Proudly headed by Sean Symons, whose experience has spanned over 20 years, starting out in the 90s as a fresh faced enthusiast, approaching Chuck Hahn several times to land a position on the Malt Shovel packaging line to one of Western Australia’s more prominent brewing figures.
Things have certainly evolved over the years, in a career that has seen Sean working around Australia for Swan, Tooheys, XXXX and even running a brewpub on Vietnam’s Nha Trang coast before taking charge of production at Whitelakes – where now, with a plethora of accolades, degrees and brewing qualifications under his belt, he actively gives back to the industry as chief judge for the Perth Royal Beer Awards amongst a bevy of competitions.
Under Seans direction, Whitelakes Brewery houses their iconic 25 hectolitre HGM brew kit, featuring a hexagonal brew deck designed so a single brewer can effortlessly navigate and manage multiple vessels from a single vantage.
This unique design has carved out a technical, stainless steel heart that has seen Whitelakes Brewing grow from being a quiet achiever to now one of Western Australia’s more prominent figures on the landscape.
