Hopefully you have recovered from WA Beer Week because you will need your palate to be nice and refreshed for this weekends Fremantle Beer Festival.
The Fremantle Esplanade Reserve will be transformed into a beer lovers paradise on November 15 & 16 and feature your local favourite brewers like Gage Roads, Feral Brewing, Eagle Bay Brewing, Mash Brewing and Nail Brewing just to name a few. New brew kids on the block Homestead Brewery and Northbridge Brewing Co will also be there so if you haven’t had a chance to check them out yet this might be a great opportunity to get to know them.

Not only is the festival a great opportunity to try lots of WA beer and meet the brewers but there are Master Classes running all weekend long. Classes will cover topics from beer and food matching, home brewing advice and cooking with beer and hosted by some of the best people in the industry including Matt Marinich from Print Hall/Bob’s Bar, Gerrard Mitchell from Beersine and so many WA brewers that if I listed them it would look more like a phone directory than a list of presenters.

Last year I teamed up with Margi from Eagle Bay Brewing to present a Beer and Cheese Masterclass which attracted around 60 people. Margi and I were thrilled to share our love of beer and cheese with so many people and we’re lucky enough to have been asked to do it again this year!
Accurately, and maybe even a bit of an understatement, the class is called We Love Beer and Cheese where Margi and I will be talking beer and cheese across four delicious pairings. You’ll be able to find us in the Cryer Malt tent at 3pm on Saturday.
Just like last year it is free to join the Master Classes, all you need is your bum on a seat and we will treat you to some fresh local Eagle Bay beers matched to some tasty cheese.
As diligent researchers, Margi and I have been putting in the hard work to come up with some pairings we hope you will like.
We look forward to seeing you at the Fremantle Beer Festival! Get your tickets here.
