    Hi there. The Grifter has been such a fantastic addition to the local community. I have taken both my parents to the Grifter many times on weekend afternoons and they love it also. Places like the Grifter add variety and culture in the inner west and should be supported.

    This is a fantastic and responsible venue that is doing great things. To have it in the community is an asset to the area. 40 patrons in such a large space is a shame - it could easily accommodate more. Sydney needs places like this, grifter enriches the community and local experience.

    Total support for this growing business. Grifter responsibly enrich the culture of the community and are very supportive and respectful of their surroundings. Sydney needs to get behind and help out venues like this.

    The Grifter is the kind of establishment that a neighbourhood can take pride in. A friendly, inclusive and social space that champions a new kind of drinking culture that has emerged alongside the meteoric rise of craft beer in sydney. It's a venue that favours appreciation over intoxication and an invaluable addition to the social favroc of any community. I wholeheartedly support the proposed changes to The Grifter brewery.

    The Grifter Brewing Company is an asset to the local community. Between the contained off-road location and the owners' strong social conscience these changes would have no foreseeable negative impacts on the surrounding businesses and residents. It's a no brainer

    These changes/additions to the brewery and the area will be a great opportunity to contiue to support local business.

    A unique venue that allows people to learn more about the craftsmanship of the work that goes on.

    Excellent recommendations for an absolute gem of a venue. Owners and staff continue to drive Marrickville forward as a supportive, inclusive, creative and innovative zone. Venues like this are the soul of our thriving innerwest.

    I live interstate and visit this venue whenever I am in town. It is a great place, in a great area that attracts and encourages responsible social interactions from locals as well as visitors. I fully support the approval of this application and its outlined changes and look forward to its continual growth and development.

    I visit this area every time I visit Sydney. This venue is an amazing asset to the region and I would hope to see approval for this application. The venue adds value to the community from a social and economical perspective.

    These changes/additions to the brewery will be fantastic!
    The more support for this place the better, great venue, great people!

    I think it would only be a step in the right direction and hope they get approved :)

    This is a great spot, run by excellent people who deserve to be able to grow their business and offer a destination for people to enjoy.

    I fully support these changes and hope they are approved.

    We need more establishments like this in Sydney. This is the kind of drinking culture the council should be supporting, safe, responsible and respectful spaces where people can socialise. The pool room sounds great as well. Full support.

    A great small business that brings responsible and discerning patrons to the area. A bigger capacity would mean The Grifter operators would be able to showcase their excellent product to the wider community, bringing more business to the area and helping to create an environment that encourages a cultural appreciation of great dining and drinking. Allowing the public access to a pool table or other typical non-gambling games is fairly standard, and can only serve to make an establishment a more desirable and convivial destination, while encouraging an environment that is not solely centred around alcohol consumption. An obvious win-win.

    Grifter Brewery is an important part of the growing brewing scene in the Inner West of Sydney. The industry is growing at a fast rate and in order to help maintain that momentum, Grifter should absolutely be able to increase their capacity and trading hours. We are all in this together. I am a local resident and work in the industry and fully support the application.

    As a local resident this proposal has my full support in order to support small business. It will also provide locals greater options of venues to meet up for responsible and safe evenings out away from the rabble that are now encroaching on areas closer to the city

    Excellent and always responsible operators. An extended capacity would allow this to be a viable social meeting place for locals in Marrickville, away from the over crowded Newtown. The increased capacity would also help showcase this world class brewery and further establish Marrickville as a home for high quality local food and drink in Sydney.

    This is modest capacity for a venue of circa 700 metres supplying craft beer for locals by locals.

    Music, pool room and additional hours would be great.

    Small businesses should be encouraged.

    This is such a lovely place that really benefits the local community, in full support of independent businesses who work so hard to create such a warm, welcoming space. There's so much potential for a larger capacity and longer opening hours, Sydney needs more places like this!

    These are necessary changes that will support a business that is doing great things for the community. Grifter Brewing has a beer tap in every pub across the city and interstate – people know this brand and are looking for a place to meet and appreciate the great things these guys are doing!
