In August 1896, John Coleman who had been granted a brewery licence for the Esperance Cordial Factory, at lot 55 Dempster street, announced that the “Esperance Aerated Waters” will now be carried out as the “Esperance Brewing and Aerated Waters Co”.

Mr W. Falkner from the Stanley Brewery, in Perth, was going to be the brewer. The brewery advertised Esperance Ale and Cordials, plus Aerated Waters, and on opening day on the 31st October 1896, advertised to supply free drinks all day.
