Fresh winds blow through Indian Ocean brewhouse
There is a bit of old and a splash of new at a long-standing Perth craft brewery this week.
Firstly, Indian Ocean Brewing Co. will debut its recently arrived beer maestro - albeit one with form in the game.
Then the Mindarie operation will conduct a brewing arm-wrestle with another veteran of the caper.
And to top it off Indian Ocean will be the star of a popular northern suburbs festival.
Former Whitfords Brewing Company maestro Tom Fleay has joined the team to nurture the nectar and oversee a revamp of the beer menu.
He will be in the spotlight on Thursday and will sharing his fresh approach to brewing and plans for upcoming Small Batch releases.
He will also be making an excitingly fruity announcement regarding the brewery's new core range.
On the same night the full team will be going brew to brew with the hopheads at Little Creatures.
The sleeves are rolled up, the pint glasses are out, and the battle is on.
Everyone is welcome to witness the war and show your support (and drink $7 pints) for this major event.
And then on Saturday the Boardwalk Beer Festival will return to The Marina.
It might be worth staying locally to enjoy the triple beer treat.
