Australian brewer Little World Beverages has decided not to build a brewery in Jarrahdale, south east of Perth.

The company, the parent of niche brewer Little Creatures, has instead opted to build on a site close to its existing Fremantle facility.

Little World Beverages is looking to build a brewery to meet booming domestic demand for its premium beer. In the year to 30 June, the company saw revenues leap almost 30%.

Little World Beverages chairman Ian Cochrane said yesterday (28 September): "Due diligence undertaken on the two potential locations for our new brewery has shown the Fremantle site to be clearly the most advantageous."
