DEMAND for their product has encouraged a WA brewing team to establish a new base in Melville.

Otherside Brewing Co, which has grown from a humble beginning in Fremantle, will operate from its new Myaree warehouse from late April.

The brewery will initially produce about 300,000 litres of beer per annum, but can be up-scaled to pump out more than one million litres per year.

Director David Chitty said the move to a new home was made to meet growing demand for the team’s range.

Otherside now has five lines available at about 100 bottle shops and 50 tap points in Perth.

“We have come a long way from a festival brew and the opening of our first brewery is part of our planned growth and strategic plan,” Mr Chitty said.

Brewer Rhys Lopez said the McCoy Street complex would allow the team to control the entire supply chain.
