A small brew pub nestled away in a karri forrest/ vineyard just outside of Pemberton. One of the most scenic setting for a brewery i have every layed eyes on, and believe be i have seen a few. The bar staff mentioned that that have only just reopened the brewery after a couple of years closed. While i could see all of the breweries equipment being setup the bar staff also mentioned all their beers aren’t yet being brewed onsite, but instead in Perth by John Stallwood (Nail Brewing).

This 12 month old brewpub restaurant is some 10 km out of the small timbertown of Pemberton. The spectacular setting is absolutely unique, deep in the heart of tall timber and vinyard country of the Southwest tip of Western Australia.
The bar and restaurant overlook a vinyard valley surrounded by massive Karri trees. The vegetation around the brewery has to be kept sparse for bushfire reasons but once the gardens and trees around the brewery reach a decent size it should be even more pleasant than it is now.
The beer selection is limited to what the brewery offers but there are plenty of superb wines made on site as well. The beers are well crafted and cover a decent range of styles. The food is very high quality although on the day we went the service was slow probably because the placed was packed. Given they have only been operating for 12 months this is a solid effort and gives the world class local wineries a good run for their money.
The main downside is the daytime only opening hours - other than that - highly recommended!
