The south west of WA has become a hub for craft beer and cider, with an array of top shelf producers creating some amazing drops. The annual South West Craft Beer Festival shines the spotlight on these clever cats, bringing together a raft of producers exclusively from the region, sharing their brews directly with the public. It’s happening again this Saturday 3 March, so get your tickets and head on down!
One of the major players in the south west craft scene is Custard & Co cider.
The Swan Valley is the oldest wine producing region in Australia, and we all know about the great fortified wines that come out of the area, but in recent years the Valley has seen a growth in craft breweries and locally produced ciders. With 9 different quality beer and cider producers on an easy to navigate loop, the City of Swan has launched the Swan Valley Cider and Ale Trail, and we’re well on board.
Take a look at the offerings that are right on our doorstep…
From their home in the Swan Valley, the Michael brothers were inspired by their love for local produce to produce some of WA’s best cider. More and more venues around town are pouring FUNK Cider, and the boys will be popping up at this weekend’s WA Cider & Pork Festival at Elizabeth Quay. We caught up with the Michaels to find out more about their apple-y goodness.
