Big move for Boston

INNER PERTH is salivating at the prospect of Denmark’s Boston Brewing Co opening a boutique outlet on Albany Highway in Victoria Park.

Victoria Park Councillor Brian Oliver told The Weekender he looked forward to the venue opening soon.

The new micro-brewery is located on the north-west side of a distinctive kidney-shaped roundabout at the corner of Kent Street.

“The fact we’re going to have a new venue to attract visitors to the area will be good,” Cr Oliver said.

“We have so many pubs along the strip so it cements us as a great strip to go for a variety of venues and drinking places.”

His councillor colleague Bronwyn Ife said the Victoria Park community was “pretty excited” about the brewery.

Boston will occupy the corner, ground floor shop-front of a new 106-apartment building slated for completion in August.

Tom Letherbarrow, project architect for Hillam Architects, which designed the building, said Boston was “keen to make headway in Perth”.

He said he believed a boutique brewery on the corner would be “very successful”.

Renders for the building clearly show the Boston logo on a sign out front.

On Monday, on Boston’s Facebook Page, a photograph of the building under construction was posted above the question: “Who is looking forward to seeing us in Vic Park later in the year?”.

Close to The Weekender’s deadline, Boston General Manager Glen Daniel was contacted for comment.
