THE two biggest breweries in Bassendean have obtained approval to operate at a larger site located 1km away from their old home after initially moving without council permission.
Brewcorp, the owner of Nail Brewing and Feral Brewing Company, had been producing beers at 301 Collier Road for four years and moved into Lot 123, 323 Collier Road in October.
According to a Town of Bassendean report, officers inspected the site on October 24 where operations and works had commenced without approval.
Councillors granted the development approval for the change of use of Lot 123 to a brewery, a warehouse and offices at a council meeting on December 13.
Part of the approval included the landowner entering into a legal agreement with the Town lodging of the caveat on the title, marking 78 car bays and not exceeding 12 employees.
Nail Brewing owner John Stallwood said Nail and Feral had outgrown the old site and had been waiting for council approval.
“It is great to move up the road to a bigger facility,” he said.
“It is a bigger site so there are going to be more expenses to start with but the whole idea is to enable us to grow both Nail and Feral in the coming year.”
