Gage Roads Brewing Co. was a struggling brand that needed a new range to legitimise it as a craft brewer and re-establish the brand name.

Gage Roads won more than a dozen awards at the 2016 Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA), including Champion Australian Beer for its Little Dove New World-style pale ale.
