Originally inspired by the Freo coast, Gage Roads’ long-awaited Freo brewpub is finally about to open its doors.
Perched on the Walyalup Waterfront, the ambitious new venue is scheduled to open on Thursday, January 20 and will transform the historic A Shed into a pumping, family-friendly pub, restaurant and brewery. With a gigantic capacity of 1500, it boasts a suitably gigantic 17.5m long bar. There’ll be plenty of space for their iconically WA beers – all of which will be crafted on-site in their 16 tank, 25-hectolitre brew-kit. As well as their classic favourites, you can expect to try a few Freo exclusive brews, too.
Alongside the beers, the kitchen (helmed by Danny Sanchez, formerly of Hadiqa and Melbourne’s Attica) will be dishing up some fun, coastal flavours: think snapper ceviche, Rotto swordfish schnitty with caviar béarnaise (phwoar) or a trio of fish, pork and vegan tacos.
We said family-friendly, and Gage Roads aren’t playing around when it comes to playgrounds – refurbishing a retired crayboat and a ’60s Land Cruiser into some next-level play equipment for the kids to explore while you take in the spectacular waterfront views. Alternatively, grab the crew and head inside to marvel at the epic murals by local artists Chris Nixon and Vee Casey, as well the brewery’s go-to illustrator Andy Murphy.
Gage Roads Freo will be open Monday to Sunday, 10:30am ’til late.
