Can-do attitude gets beers moving
It has been open for just a few weeks, but the first beers bearing the Shelter Brewing Co name were canned, boxed and on their way for distribution last week.
The new waterfront brewery opened to much publicity and acclaim last month and its product is now available at pubs and bottle shops around the State.
The new canning line was funded through the State Government’s Regional Economic Development grants and the South West Development Commission.
Brewer and director Jason Credaro said after such a successful opening, it was exciting for the business to launch its retail arm.
“The canning line means we can start a retail arm and eventually start exporting Shelter beer, sharing a taste of Busselton far and wide,” he said.
“Having our own canning line means the beer is at its freshest when it’s canned right here in the brewery.”
In the three weeks since opening, the new brewery has poured more than 33,000 beers.
SWDC chief executive Mellisa Teede said she was pleased to see the region’s reputation for locally brewed beer keep strengthening
“Shelter Brewing Co is a great asset for the region, and with the canning line, they are now well placed to capitalise on export opportunities,” she said.
