Discover the many craft breweries of Margaret River

While Margaret River is best known for icon wineries like Vasse Felix, Leeuwin Estate, Cullen and Voyager Estate, it is also home to a wide range of craft breweries.

A handy trail guide mapping 10 local breweries has just been released.

The Margaret River Region Craft Beer Trail includes a detailed map showing breweries from Busselton to Eagle Bay, and south to Margaret River. The guide contains information on opening days and hours, dining, contact information and more.


Included in the Trail are Bootleg Brewery, Caves Road Collective (home of Black Brewing Co), Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co, Colonial Brewing Co, Cowaramup Brewing Co, Eagle Bay Brewing Co, Margaret River Brewhouse, Rocky Ridge Brewing, The Beerfarm, and Wild Hop Brewing Co.

Guide coordinator Emma Locke from Black Brewing Co said the trail included established favourites, as well as two exciting new breweries opened in the last six months.

“We've proved ourselves to be a crafty lot down south!” she said.

“There are a number of award-winning craft beers produced in the Margaret River Region and we have the highest concentration of microbreweries in Western Australia.

“Just 20 years ago there was one lone brewery in the region. They're still going strong but are now in great company,” she said.

“Each Margaret River Region brewery has its own distinct style but all share a love for hospitality and brewing some great beers in a number of styles.”


Pick up a copy of the Margaret River Region Craft Beer Trail at any of the participating breweries, or from a Visitor Centre in Busselton, Dunsborough or Margaret River.

You can also download a copy from the Trails WA website (trailswa.com.au – search for Food & Wine experiences) and app.
