Welcome to my blog


My name is Tom Zaunmayr, I am 20 years old and studying.

Last year I set myself a goal to get to every brewery in Western Australia  by the time I am 21.

Through my escapades myself and my friends have surely had some impressive beer, food and memories of each place.

This blog will serve as a place for me to write about and recommend these breweries. I will also add trips to Pubs around WA, critique local, national & international beer. And maybe most importantly for me, the food!

Brewery food (most noticeably burgers)  have to be the best in the business, over my encounters I have made lists of what I believe to be the best of the best. And there certainly is some truly amazing quality on offer.
