Island.
“Gage Roads is proud to bring new life and investment to Victoria Quay. Just like our beer, we value approachability and community. We love bringing people together. And that’s the cornerstone for this brewery and venue. It will be a place for locals, tourists and good times,” said Gage Roads Brewing Co-Chief Operating Officer, Aaron Heary.
Gage Roads has always been about supporting local, and the new brewery will do just that. They’ll be sourcing barley for the beer from West Aussie farms and the kitchen will be all about local produce and flavours.
Expect to see all their usual brews plus a few special releases and beers from smaller, regional WA breweries.
Work is set to begin this October and they’re hoping for a summer 2021/22 opening date, so get pumped.
