Pirate Life Brewery is expanding to Western Australia, with a new venue opening in Perth in 2020.
Located in Perth’s CBD at the old Sony building, the new venue will be able to accommodate more than 1000 patrons and is just a stone’s throw away from Perth Arena, Yagan Square and a multitude of hotels.
Pirate Life Perth will be spread over three floors, holding an in-house brewery, private dining room, hybrid rooftop beer garden, restaurant, with three bars and an open plan kitchen.
Dubai’s Stickman Tribe, founded by Perth born Marcos Cain, will be designing the venue in collaboration with the brewer and hospitality group Sneakers & Jeans.
The Pirate Life founders were originally from Perth, however they took the project to Adelaide five years ago.
Co-founder, Jared “Red” Proudfoot said: “Almost five years since we moved to Adelaide to set up Pirate Life, its bloody exciting to have this opportunity to spend some time back in WA and set up a shiny new brewpub with Andy and his team.
“We will be brewing beers exclusive to the venue and continually be challenging our brewers to pump out regular one-off brews pushing the boundaries of what beer can be.”
Sneakers & Jeans head Andy Freeman added: “There is a lot of synergies between Pirate Life and Sneakers & Jeans, so we are excited to be bringing a new bold concept to the market. Carlton & United Breweries introduced me to Red, Jack and his father, MC back in 2018 and we hit it off. The conversation about bringing the Pirate Life experience to Perth has been running hot for 12 months and we are now ready to reveal it. Perth and Australia have never seen anything like this; I’m pumped.”
Construction of the venue is set to start and to open in 2020.
Carlton and United bought Pirate Life Brewing in 2017.
