Perth Breweries and Microbreweries

WA is home to many breweries and microbreweries that produce award-winning beer. This is a reflection of the passion and commitment of local master brewers to their craft which has led to WA gaining a solid reputation for fine hand-crafted beers.

Aussies have long loved their beers and you'll find many pubs, bars and taverns full of locals enjoying their drinks with their mates on weekends and public holidays. In recent times, more and more drinkers have acquired a taste for boutique beers which are quite different from the mass produced ones. Some of the beers available include lagers, stouts, ales, pilsners, and wheat beers.Most of these fine establishments serve great food in relaxed alfresco settings - some have lush, green beer gardens while others have fantastic views overlooking the sea or river. And on weekends, live music is somettimes available. Kids are often catered for as many of these extablishments are set in picturesque gardens with playareas to keep the little ones occupied.LOCAL TIP: If you want to sample the very latest brew at each place, just ask for the 'Brewer's Handle'. And if you prefer not to drink and drive, join one of these Eating and Drinking Tours. Don't foget to visit WA's wine and beer shops too!
