Well with 8 months to go until I’m 21. There is still a lot to do!

15 breweries to knock off – Billabong, Blackwood Valley, Matsos, Old Coast Road, Tanglehead, Wild Bull, Jarrah Jacks, Brew42, Blacksalt, Moody Cow, Northbridge (if its finished!), Last Drop Bedfordale, Mash Bunbury, Mash Rockingham & Cheeky Monkey.

Gonna be a busy a summer break! But heres the progress to date.

Bootleg Brewery in Margaret river is still the most authentic Aussie brewery, and therefore the best – been there 3 times now.Also still the best Burger by far, thanks to that incredible BBQ sauce.

Eagle Bay & Colonial breweries also MR region have the best beer – their Kolsch are just incredible. These two also have incredible views and a nice sophistication.

Little Creatures is nice, albiet a little overrated – 5 times we’ve visited the famous Freo brewery now. The Golden Ale is my favourite. A brilliant atmosphere, it really encompasses¬† the Fremantle spirit well.

Some of the lesser known breweries such as Last Drop, Ironbark & Mad Monk were very impressive, holding up well to the big names.

Feral brewery is easily the manliest place one can venture, not too far away either!

Elmars, Duckstein & Mash in the valley provide for an excellent day out, top notch beer and food at all three.

Occys is terrible, Principle you don’t really feel that its a brewery and Cowaramup is a little dull (although we were all dead when we were there).

Next stop is Blacksalt, then down south again over summer to knock off the Perth to Busselton stretch! Hopefully the far south breweries will be conquered by the end of summer holidays too, leaving only the few Northerly breweries to go.
