Gage Roads is the strip of ocean that separates Rottnest Island and Fremantle in Western Australia. It’s a home to surfers and swimmers; seagulls and sharks; ships and sailors. It’s a place where you can relax, escape, explore, or seek out adventure. Gage Roads saw a lot of themselves in that little spot. That’s why they named their brewery after it. They set up shop in an old margarine factory just outside Freo over 14 years ago and they’ve been crafting beer there ever since. They make a range of ales and lagers, all of which are inspired by our place here on the WA coast.
Uncomplicated. That’s life in Margaret River. And that’s the philosophy behind the Colonial Brewing Company. One of the first breweries to open on Western Australia’s wild coastline, the Colonial Brewing Co tapped its first keg in 2004. It was the first step in an incredible journey and guided by some of Australia’s most talented and passionate brewers, they opened their first East Coast brewery in Port Melbourne in 2015. But even as they grow, they still do things the exact same way they do them in the Margaret River. They do them uncomplicated. Because life is better uncomplicated.

Being the most remote brewery in Australia is certainly a challenge at times but the Matso’s team love their spiritual home in Broome. Matso’s Broome brewery as we know it began in 2000 when Martin and Kim Peirson-Jones took over a truly micro 200l brewery that was also a café and art gallery. Now the brewery is famous for its Ginger Beer and Mango Beer along with the ice-hot Chilli Beer and a range of seven products now available in bottleshops around Australia! It’s still a family owned business and the three generations of family still live here in Broome and are often seen at Matso’s after a hard day at work.
The nature of Feral is to cast domesticity aside and embrace the wild. To tear apart and destroy terrains and forge new environments for the benefit of the herd, and the continuation of our species. It is to be uncompromising, untamed, and downright unapologetic: a way of life born from raw, natural instincts and perfected by thousands of years of evolution. And to be free to wear short shorts on a Friday.
Welcome to Feral. They like their beers like they like their metaphors: heavy.

It started with a group of mates. All hailing from the beer scene, these guys wanted to brew an awesome, hop-driven American Pale Ale with a distinctive aroma and delicious flavour. A huge shed (and former crocodile farm) on the water’s edge in Fremantle was to become the home of this beer and the birthplace of Little Creatures Brewing.

Adelaide deserves to be famous for more than churches and an iced coffee fetish. Sunshine, great food, better wine and famous festivals; it was the obvious choice for Pirate Life. Melburnians and Sydneysiders can make all the snide remarks they like; Pirate Life don’t mind having Adelaide to themselves. It’s heaps good.
4 Pines make beer because they love beer. Loving beer makes it easy to show all your mates that you love them too. Then you get lucky, and the amount of mates you have grows, and now you have a diverse community to love. Then you hug a pine tree, which gives you pine-rash, which you wear with pride. It’s all about where we are, who we’re with and how much we love our world. For 4 Pines, it’s about measuring success in the smiles on their faces, the taste of their beer and how well they can treat our planet so that the fun had today is still on offer when they’re old and grey.

Golden West Brewing
Golden West Brewing Co. is the rebirth of a quintessential Leederville brand. Over 120 years ago in 1896 J.J. Wallis established the Golden West Company which operated out of a large factory on Carr Place and sold aerated waters and other carbonated beverages. Over the course of its history Golden West changed hands several times but always remained in Leederville. Golden West was eventually bought one last time and dissolved after Coca-Cola took ownership and the original site of Golden West’s operations were demolished in the 70’s after over 75 years of crafting local products for the residents of Leederville.
