20th August – 20th September


Island Market and Running With Thieves have joined forces to create a delicious Mediterranean influenced Pilsner called CAN OF BEER.

Described as the perfect remedy for a salty mouth after a day in the surf, sand and sun, the exclusive brew will available from Thursday 20 August 2020 at $10 a can.

Designed primarily for Island Market, the fresh froth will be also be available at other Kailis Hospitality Group venues, The Shorehouse and Kailis Fish Market Cafe Fremantle, as well as selected bottle shops.

The flavour profile is a collaboration between Island Market Culinary Director, David Coomer, and Running With Thieves Head Brewer, Paul Gasmier.

“Each 375mL can will be bursting with herbaceous notes from German Hops, Hallertau and Saaz. The full and juicy hop flavours combine to create a balanced sharpness to the malt backbone, finishing with a creamy mouth feel from premium Australian malts” describes Gasmier.

CAN OF BEER is the next instalment in Island Market’s branded consumables range, following on from the successful launch of CAN OF SARDINES in 2018.

“Pilsners are delicious, particularly the more European styled and really suit the Mediterranean / Levantine culinary agenda at Island Market. We struggled to find a locally produced Pilsner we really liked so we teamed with Running With Thieves to produce our own. The idea for the brand CAN OF BEER evolved from our CAN OF SARDINES range which have been a huge hit. We intend on adding to the ‘CAN OF’ retail range later this year with more Island Market products” said Kailis Hospitality Group Managing Director, George Kailis.

Running With Thieves Managing Director, Scott Douglas adds:

“An opportunity to work with George and David is a privilege, they are the best at what they do and as new kids on the block in Fremantle, there’s a fair bit of pressure on us to get it right! With all our venues being directly on the coast we wanted a beer that not only complemented David’s culinary direction, but also reflected our lifestyles which is generally in or around the ocean” adds

Running With Thieves is an independent, employee-owned, West Australian boutique brewery and distillery, producing premium beer and spirits from its purpose built facility in South Fremantle.
