Brew­ers raise glass to new trail


The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS - Lisa Thomas

SWAN Val­ley cider and beer brew­eries are be­ing cel­e­brated in the launch of a new tourism cam­paign to high­light what the re­gion has to of­fer.

The City of Swan launched the Swan Val­ley Cider and Ale Trail last week at Oakover Es­tate.

The trail fea­tures an im­pres­sive line-up of lo­cal es­tab­lish­ments, in­clud­ing El­mar’s in the Val­ley, Duck­stein Brew­ery, Funk Cider, Oakover Es­tate, Mash Brew­ery, Iron­bark Brew­ery, Feral Brewing Com­pany, Figtree Es­tate and Home­stead Brew­ery.

City of Swan Mayor Mick Wain­wright said the new trail would bring yet an­other ex­cit­ing tourism ex­pe­ri­ence to the re­gion.

“While the Swan Val­ley is char­ac­terised by many third and fourth gen­er­a­tion fam­ily-owned winer­ies, there’s also a grow­ing num­ber of tal­ented brew­ers in the re­gion,” he said.

“This just adds to the al­ready bur­geon­ing mix of winer­ies, fresh pro­duce and eater­ies and helps to make the Swan Val­ley an event more de­sir­able lo­ca­tion for lo­cal, in­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors.”

Swan Val­ley/Gidge­gan­nup coun­cil­lor Dar­ryl Trease said the Cider and Ale Trail was an ex­am­ple of col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween lo­cal busi­nesses and the City.

“Whether you’re af­ter a pint of crafted ale, a spe­cialty cider or an au­then­tic brew­ers ex­pe­ri­ence, the Cider and Ale Trail has it all,” he said.

To cel­e­brate the launch of the Cider and Ale Trail, the City of Swan is giv­ing one per­son the chance to win a year’s worth of Swan Val­ley cider and beer. Visit swan­val­l­ey­cideran­
