Allan Jefferies, the former state manager of the company behind well-known Perth pubs The Queens, The Brass Monkey and the Sail and Anchor, has been recruited by Empire Beer Group to manage the operations of its Colonial Brewing Company pubs.

Mr Jefferies left Australian Leisure and Hospitality Group two years ago, following the pub group’s acquisition by Woolworths and Victorian publican Bruce Mathieson. Since his departure from ALH, Mr Jefferies has been consulting to various hospitality businesses throughout Western Australia through his business, Complete Hospitality.

Empire says Mr Jefferies will be integral to the operation of its venues, which include Margaret River’s Colonial Brewery and the yet-to-open East Perth venue.

The beer group also revealed that it expected to settle its acquisition of The Royal Bar and Brasserie on July 17.
