We interviewed Dane Adkins, owner of the local brewery, Sweet Amber Brew Café. He tells us all about his Semaphore story and what he loves most about the local community.
What is your full name and the name of your business?
I’m Dane Adkins, owner of Sweet Amber Brew Café and recently opened Brewery in Regency Park.
How long have you lived in Semaphore? And how long have you operated this local business?
I returned to Adelaide at the start of 2015 and opened the business shortly after. Our first day of trade was Friday, 27th November 2015 right in time for the hectic Semaphore Street Fair.
What do you like most about Semaphore?
The very first thing I noticed about Semaphore and the local residents is the sense of community. The people here are accepting, caring and a little quirky. There’s character here. In the buildings, the businesses and the locals. And they know how to drink beer!
Can you tell us something about yourself that not many people would know?
I’m eloping in July!
