The Perth Films – Freo Craft Beer

Hello there Taste Master fans, it’s Friday so that can only mean one thing……film time!

In the third of four short films all about Perth, I’m taken on a craft beer crawl of Fremantle by local brewer Brendan Varis.

Brendan is the head brewer and owner of Feral Brewing Co, one of Australia’s top craft breweries. Their award-winning beers started out life in the Swan Valley just outside Perth, and the original Brewpub still stands on the site, producing quality craft beers.

Fremantle is seen by many as the home of craft brewing in Australia and Brendan sets out to give me a taste of where it began and where it is today. From just a small handful in the 1980s, there are now over 40 breweries in Western Australia and over 200 in Australia.

Fremantle is a port city with an alternative vibe, filled with art and live music. Within walking distance there’s an array of craft beer pubs, brew pubs and breweries, serving up great beer and food to boot. I really enjoyed making this one!

Here’s how we got on…
