Breweries in the Swan Valley

The Swan Valley is becoming known not just for its wine and fine food but also its beer. With more than 20 local brews, there’s something to suit all palates.

      Description

      Beer brewing (and drinking) can be an exciting process. Beers vary according to the season and the whim of the brewer and small batches and a swift turnaround mean the Swan Valley’s four microbreweries are always on the go, making an array of beers in a wide range of styles.
      Henley Brook’s Duckstein Brewery, located on West Swan Road less than 8km north of Reid Highway, offers a little piece of Germany in the heart of the Swan Valley. All beer is brewed on the premises in accordance with the German Purity Law using only natural ingredients. With no added sugars or chemicals, visitors can enjoy a clean and untouched selection of light and dark German-style beers from an ever-changing menu.
      However, it’s not all about beer. The Bavarian-style restaurant offers an extensive German menu. Visitors can enjoy the traditional food, tankard of beer, or coffee and cake either in the beer garden or while watching the brewing process. Duckstein is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11am to 9pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11am to 11pm and Sundays 11am to 7pm. For bookings (especially recommended on weekends) phone (08) 9296 0620.
      Famous for his German smallgoods shop in Highgate, Elmar is now also becoming famous for his microbrewery in Henley Brook. Elmar’s in the Valley, on West Swan Road, slightly south of Duckstein, houses the only glass brewery in the southern hemisphere and specialises in pilsner, Dusseldorfer alt style beer, wheat beer with a kick and a crisp mid-strength beer. Elmar's beer is made under the Bavarian Purity Law using only the freshest ingredients imported directly from Germany. Best of all, because it’s unfiltered it retains the whole vitamin B group so, technically at least, it shouldn’t result in a hangover!
      With lots of wood and stainless steel and a brewery viewing area, Elmar's has a relaxed pub feel. A two-acre parkland beer garden with lots of trees, benches and tables makes it ideal for families. The restaurant caters for all tastes, featuring traditional German foods as well as a range of other dishes. Elmar’s is open Wednesdays from 10am to 5pm and Thursdays to Sundays 10am to 10pm. Phone (08) 9296 6354.
      Feral Brewing Company at 152 Haddrill Road, Baskerville, specialises in organic pilsner, Belgian white, pale ale, German red and other specialty beers. Of the five permanent beers, the most popular is the feral white, a sweet Belgian-style wheat beer, spiced with orange peel and coriander. And to keep things interesting, there’s always a seasonal beer on offer, ranging from strawberry porter beer to farmhouse ale and, new to the menu this year, sour kiwifruit beer and seaweed beer.

      The restaurant, catering for full meals as well as snacks, serves modern Australian cuisine with a beer recommendation for each dish. Visitors can relax inside or out on the verandah and, with a large grass area and children’s playground in full view, it’s ideal for families. Feral is open Mondays to Wednesdays from 11am to 5pm and Thursdays to Sundays 11am to 11pm. Bookings are essential on weekends. Phone (08) 9296 4657.
      Ironbark Brewery, less than 3km from Guildford at 55 Benara Road, Caversham, offers hand-crafted specialty beers such as wheat beer, Munich ale, Indian pale ale and Vienna lager and stout. Hannan’s lager is a strong beer that always attracts attention; cherry ale is extremely popular with the ladies; and the brewery is also becoming famous for its Tinny Thomas ginger beer.
      Ironbark Brewery offers a rustic, natural feel and the small beer garden is a popular place to spend a relaxing afternoon, with regular live music adding to the atmosphere. The restaurant offers lunch and dinner, as well as snack meals. Special Aussie fare is on offer one day each month. Ironbark is open Friday to Sunday from 10.30am to 10pm. Phone (08) 9377 4400.
