This Margaret River brewery lives up to its name — with paddocks of grass and grain, and a roving herd of Black Angus cattle.
If you're going to brew beer anywhere in Western Australia, the Margaret River region is a mighty fine pick. Beerfarm does just that — and, as we're guessing you've already gleaned, it does so on an actual farm. As well as paddocks of grass and grain, its Metricup site also boasts a roving herd of Black Angus cattle.
Unsurprisingly, sustainability, being socially and environmentally conscious, and making top brews from natural ingredients are all on the agenda here. Well, that and finding the balance between solid regular brews and experimental new additions. A highlight: the sweet and sour tastes of Beerfarm's Asam Boi Gose, made in collaboration with Smith Street Taps in Singapore. Now that's something you don't get to drink every day.
A bonus for those in WA: you can stop by the farm for a drink and a bite to eat — including a steak — seven days a week.
