Sail & Anchor ‘Cabin Boy’ Poster


When Australian craft beer drinkers are asked to name their version of The Holy Land, Meccah, or Graceland the answer invariably leads to a little port town in the west called Fremantle. Those who have been around a little longer will be more specific and pinpoint the Sail & Anchor Hotel as the ‘birthplace’ of craft beer in this country.

It was back in 1984 when Phil Sexton led a team of keen and enthusiastic beer lovers to establish a rather neglected public house in which to brew their beer. The stranglehold of both the pale golden lager and the large local brewers’ tap contracts meant that the new and exciting brews made by Phil & Co had no market and the Sail & Anchor became the means to an end and the genesis of a craft brewing legend.

In 2010 ALH (Australian Leisure & Hospitality group, a part of Woolworth’s) closed down the brewing operations at the Sail & Anchor. Sail & Anchor branded beers would be brewed at “a small,local, independent brewery”.

Today, Sail & Anchor branded beers are appearing on shelves with the first four labels harking back to a gentler, less complicated time when beer held the promise of simple pleasure delivered through an honest product crafted by skilled and loving hands and a measure of honest toil. Bolt was one of the first beers brewed using the ‘independent’ brewery, ( I believe it was Gage Roads). The later incarnations are The Cat’s Shank, Boa’s Bind, Monkey Fist and Lark’s Foot and are Kolsch, Amber, Pale and Golden Ales respectively.
