WEST END CHIMNEY CEREMONY

29 09 2015

TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 29 FROM 11AM AT THE WEST END BREWERY – ALL WELCOME

The West End Chimney unveiling ceremony is a mainstay on the SANFL finals calendar, and has been presented by West End Brewery since the early days when the brewery resided in Hindley Street.

The first painting of the Brewery Chimney was on Monday 4 October 1954, two days after the Grand Final when Port Magpies were victorious over the West Adelaide ‘Bottletops’.

The infamous picture of Fos Williams stirring the paint for the first ever chimney painting recommended that there should be a red stripe underneath Port’s colours to signify West’s gallant fight.This format has remained when painting the colours on the chimney to the current day.

The Chimney, standing some 25 metres from the roof of the Engine Room on Port Road, symbolises the great battle of the SANFL teams during their finals season part of a very strong local league of football.

Win or lose the tradition continues to bring respect and recognition to the SANFL Premiership teams each year.
