Perth, are you ready for over 300 unique and exotic West Australian brews to come together in Perth?

BeerFest is Australia’s largest and longest-running beer festival and, luckily for us, they are due to hit Fremantle this November. From Friday 13 – Sunday 15 November 2020, the beer festival in Fremantle, Perth will take over the picturesque Esplanade Park delivering the best local beer and gourmet food Western Australia has to offer. There has never been a better time to support our local, world-class brewers.

If you’re not a huge fan of beer fear not! The Fremantle BeerFest will also serve up ciders, wines and cocktails. There will be unique concoctions and limited-edition creations such as Caramel Popcorn Piña Coladas, Nitro Chocolate Stouts and Bubblegum Cider. We are definitely intrigued!

As well as delicious street eats to complement your beverages, there will be non-stop activities including free masterclasses, brewer trivia, a cocktail making class and even foosball and table tennis for those feeling competitive. Live bands and DJs will also keep you entertained while you soak up the relaxing Fremantle ambiance.

BeerFest’s brewers, distillers and cider makers showcased originate from all over the state, ranging from Kununurra and Broome right down to Albany. To give you a taste of what to expect, get excited for delicious craft beer from Matso’s Brewery, Txoko Brewing, Funk Cider, Margaret River Brewhouse and Boston Brewing Co, just to name a few. In terms of food, delight your tastebuds at Baolicious, Margaret River Burger Co, Temel’s Turkish Food Van and many other tasty and quick street eats and food vans. If you want to know more, check out their website for all of the stallholders.

Most notably, on Saturday 14 there will be three interactive masterclass programs featuring tastings, forums, and demonstrations hosted by brewers from different West Australian regions. These regions will be competing against each other, so it’s up to you to decide who will be the winner! Have a taste and vote in the Perth vs Fremantle, South West vs North West, and Great Southern vs Peel Regional Beer Rumble.

This year’s Fremantle BeerFest will also include the unveiling of the winning beer from the Little Creatures Little Home Brewers Challenge, which is a lemongrass and ginger American Pale Ale called Grass Head. Be sure to check it out at the festival, and if you love it, it will be on tap for a limited time at the Fremantle and Geelong Little Creatures breweries.
