    Home Sweet Home – Little Creatures To Stay At Iconic Original Fremantle Venue

    Leading brewer Lion has negotiated a deal which will see it stay at its iconic Fremantle home at 40 Mews Road – to coincide with this announcement, it is celebrating with a special limited batch of ‘A Spezial Lager’ special pale lager served exclusively on site throughout the Summer to mark the occasion.

    The current home of the Great Hall, the purchase means that the original birthplace of Little Creatures has been secured as the home of ground-breaking brewer for the future.

    Carrie Watson, Group Operations Manager, Hospitality at Little Creatures said since last year’s announcement about the redevelopment of Little Creatures at 42 Mews Road last year, a common theme emerged in conversations with the team and community around their love for the current venue, its rich history and its iconic status.

    “We know that our team, WA locals and visitors have so much love for this place. With a very rich and colourful 22 years of history on the Fremantle Harbour, this venue has been at the heart of countless catch ups with friends, milestone celebrations and community events,” Watson said.

    “So, when a new opportunity arose for us to stay in our original home we jumped at the chance.

    “When we made our announcement last year that we would need to move, the option of buying the existing lease wasn’t on the table. We are very pleased this opportunity has come up.”

    With Little Creatures already a ‘must visit’ tourist attraction with up to a million visitors a year, the purchasing of the lease means transformation of the existing venue can now be considered which will celebrate and preserve the history of Little Creatures in Fremantle.

    “We will invest in taking our famous WA hospitality experience to the next level, putting it at the forefront of Australian craft brewery venues once again.

    “Maintaining our presence at our home means we can now look at making the original Little Creatures venue even better.

    “Fremantle is the heart of Little Creatures and it always will be. We are committed to Freo and we are very excited about what this investment will mean not just for Little Creatures, but the wider precinct.”

    The purchase of the lease at 40 Mews Road provides certainty to the Little Creatures team, its loyal customers and brewing operations with disruptions to operations minimised.

    In a special nod to our original birthplace brewery, Little Creatures will release a limited single batch of pale lager to coincide with this announcement.

    ‘A Spezial Lager’ is brewed with six different malts a selection of new world and noble hop varieties tocreate a bold and distinctive flavour. It will only be available from our Little Creatures Fremantle venue throughout the Summer to celebrate our rich history at this unique venue that we’ve been ableto share with locals and visitors alike for the last 22 years.
