BEER lovers rejoice, Australian brewery Running with Thieves is set to open a new brewery at the former Sealanes site in South Fremantle.

The site, which will also include a distillery and restaurant, will have the capacity to produce one million litres of beer and the distillery will produce a range of gin, vodka, rum and whisky.

Managing director Scott Douglas said Fremantle has always been the only choice for the brewery.

“The Sealanes site is iconic and bringing this historical warehouse back to life, it’s a great project to be apart of,” he said.

“We really appreciate the support and faith shown to us by the local community and Fremantle Council for working with us.”

The brewery is expected to be operational in July and the restaurant and bar for the summer of 2019/2020.
