Our Story

Whitfords Brewing Company by Beerland (WBC) is located in Westfiled Whitford City’s new Dining & Entertainment Hub. WBC is the only fully operational brewery between Northbridge and Mindarie, producing a core range of Beerland Beer onsite including small batch seasonal brews. 

Featuring similar stylings to sister venue and flagship brewpub, Northbridge Brewing Company, WBC was designed with the local community in mind split over two levels including a rooftop Skydeck with its views of the Indian Ocean, an outdoor beer garden with alfresco dining, a balcony with plenty of seating overlooking Whitfords Avenue, and an entire shopping complex right at your doorstep.

We stock our fridges with a wide range of local and international beers, wine, spirits and cocktails and we seek to provide the freshest produce including premium steak cuts, crayfish in addition to our pub classics with a twist.

With regular menu specials and fun food events such as Man vs Food and Chilli Fest Week, there is something for everyone.

If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite we can also host your next function, catering for groups of 10 and up to 750 guests.

WBC is open daily, Monday to Sunday from 11am until late. Pop in for a brew or two!

Please note we do not take table reservations as we are a walk-in venue. 

HEAD BREWER

Under the careful eye of our Head Brewer and Fellow of the Institute of Brewing and Distilling, Ken Arrowsmith, Beerland brews its beers onsite in its 12HL brew-house. Beerland’s core range consists of good beer in a variety of styles such as Pale Ale, Lager, Wheat, Kolsch and IPA. 

Ken has been responsible for some of the best beers in Australia. ‘Hopping’ between both Beerland’ brewpubs, Ken brews with great skill and finesse having a Bachelor of Applied Science (Chem). He is an active member of the Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD) and in 2004, Ken was awarded the prestigious IBD Fellowship.

A vet of the industry, Ken’s brewed for more than enough breweries throughout his lifetime including Tooheys, South Australian Brewing Company, commissioning and operating of The Old Lion Hotel in North Adelaide, Director of Operations at the Swan Brewing Co right where he started as an Assistant Chemist.

Ken and the brewing team produce a wide range of seasonal small-batch craft beers from dark lager, Get Schwarty – a malty dark beer brewed in the traditional style of a Schwarzbier – to a fruity twist on the classicly European style of Sasion in Taking the Pith, to the latest batch of tropical James Street Juice – a New England inspired pale ale has all the hallmarks of a tropical fruit juice, pouring a thick golden haze with pineapple, passionfruit, orange and mango on the nose.

Ken enjoys playing a bit of soccer, basketball, and even kite surfing – in addition to tasting beers of all styles and provenance.
