Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 4.39.45 pmOne of Fremantle’s most iconic pubs is being brought back to life after a twenty year hiatus as the rejuvenated Ball & Chain at The Esplanade Hotel.
The heritage-listed building, first established in 1850 by Captain Daniel Scott, is overflowing with features preserved from the original site including a glass shielded floor and wall display of the original cellar door limestone.
Australia’s first craft brewery and Fremantle’s own Matilda Bay Brewery has partnered with Ball & Chain to bring the iconic institution back to its roots coincidentally on its 30 year anniversary. Offering the widest range of Matilda Bay craft beer and ciders on tap than any other pub in Western Australia, craft beer lovers will be spoilt for choice.
Whisky enthusiasts are welcome to the Ball & Chain’s own Bourbon Room featuring floor to ceiling shelves loaded with the best range of whiskey brands from around the world.  Plus the Ball & Chain features a Pub Grub Menu hand selected to accompany your favourite craft beer of whisky.  The selection includes beef sliders, prawn skewers, pulled pork, and jalapeno poppers to name but a few.
Ball & Chain General Manager David Bornmann has spent countless hours researching the historic site and is pleased to finally be able to present the pub to the public.
