He retired so that he could focus on his passion for brewing and to keep up with the punters growing demand! They will be showcasing a stellar line up of great Belgian-inspired ales to quench any craft beer lover’s thirst… and they will have plenty of it!

Colonial Brewing Co.

Uncomplicated. That’s life in Margaret River. And that’s the philosophy behind the Colonial Brewing Company. One of the first breweries to open on Western Australia’s wild coastline, the Colonial Brewing Co tapped its first keg in 2004.

The CBCo team will be back in 2021 with their uncomplicated approach to brewing….and life.  They’ll be pouring their core range of award winning beers. Be sure to try it all from their famous South West Sour, which started as a limited release seasonal but due to demand, is now firmly part of the core range, to their wonderful Australian IPA and everything in between.

Cowaramup Brewing Co.

2018’s crowned winners Cowaramup Brewing Co. can’t wait to start pouring their golden nectar at the 2021 festival. So much so that they found it challenging to choose which of their mouth-watering brews to showcase … and we don’t blame them!

Craft beer heaven open their doors when Jeremy said he was going to bring the whole range! Their beers certainly do the talking once in the glass in front of you. Be sure to try the 2018 South West Brew Of the Year, the Hefeweizen.

Calling all lovers of juicy, 100% natural, South West ciders … them damn tasty, lip licking good ciders from Custard & Co. will be back at the 2021 South West Craft Beer Festival.

Set in the middle of the apple growing country side, Custard & Co are what you call a little different. They use whole local fruit to make their apple ciders and have unique combos that will blow our mind away! Plus, no nasty little gluten characters swimming around in these bevvies, these are all gluten free.

Eagle Bay Brewing Co.

Full Circle Brewery

After making their first visit to the festival in 2020, Mark and the team at Full Circle have gone full bore into growing a great brewery in Bridgetown!

Their beers are brewed on our farm from rain water. Sustainability is a big part of what they do and is reflected in the name, waste water is treated and used to irrigate the hop garden, while the mash is fed to livestock.

These guys will be offering a large range of beers at the festival including, a new world XPA and hazy NEIPA and Red Rye Ale.

Margaret River Brewhouse

The legends at Margaret River Brewhouse are back and keen to showcase their incredible core and seasonal range of ales, lagers, stouts, seasonals and more!

Their brewing philosophy is quite simple – they make beers how they were meant to be made! Using only 4 ingredients; hops, malt, water and yeast, they brew beers that are true to style. But that’s no substitute for flavour… your taste buds are in for a real treat!

Rocky Ridge Brewing Co.

We’re stoked to announce that Rocky Ridge Brewing Co. will be returning to the festival’s wagon in 2021, and better yet, releasing their highly anticipated new version of Rock Juice on the day along with our festival beer!

Everything they put in their beer; be it Malt, Hops, Yeast or Water has been hand grown, harvested, dried, kilned, malted, filtered and finally brewed on their Busselton farm by their family.

Head Brewer Hamish is bringing an epic range of awesome brews to try and a key eye for creativity. His sensational beer combos are the talk of the town and we can’t wait to try them all!

Runamuk Cider Co.

We can’t wait to welcome back this stellar line-up of ciders all the way from Stratham.

All it took was for one apple to fall to far from the tree who wanted to make his own mark, free of concentrates and added sugars, free of fake colourings and chemicals. His goal was to harvest a revolution with cider drinkers to show that there is more to cider than the sweet sugary concentrates that line the bottle shop shelves. And are we glad he did – these ciders are the perfect mix of sweet and tangy, fruity and refreshing, all at once!

Shelter Brewing Co

We have been waiting a while for this moment but now it is finally here, Shelter will be launching their SWCBF career at the 2021 event!

After making the long and and arduous trek across the foreshore, the team will be bringing their core range of beers which have already gotten locals and visitors tongues wagging in only a few months!

Welcome neighbours!

Thorny Devil Craft Beer & Cider

We knew craft beer heaven had opened its gates when Peter from Thorny Devil in Mandurah told us they were going to be a part of the 2021 South West Craft Beer Festival. A huge welcome back to the South West Craft Beer Festival ship!

They have a thirst-quenching range of brews to choose from –  lagers, wheat wonders, dark ales, pomegranate ciders, plus their awesome fruity NEIPAs! So there’s sure to be a brew to suit any connoisseur.. bottoms up

Wilson Brewing

After debuting at the 2019 festival, Wilson had to have a year off in 2020 to get over all the beer that they poured at the 2019 event! We are joking because the team down in Albany have been producing so much beer that you can find in all major bottle shops all over the state!

We cant wait to have the guys land back in Geographe Bay pouring their range of ales, from the Lost Sailor through to the Light House.

Skigh Wines

Well… maybe not quite a brewer, but just as good! Skigh will make sure all those vino loving lads and ladies who still want to be part of a super fun festival don’t miss out!

A group of mates, brought together by the dream of building our own small offering of real wines – wines that at their core represent what they love to drink – wines that tend to be lower in alcohol, have naturally balanced acid, have a great structure and double down on drinkability.

We can’t wait to try a drop on the day!
