Breweries, Cideries & Distilleries

Craft beer heaven

The first brewery established in the region coined a phrase, ‘An oasis of beer in a desert of wine’.

Nearly 20 years ago that brewery was a lone trailblazer and now with nine breweries in Your Margaret River Region, craft beer is a real player in the down south scene.

Each brewery has its own distinctive style from traditional pale ales and pilsners to preservative and additive free brews. By contrast chocolate beers, ginger and chilli beer will give your tastebuds something new to think about. Brave inventive styles are introduced regularly and frequent the daily tasting list. Some also produce their own cider, there’s even a distillery.

Cold beer, a sunny afternoon, live music and great food couldn’t define the quintessential chilled out down south experience better. Relax, sit back and let someone else do the driving on a Margaret River brewery tour or check out the Margaret River breweries list and create your own craft beer appreciation tour!

Your Margaret River Region has the highest concentration of micro-breweries in Western Australia.
