Gage Roads wins Perth Stadium Beer Contract

Western Australia’s own Gage Roads Brewing Co. has secured the beer and cider supply contract for Perth Stadium. “When Western Australian companies win, the whole State benefits.” Premier Mark McGowan commented “Gage Roads is a true Western Australian success story – going from local start-up to become one of the country’s biggest independent brewers. Gage Roads supports WA farmers, manufacturers, the hospitality industry and a range of other sectors – meaning this contract win will create jobs throughout the economy.” The Premier added.
The Premier explained that the Palmyra-based company beat out competition from the Eastern States to secure the five-year deal with Perth Stadium – complementing the $22 million, the company already injects into hundreds of WA businesses each year. The deal will support the existing Gage Roads Brewing Co. southern suburbs workforce of 85 employees and as well as a range of other WA companies, including farmers, manufacturers, logistics providers and the hospitality industry. Gage Roads Brewing Co. is the biggest buyer of Western Australian grown malted barley, the majority of which is grown in the Wheatbelt enabling 11 million litres of beer and cider to be produced each year.
“Western Australians will have the opportunity to enjoy beer and cider brewed in their own backyard while enjoying sporting events and concerts at Perth Stadium. Gage Roads will increase their production markedly to keep up with the new demand generated by the Perth Stadium contract – and that is good news for the whole State.” Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray commented.
