Dingo Brewing Co: Fremantle residents say no to proposed brewpub on Packenham Street

Fremantle residents have refused to throw a dog a bone, with their concerns resulting in the team behind a proposed Dingo Lager-branded brewpub at 47 Packenham Street withdrawing their development application.

The iconic century-old Dingo Flour logo was due to pop up in Fremantle’s West End with Great Southern Flour Mills, which owns the successful WA beer brand Dingo Lager, planning to open a 500-capacity tavern in late 2023.

Those plans were unveiled in early June, with interested parties able to comment on the development application via the City of Fremantle until 11.59pm on June 9.

Dingo owner Matthew Walker and partners are now on the hunt for an alternate site.

The proposed two-storey hospitality venue, named Dingo Brewing Co., was touted as a “flagship venue” connecting Great Southern Flour Mills’ brands of farming, beef and beer to the port city.

The brewpub would be the company’s first venue and would offer a “unique, innovative and boss-friendly food and beverage concept … centered around WA’s own Dingo Beer offering, together with high-quality, local, award-winning beef product from Margaret River” .

Those plans are now in limbo.
