Tucked away in a leafy Leederville street – Nowhereman is a must visit for those chasing fresh flavours. We loved the Gin & Juicy craft beer – a bold, tropical brew with delicate spice and citrus notes. Apart from the main attraction (the beer), Nowhereman’s kitchen also produces some great seasonal dishes including pizza. Pizza and beer, now that’s a match made in heaven.

Perfect for a pre-game beer, the Camfield is located on the fringe of the brand new Optus Stadium in Burswood. Beware – this place is the new kid on the block and can get seriously busy before a match. In saying this, the 2000 capacity gastropub is now Australia’s largest pub offering 175 beers on tap.

Location: Henley Brook
Mash Brewery now has two locations for you to taste their beer, one in Henley Brook and one in Bunbury. These guys are known in the industry for producing unusual mixes of flavours. We recommend you try the Dark and Stormy – a perfect autumn beverage brewed using ginger, lime and a hint of oaked rum. Pairing that with some BBQ ribs straight from their kitchen, there really is no excuse not to pay them a visit.
