One-stop tasting spot in Margaret River

Craft Beers? Tick. Wines? Tick. Spirits? Tick.

The home of Black Brewing in Wilyabrup, Margaret River, has a new name in Caves Road Collective and is a one-stop tasting shop.

The facility is home to Black Brewing Co, Dune Distilling and Ground to Cloud Wines and aims to quench thirst, hunger and the search for an authentic Margaret River experience.




While Black Brewing Co beer will continue to be brewed on site by the same team under the same brand name, the change of the overall site name to Caves Road Collective represents the broader appeal of the destination. 


West Australian owners Stewart Sampson, Kristin Kestell, Rob Johnston and James Paterson took over what was Duckstein Brewery in late 2015 and have steadily grown the product offering. 

“We're a passionate bunch of locals, driven to deliver uncompromising quality, and believe the new venue brand better reflects this,” said managing director Sampson. 

“Since taking over the amazing location on Caves Road we've steadily improved the venue and product offering with the intention of creating incredible memories.”

Visitors can drop in for a beer or wine tasting, a lunch by the fire or on the deck in summer, enjoy late-afternoon bar snacks, a sampling of gin from Dune Distilling, a few Black Brewing Co beers with mates in the beer garden, a game of pool, or a four-pack takeaway!




The Caves Road Collective experience now includes:

Caves Road Collective restaurant: the restaurant is headed by Chef Hayden Vink and features local seasonal ingredients. 

Black Brewing Co.: Brewers Shannon Grigg and Adam Brookes have a range that includes lager, IPA, Bao Bao Milk Stout and Fresh Ale. 

Dune Distilling: The first offering is a gin. More to follow with 
two new stills on the way from the Netherlands. 

Ground to Cloud Wines: A range of wines including chardonnay, a semillon sauvignon blanc blend, cabernet sauvignon/merlot, syrah, and rosé. They have not got their act together and their website is not operational.
