Burgers + Beer Camp

Pourhouse + WA Beer Week

WA Beer Week offered an abundance of events to attend through Perth and the South West which, in turn, meant an abundance of excuses to head down to the nearest bar.

5 courses and 11 beers at The Sail & Anchor Hotel in Fremantle for Beer & Brewer Magazine 5th Birthday Beer Degustation – what a tough way to spend a Wednesday night!

Paul Mercurio’s Cooking with Beer book came to the rescue with a recipe for “Kick-arse Hot Beer Mustard”.
