WA's latest brewery opens doors, turns on beer taps

07 August, 2014

Something is brewing in the heart of the city at Northbridge Piazza. Western Australia's latest brewery, bar and restaurant, Northbridge Brewing Company (NBC) has swung open its doors and turned on the taps.

Comprising two storeys of bar and dining areas, as well as a rooftop Skydeck, all overlooking Northbridge Piazza and the city, NBC provides a welcoming, family-friendly environment for people of all ages.

Highly awarded Master Brewer Ken Arrowsmith will head-up the brewery, delivering four craft beers with an NBC twist. There will be a full bar including a range of other beers and ciders, along with an extensive wine list.

In-house brews

The in-house brews, which are only available over the bar, straight from the tank, currently includes Beerland Lager, Beerland Pale Ale, Beerland Wheat and Beerland Mild.

"At NBC we're looking to cater for every beer drinker, whether you're a beer aficionado, a novice hoping to increase your product knowledge, or someone who just has a love for the amber liquid – we have something for everyone," Ken Arrowsmith said.

"NBC is one of Australia's most sophisticated breweries of its size and its state-of-the-art technology provides extra flexibility for different beer styles, crafted to our own recipe. As well as our core range we'll also brew seasonal beers and rotate them through the menu on a regular basis."

NBC has a number of tasting options available including tasting trays, a Brew Master tasting package and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a Brewer for a Day with Ken. These can be coupled with a very flexible function offering that can cater for eight to 500 people.

Premium hospitality venue

Beerland Brewing, the group behind NBC, first had the vision to create a premium hospitality venue that would appeal to Western Australians some seven years ago.

"We've long recognised Western Australia as the home of the craft beer revolution in Australia and we were thrilled when Ken agreed to head up our brewery. NBC aims to deliver a relaxed hospitality experience where exceptionally well-made beer is the focus," Beerland Brewing Director, Michael Rasheed said.

NBC is adjacent to the Northbridge Piazza, on the corner of James and Lake Street in Northbridge. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. It offers a full menu with various dining options throughout the day and night.
