Melbourne, Sunday: As a result of the popularity of Richmond Brewery beer, the Royal Oak Hotel in Fitzroy, which specialises in this new make of ales, has been doing a roaring trade.

The hotel was so crowded 6pm on Saturday that the licensee could not close his doors, and when the police arrived there were numerous fights in progress.
The police arrested ten of the brawlers. The police had to use their batons to disperse the rioters.
Recorder (Port Pirie, SA) Monday 11 February 1929
