We Tour Perth Breweries - ISO Style
One of our very popular tours is our Perth Brewery Tour, and since we can't take you physically, we re-created the experience of being on tour with us - and this time we brought friends!
Chris Buckee from Chris Buckee Reviews Beer, and Daniel Rootman from Daniel Loves Beer are two beer enthusiasts who post regular beer tastings, thoughts and opinions on beer to their social media channels.
They joined the chat with brewers, owners and managers from some of Perth's best breweries in a huge day of beer-y fun!
If you missed it, here's where you can catch up.
Nowhereman Brewing Company
Our first stop was at the Nowhererman Brewing Company in West Leederville where we chatted to Pia (a certified Cicerone) and Luke about brewing, their beers and their philosophy.
To taste these lovely local brews keep an eye peeled for them at your local bottleshop that specialises in craft beers, pick them up from the brewery or order them (and some merch) online here.
Next we crossed the tracks to East Perth's Bright Tank Brewing Co.
Bright Tank Brewing Co.
We arrive with BBQ in full swing out the front and within minutes all the food is sold out.
Matt the owner meets us and tells us a bit of the backstory of the brewery - including how it was all due to his lovely wife, Gemma, and then takes us inside to the brewery/bar/restaurant.
Here we meet brewer Tim who chats about the brews and goes through a 'tasting' with Chris and Daniel.
You can get the Bright Tank brews from the brewery or order online here.
Next up we head to Maylands for a peek at Seasonal Brewing Company.
Seasonal Brewing Company
At Seasonal, we meet owner Nick out the front in the sunny beer garden and chat to him before heading inside to the brewery to meet brewer Brody. Brody chatted through the feature beers with Chris and Daniel.
The viewers were very excited to see Seasonal's brand new cans and loved the design!
You can taste these brews in growlers, squealers or cans from the brewery, grab them in select bottleshops, or order them onlinehere.
Next up we drive to Blasta Brewing Company in Burswood for the final stop of the tour.
Blasta Brewing Company
We meet Josh out the front of Blasta Brewing Company in Burswood under the unicorn mural - did you know that the unicorn is the national animal of Scotland?
"BLASTA", is a Scottish Gaelic-English adjective for tasty or delicious, and they stand by their philosophy to make sure each beer they produce is BLASTA.
Inside we meet Grant (former Feral) who shows us his cans, er - canning machine...and then it's onto the feature beers with brewer Hugh and the beer boys - Daniel and Chris.
You can get the beers on site or online here, and while you're at it pick up some merch, the glasses are awesome with the geometric unicorn logo.
So that's it for the ISO brewery tour. It's so strange to see these urban Perth breweries that are normally PACKED to the rafters - but these are tough times we're in.
That's why it's SO important to make sure you support your favourite local breweries by purchasing their beer, merchandise, or even grabbing some takeaway food or gift vouchers.
Don't forget we can take you on this behind the scenes brewery tour in real life once restrictions are lifted so make sure you stay in touch, sign up to our newsletter, or book a gift voucher for your beer-loving loved ones.
Itching for an adventure but stuck isolating indoors?
There’s no doubt most of us are missing our favourite Perth watering holes. A place where we can catch up with friends and family over an ice-cold beer, tipple or cider while debating the problems of the world.
Get excited because right now you can take a virtual tour of your favourite West Australian breweries, wineries, cider houses and distilleries without the need to leave your house. Here’s how.
