Can you brew-lieve your eyes? Western Australia’s (WA) famed beer, Swan Draught is set to be brewed back on the west coast after (almost) ten whole years of production in Adelaide and Sydney – we were robbed, right in front of us!
The liquid gold initially started bubbling away in WA from 1857, but in 2013 Swanny D’s parent company, Lion shifted brewing to West End Brewery in Adelaide – blasphemy.
As reported by The West’s, Simon Collins – the decision behind Lion’s impeccable move back west is to overcome supply chain issues.
Lion WA sales director, Jamie Ryan told The West a strict emulation process is in play to ensure consistency, eluding that WA will now be getting the crispest drops of Swan Draught in the nation – well deserved we reckon, it’s been a long ten years without.
And never fear, Swan Draught brewing will be in good hands from here on in; esteemed brewery Little Creatures will be at the helm of the delicate operation.
Finally, after all this time, we Western Australians can rest easy knowing our beloved Swan Draught is back home.
