Eddie Maguire and Gerry Ryan are bringing a $10 million brewery to Dandenong South.
Greater Dandenong Council gave the green light to the project at 16 Jayco Drive at the Monday 9 October council meeting.
Jayco founder Mr Ryan watched on in the gallery.
He later told the Journal that a few other local people were involved in the commercial brewery, as well as Maha chef Shane Delia and Collingwood Football Club president Maguire.
“The beer will be flowing by April,” Mr Ryan said.
It’ll be known as Brick Lane in a nod to the London brewery street and Melbourne’s laneways.
“What we’re doing is a tasting room there as well and some function space,” he said.
“Today breweries are very popular places to visit so we’re offering a range of food as well.
“It’s a very exciting project.
“We’ve already got some international contracts to export beer.
“We want it to be one of Dandenong’s local tourist attractions and also known for making world-class beer.”
Mr Ryan said Brick Lane would be brewing a pilsner, a lager and another variety yet to be decided.
The project will create about 30 jobs in the brew house and in hospitality.
The 1.42 hectare brewery site is on the corner of Imagine Way, at the entrance to a newly-developed industrial estate.
The planning application proposes opening seven days a week, 11am to 10pm, with a maximum capacity of 50 guests.
