adventures in craft beer in Perth and beyond

girl + cow

Moody Cow Brewery operates under the loving care of Grant and Karen McClintock and is just one of two breweries operating in the Ferguson Valley. Grant brews the beers and they have won him a few awards including a Silver Medal at the 2011 Perth Royal Beer Show for his Gruntas Original Ale.

Beer + Beach

Considering it is almost the weekend and the weather appears to have turned sort of wintery on us, here is something light, fluffy and warming for a Friday.

Pizza + Little Creatures

I love discovering my next favourite place where the staff are smiling, the food is delicious and the drinks are good. Bianco Gourmet Pizza Cafe in Bunbury ticks all these boxes and whilst the drinks aren’t alcoholic they do have a BYO policy and, wait for it, there’s no charge! The Rose Hotel bottleshop is conveniently just up the road so put these two places together and it means I’ve found enablers for my regular pizza and beer cravings.

Beers + Enthusiasm

In recent weeks I have been sent up to Perth for work, staying at The Crown and with the office at Kewdale it means constantly driving past Cellarbrations Carlisle. How can a girl resist?

Nail + Clancy’s

What’s not to love about the Clancy’s Fish Pubs? Casual pubs with good food and they’ve always been a haven for craft beer lovers, in fact their Fremantle venue was Little Creatures first customer. It has to be said however that Clancy’s City Beach has the bragging rights to the best views with the gorgeous City Beach practically under the seats.

Temple + Barra

Temple Brewing is one of those breweries who stop me in my tracks at the bottleshop and create child-like excitement in me if I spot something new. Finding the Saison De Miel generated such excitement – a special edition of their Saison made with honey, hence “de miel”, and therefore had some very big boots to live up to.

girl + festival [part 3]

With the madness of Saturday now behind us it was time to see what the Sunday edition of the South West Craft Beer Festival would bring and with that thought in my head I awoke to the sound of rain. I looked out the window to see that Saturday’s bright sunshine and blue skies had been replaced with cloud.
