Their beers range from traditional West Coast Lager’s to the exciting and more intriguing releases such as the Milk Stout.

The Beerfarm is a brewery that not only produces brilliant beers, but has a desire to look after the environment and deliver brilliant experiences in the process.
Little Creatures Brewing, Fremantle
Titled as one of the best breweries in WA, the original Little Creatures Brewery on the west coast in Fremantle was established in 1999, and a small move in 2005 led them to be positioned in their current brewery. The vision was to produce an American Pale Ale, and boy did they succeed. The hugely popular beer can be bought across the country, and a visit to the Fremantle brewery is a must for any beer lover. The Little Creatures Brewery team has since changed the traditional brewery style and created an open and welcoming place to see how a beer is really made, with brilliant tours and a gorgeous venue to eat and drink.

Representative of life in Margaret River, the Colonial Brewing Company craft beers in a completely uncomplicated way. They produce a wide range of beers, with their Margaret River brewery being one of the first breweries to open on the west coast.

Eagle Bay Brewing Co
The Eagle Bay Brewing Co has a brewery, restaurant and vineyard all running in conjunction, producing some of the best eating and drinking experiences around. The beers are brewed using the German Purity Laws and, as a result, are a fresh and high quality beer with no nasties.

This Margaret River brewery also specialises in ciders, with an apple-infused Cheeky Cider that uses apples from the region, since being titled as the 2017 Lager winner in the Perth Royal Beer Awards.
What seems from the exterior to be a normal brewhouse is in fact one of the most creative and festive craft beer breweries in Western Australia. Residing on McCoy and Blaikie Street in Myaree, here craft beer lovers will find a brewery (McCoy) on one side, and the Brewhouse (Blaikie) on the other. The beers are made fresh in house and are ready to be enjoyed in an exciting and festival themed bar. Where better to enjoy the beers crafted in a brewery than a brewhouse that backs on to it? First created for a festival and canned not long after, Otherside Brewing attempts to bring people together through beer, and they sure do succeed.
