Beer Fes­ti­val re­turns to Fre­man­tle.

BEER lovers get those taste buds ready – the Fre­man­tle Beer Fes­ti­val is on again.

The three-day fes­ti­val at Es­planade Park will fea­ture prod­ucts from 50 WA brew­eries.

Lit­tle Crea­tures brewer Daniel Heary said they had been in­volved in the fes­ti­val since day one.

“It is fun and a great chance to try dif­fer­ent beers,” he said.

“The fes­ti­val has changed with more brew­eries open­ing up; ev­ery­one has got new dif­fer­ent beers and spe­cial re­leases.”

Gage Roads brewer Ross Brown said WA had re­ally led the craft brew­ing scene.

“This is where craft brew­ing re­ally kicked off,” he said.

“It will be a great show­case of WA brew­eries.

“The craft beer trend fits in with a lot of the food cul­ture.

“We are get­ting new styles de­vel­op­ing and brew­eries are ex­per­i­ment­ing with new flavours.”

Mr Heary said Lit­tle Crea­tures would of­fer a range of beers at the fes­ti­val.

“Beers on the stand will in­clude the birth­day beer as it’s Crea­tures’ birth­day month in Novem­ber,” he said.

Mr Brown said Gage Roads would of­fer some­thing sim­i­lar, in­clud­ing a spe­cial beer brewed for the event.

The fes­ti­val will also in­clude a per­for­mance from Grin­spoon’s Phil Jamieson.
