The partnership will see Colonial Brewing Co. secure pourage rights at the CitiPower Centre at Junction Oval and cater for all of the Melbourne Stars’ official events.
Colonial Brewing Co. is a wholly independent, Australian-owned brewery that first opened its doors in Margaret River in 2004. Since then, Colonial Brewing Co. has grown into a national brand and found an East Coast home in Port Melbourne.
Specialising in uncomplicated and approachable beers, Colonial Brewing Co. will offer a range of handcrafted beers and a Cold Pressed Apple Cider to Victorian cricket fans to enjoy both at CitiPower Centre and beyond.
Colonial Brewing Co. Managing Director Lawrence Dowd said “Cricket represents everything we love about Australian sport and as an independent Australian-owned business, we’re excited to partner with Cricket Victoria, the Melbourne Stars and the Melbourne Renegades and support cricket fans and communities at every level of the game.”
“The partnership with Cricket Victoria allows us to provide support and create a positive difference to local communities across Victoria through grassroots cricket clubs”
“We’re delighted to see a shift toward independent and Australian-owned craft breweries moving into the arena of major sports sponsorships.”
Melbourne Stars Interim GM Blair Crouch welcomed the new Colonial Brewing Co. partnership with the club.
“We’re really pleased to have Colonial Brewing Co. partner with us here at the Melbourne Stars. Colonial Brewing Co. are great business example of innovation and growth and we’re proud to have them on board and serve their products at official Melbourne Stars functions throughout this season and the next three years,” Crouch said.
The Colonial Brewing Co. East Coast Brewery is located at 89 Bertie Street Port Melbourne and is open to the public for meals and drinks from Thursday to Sunday.
