Gage Roads

Liking, as we do, a tasty drop on a hot day, we touched base with Gage Roads Brewing Co. brand ambassador Kyle Petrie to get the scoop on their seasonal offerings.

What does your role actually entail?

My role is to drive On-Premise Sales and Marketing for Gage Roads Brewing Co. I’m responsible for having our beers ranged in the best bars across Perth, the Gage social media pages, on premise events and sponsorship and, of course, quality control.

What’s the Gage Roads story?

Gage Roads has been brewing close to Fremantle for almost 10 years and now and is ranged in bottle shops nationally. It’s had some great success nationally but has lacked a voice here in WA. The past 12 months has been all about getting back in touch with the community and in particular quality local bars, retailers and the passionate craft beer lovers. It’s definitely challenging but rewarding.

Tell us about the summer range.

The new range of Gage beers we’ve just released comes at a really busy time for the brewery. We’ve just executed a brand refresh which means a new logo, new pack design, new brew processed and not one but three new products: Narrow Neck Session Ale, South Beach Summer Ale and Break Water Pale Ale. The new beers are all unfiltered and dryhopped so we’re retaining a lot of the flavour and hop characters that makes a great craft beer. They’re also all very sessionable beers which is due to a lower IBU count (bitterness) meaning once you’ve finished one you’ll most likely be coming back for another.

Got a personal favourite?

I’m loving the Narrow Neck right now. The brewers have nailed this one. It’s a Session IPA which has all the flavour and body of a full strength but sits at just 3.9% ABV which allows you to keep your senses in check.



Five Of The Best

Mojito – rum, sugar, lime and mint – the taste of Havana.

Margarita – tequila, triple sec and lime – don’t forget to salt the rim!

Pimm’s Cup – be a Lady Who Lunches.

Daiquiri – another gift from Cuba. Check out Hemingway’s personal recipe.
