Last week’s announcement of the closure of the West End Brewery was a huge blow, but some of the traditions popularised by the brewery don’t look like they are going anywhere.

Almost immediately after the announcement of the brewery’s shuttering, questions about the future of the traditional Christmas lights and unveiling of the SANFL Premier’s colours on the chimney were being asked.

While the future of the Christmas lights remain up in the air, Soda has some good mail that the chimney tradition will continue into future years.

He even has an idea for a back up option if the chimney is unable to remain in place.
