Breheny’s Gippsland Brewery Poster
$24.00 – $85.00
Richard Jamieson started brewing in Dawson Street in 1864, shifted to York Street soon after, and sold out to James Pettit in 1871. He named the brewery the Victoria, and after twenty-six years, he sold his well-established business to the Breheny brothers, who changed the name to the Gippsland Brewery Pty Ltd.
The new company formed in 1897 continued to prosper. Edward Breheny was the brewer-manager, and Gippsland Brewery beers and stout were distributed widely throughout Victoria’s East Gippsland district. Later, Edward’s brother, Michael B. Breheny, took over the management of the business. Of Irish descent, the Breheny family, fathers and sons, brothers and cousins, all at some period from the 1850s, and for the next 130 years, had been involved in the brewing industry in Australia.
The Breheny brothers sank a well, which provided ample pure water for brewing and cooling. Previously, they had been dependent on the town supply, where the water was not quite as suitable for brewing. They installed a whistle, and its shrill sound, announcing the starting and finishing of shifts, was part of daily life at Sale. Part of daily life was also the consumption of the company’s very popular Lager, Stout and Gippsland Bitter.
The brewery finally closed in 1936, and by 1953 the buildings had become so dilapidated that the council ordered their demolition.
