Lo­cal brew­ers to cheers new beers

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - Tyne Lo­gan

An Esper­ance brew­ery has plans to in­crease its pro­duc­tion, with two new beers ready to hit the mar­ket in com­ing weeks.

Since open­ing six weeks ago, Lucky Bay Brew­ing has be­gun to get the busi­ness ball rolling, brew­ing on av­er­age once a week.

The brew­ery cur­rently sells three beers but will soon be adding two more to its col­lec­tion — a homestead ale and a dark beer.

The Lucky Bay team has been en­joy­ing nam­ing the new beers, with owner Nigel Metz list­ing a num­ber of in­ven­tive names for their new prod­ucts.

“The dark beer is go­ing to be called Black Jack Pirate Porter af­ter the pirate out on Middle Is­land,” he said.

“He was Aus­tralia’s only known pirate and he was a bit of a rough and wild fel­low, so that’s why we’ve cho­sen him.”

He said an­other beer would be called Cy­clops, which would be “big, heavy and se­ri­ous” like the Esper­ance “Cy­clops” surf break.

Mr Metz said he hoped to ex­pand dis­tri­bu­tion across the re­gion, with his sights set on get­ting the brew­ery’s beer into some Kal­go­or­lie pubs.

He said come win­ter, the com­pany would be do­ing more ex­per­i­ments, hop­ing to in­cor­po­rate lo­cal honey into their drinks.

Lucky Bay was launched at the Pier ho­tel in De­cem­ber.
