About the Brewer --->
Many great ideas have been hatched over a beer…
Gage Roads Brewing Co was no different. It was 2002, at the end of a long shift while enjoying the fruits of their labour, that brewmasters Bill Hoedemaker and Peter Nolin first discussed opening their own brewery. They were one of Australia's most highly awarded brewing teams: they'd pushed the boundaries, brewing the beers that helped put Fremantle's Sail and Anchor Pub Brewery back on the map, along the way doing their part to kick-start a craft beer revolution in Australia.
Like the beers they brew, the idea went down very well. They formed a partnership with Bill's brother John – a like-minded entrepreneur – and together they embarked on a mission to establish a brewery underpinned by their unbridled creative talents and obsession with quality. With that, Gage Roads Brewing Co, Australia’s Craft Brewery, was born.
At the time, establishing a craft brewery in a market dominated by huge players may have seemed like commercial madness to some, but the team at Gage Roads knew that by staying true to its ‘Brewed by Fussy Bastards’ ethos, success would follow. Just three years after that initial conversation, Gage Roads’ first brew – an expertly crafted malt-driven lager – hit the shelves in Western Australian bottle shops.
Today, Gage Roads produces a bevy of beers. From a sessionable midstrength Pilsner, to an award winning English IPA, all the way through to a category defining Australian Strong Ale.
