Lion Nathan has announced plans for a $10 million upgrade to its West End Brewery in Thebarton, the site where West End Draught is brewed.

The brewery, which this year celebrates its 150 year anniversary, will receive modern upgrades to its site in brewing and process service areas.

Further upgrades will take place over the next 12 months including the replacement of C02 processing equipment and refrigeration plant, the instillation of a beer processing centrifuge, the replacement of the brewery’s aging filters, and the upgrade and automation of a yeast room.

Lion Nathan operations director Peter David said this investment in the West End Brewery demonstrated the company’s commitment to both the Thebarton site and the South Australian market.

“This upgrade will bring much of the brewing and process service areas at West End Brewery up to world class standards, reflecting our commitment to sustainability, and our ongoing support for this site and the products it produces,” he said.
