Feral-ly Delicious - The Best Breweries in WA

feral brewery-t

In one Australian company I worked for, the Managing Director wanted to buy the perfect gift for a past visitor and had a great idea - we would buy them a six-pack of Swan lager, which the visitor had raved over during his stay here. The only issue was that that visitor was German, and now safely at home with his bratwurst and weißbier, so getting a six-pack to them was going to cost a lot in couriering.

Not only that, but our company was based in Sydney and we couldn't find a drop of Swan in the city. Due to various licensing laws you can't just post alcohol from WA to New South Wales. We had to bribe a member of staff who was in Perth - on holidays - to take a cab from Perth airport and buy some, and bring it in their clicking hand-luggage on the plane.

There’s Nothing Fishy about the Kailis Bros

The name Kailis has long been associated with the seafood industry in Perth so where better to head when you are craving all things fishy?

George Palasis Kailis started selling fish in the 1920s when the old markets were alive and kicking in Wellington Street, Perth. Although the markets are long gone, the Kailis family continues to sell both fresh fish and seafood in Fremantle and Leederville.

My two friends and I decided to let someone else do the cooking for a change so headed to the Kailis Bros. Fish Café on Oxford Street in the heart of Leederville, only a few kilometres from central Perth.

Baa Baa Black Sheep

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT BAA BAA BLACK SHEEP HAS CLOSED. IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE VOLCANIC STONE GRILL AND CAFE.




I arrived at Baa Baa Black Sheep at around 7.30am for an early morning (well, early for me!) breakfast catch up with my friend. The name of this café always brings a grin to my face. I seated myself on one of the sofa chairs soaking up the ambiance of the place as I read leisurely through the newspapers. The morning sun cast a nice warm feel through the café as light jazz music played in the background.

Stuzzico

Since 2005 when Stuzzico made its entrance to the Perth market, i have noticed the growing popularity of Stuzzico's gourmet pizza by the slice.

The queues at lunchtime in the Perth CBD are not uncommon as Stuzzico makes a quick and easy lunchtime alternative for those on the go and who want to grab something quick for lunch. Some of the branches also have a small area for alfresco dining which makes a good spot for some quick and tasty pizza with friends alfresco on the sidewalk in the city. Note: some of the city branches are open only during weekdays and not on weekends.
