Breweries and Distilleries
Swan Valley breweries and distilleries offer a unique opportunity to sample a variety of award-winning local beers, ciders and spirits. There are two distilleries and six boutique beer outlets in total, including microbreweries and German style beer cafes serving their own brews with hearty, wholesome fare.
An impressive variety of beers are served at Swan Valley breweries that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Catering for connoisseurs of every kind, you’ll find lagers, pilsners, ales, wheat beers and stouts, as well as ciders and ginger beer, all handcrafted following traditional techniques and using the best local produce. Many are organic and preservative free.
Check out the list of Swan Valley breweries and while you’re visiting be sure to ask for a ‘Brewer’s Handle’ to sample the latest creations while enjoying tasty food in the picturesque beer gardens.
Two of Western Australia’s best distilleries can be found in the Swan Valley. The Great Northern Distillery is home to the award-wining Canefire Rum, which is brewed longer than any other spirit using sugar and doesn’t taste as harsh as rum made from molasses. Vodka, liqueurs, cocktails, unique syrup mixers and a small selection of fortified wines are also available for purchase.
Old Young's Distillery first opened in 2002 as the Wild Swan Distillery. Here you can sample a unique range of vodkas, including those infused with flavours such as chili or pavlova. They also produce award-winning gin.
