A NEW micro-brewery is set to open in Maylands after some planning ping-pong between the applicant and Bayswater council.
The Seasonal Brewing Company – a 620sqm boutique micro-brewery with a tasting and dining area at 175 Guildford Road – was approved by council on Tuesday night.
The council had originally approved the micro-brewery in March, but owner Nick Southwell wasn’t happy with some of the conditions including those relating to parking, the use of forklifts and outdoor lighting.
He went to the State Administrative Tribunal, which asked Baysy council to reconsider some of their conditions at Tuesday’s meeting.
“The facility will produce premium quality beer on site to satisfy the high end of the craft beer market,” read the council officer’s report.
“Due to the small scale nature of the brewing operation, there will be an emphasis on experimentation and attempts to create unique styles that are not produced elsewhere in the state.
“The primary source of income will come from on-site sales in the tasting area and by way of takeaways in two litre containers.
“In addition to this the external wholesale distribution of kegs to other bars in the Perth area will form an additional source of revenue.”
The venue will have a limit of 200 patrons and be open 5pm-10pm on weekdays and noon to 10pm on weekends.
Two existing buildings at the site will be interlinked and there will be an al fresco facing Guildford Road.
A 14-bay car park for the micro-brewery and one loading bay is proposed at 66A Seventh Avenue, opposite Ellard Lane.
