WA Craft Breweries
Feral – Hop Hog: Set in the Swan Valley, we love these guys and their place in the Valley is pretty cool too. Tasty food and great craft beers plus you can try some interesting and different beers you can’t buy in the stores. Some of our staff love the Watermelon Warhead a tasty, light sour German wheat beer brewed at just 2.9%
Matso’s – Ginger Beer & Mango Beer: When you’re in Broome, visiting Matso’s brewery and sitting on the veranda sipping the good stuff is a must! Steve loved it!
Gage Roads – Single Fin Summer Ale & Narrow Neck: Named after the part of the ocean between Fremantle and Rottnest Island off the coast of Western Australia, these guys have been making a range of fantastic ales and lagers for 14 years!
Eagle Bay Brewing – Kolsch: Since 2010, third generation local farming siblings Nick, Astrid and Adrian d’Espeissis have owned and run Eagle Bay Brewing Co with the land owned by the family since the 50s. They make handcrafted beers brewed in small batches, with four ingredients; yeast, hops, rainwater, malted barley, plus a bit of sunshine!
Mash Brewing – Freo Doctor & Copy Cat: Another fantastic really local brewery, which is great! Based out of the Swan Valley and a bit further south; Bunbury. We love their motto; ‘We believe that beer is about enjoying life and that shines through in all of our products.’
Nail – Pale Ale: This fully independently owned and operated brewery in Bassendean started from small beginnings, with John Stallwood, an idea in 1994 with his home brew kit. Fast forward to early 2000 John had set up his brewery at a pub Perth’s CBD where they poured the first pint of Nail Ale. And we love the fact that the 5 beers are now produced only 12 kms away and a few limited releases!
Colonial Brewing – Small Ale & Kolsch Ale: We’re loving the fact these guys are in Margaret River (since 2004) and two years ago set up a brewery in Port Melbourne. They say the philosophy behind the Colonial Brewing Company is “Uncomplicated.” We agree and love their hand-crafted beer and they make cider too, from cold-pressed Australian apple. Plus we like the fact they package in cans!
*The above are just a few of the many beers these breweries produce.
