From 2010 – 2013 they continued at the same location and started The Commons Local Eating House and Downtown Bar until selling to employees in 2013.The Restaurant & Bar turned over $1.8m annually and was featured in The New York Times, Gourmet traveler, the Australian, Sydney Morning Herald and the Qantas Magazine.
After selling The Commons, the couple returned to Gab’s family farm in Marlo East Gippsland and launched Sailors Grave Brewing which has gone on to become a hugely successful beer brand, selling both nationally and overseas.
Sailors Grave continually leverages its brand power to promote East Gippsland both locally and afar. Gab is a blue sky thinker and believes that collaboration is key to creating stronger and more resilient businesses & communities.
