I was drawn to this place after tasting there draught/bottled Hop Hog IPA and i was not disappointed. The food and service at this little gem is only trumped by there fresh range of regular and seasonal beers. The beers is served in appropriate glasses to suit the style for maximum aroma, flavour and enjoyment. My only hope is that this place bottles more of their beer (at the moment its only the HopHog, Golden ace and White) and they open more restaurants/brewpubs around Perth + beyond. It would also be nice if they had growlers so you could take some of the stuff they dont bottle (I’d be there every weekend if that was the case).
A rustic looking joint. Something of a cross between CA and Queensland. Plantation style house. Way out of the way for Perth.
Service . very solid. Knew the beers and willing to talk Also liked that the staff had favorites and willing to say what they were. Expensive beers but takeaway was reasonable.
I guess what dawned on me was all the beers are available in Sydney so there was pretty much no exploration of the beers possible. Had 3 barrel aged beers but all I have access to. So left me sort of disappointed as no newness to try to tick.
If you like the rustic looking feel you will love it. Looked more like a bad cross of a farm bear republic. Chickens running around the parking lot was interesting.

Love this joint. just wish there was a bus that went near it!. Great selection of beer, all of which is exceptional. Food has been great whenever I have been there too. Good area for the kids, but a modern playground would be a welcome addition.
Great brewpub. Very northern Cali/Sonoma vibe. We loved the outdoor area. I was most impressed by their wide selection and the quality of the non-core range beers they had on tap. This is what a brewpub is all about!!! Other breweries, please take note. No beer geek is gonna travel well out their way to drink the same old range they can pick up at their local bottle-o. It defeats the purpose.
They had no less than 8 additional beers that they don’t bottle that you can get virtually only get there (or at a tap takeover). Barrel aged beers, different Belgian styles, other IPAs. All brilliant.
My only gripe is that they didn’t have a single sour on tap.
The food was pricy, but super tasty and big portions.
We will be back.
Really enjoyed my time at Feral. Great place with great atmosphere inside or out. Beer selection is fantastic. Always seem to have a bunch of specials or seasonals on tap. Only about 2 or 3 beers on their menu weren’t tapped but I was told which pubs had those on tap if I wanted to head down to one of them (namely Sail & Anchor). Was happy they could make up a tasting tray of my choice as well. World class beers just need to improve on the selection as they run out of their seasonals a little too often....
The last few times I have been here, there has been no problems when it comes to their beer selection. Either all or almost all of their beers pouring on tap. Great to go down and have the choice of everything they do at the one time! Service can be a little hit and miss but this probably because they are getting pumped consistently
Was a little disappointed when they first opened, but now, brilliant!
Beer range is excellent. Food is classy, although not cheap. Location is nice. All over a good place to try some above average brews.
