WA Government’s liquor laws spur business for local brewery

Kalgoorlie-Boulder owned and operated Beaten Track Brewery has been flourishing since the WA Government’s new liquor laws took effect.

In a first, the new laws have enabled Beaten Track Brewery to showcase its products at more pop-up events such as music festivals and private events.

WA Premier Mark McGowan visited the artisan beer makers, which brew every week and bottle their range of more than 120 beers in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, to understand the business and tourism growth it has experienced.

Increased interest towards Beaten Track Brewery products has been attributed to the extra opportunities it has been afforded, including attendance at pop-up events since the new liquor laws were passed in WA Parliament in June 2018.

The WA Government’s recent changes to the Liquor Control Amendment Act 2018 have strengthened the industry, enabling licensees across Western Australia to grow their business through permits to sell and supply spirits, providing takeaway products and easier access to more pop-up events.
