The Little Creatures brewery is an iconic Fremantle landmark. Even over in the Eastern states, Little Creatures is a well known drop – and in Melbourne we have been fortunate enough to have a Little Creatures dining hall (which recently closed), and brewery in Geelong. However, Fremantle is where the original brewery is located.
I had the opportunity to visit a number of places during my afternoon at Fremantle, but one place that was definitely on my list was the brewery. It is located in the Fremantle boat harbour, right on the water and also opposite the Esplanade Gardens.
The brewery is easy to locate. Just look for the combi van or bicycles out the front!
Having done so much eating that day, I decided to just drop in to sample their beers, as well as relax and catch my breath for a short while. They have two areas open to the public, one is the tasting room, and the other is more of a restaurant area. Based on my requirements I went straight into the tasting room.
They have all of their beers available there to purchase or drink on site, and some are also available on tap. A great way to sample a wide range of beers is to order a sampling platter, which is not obviously on any menu (‘hint – just ask!’). The great thing is that it is free!
After my tasting plate, I had some more time to kill and decided to order the White Rabbit White Ale, which is similar in taste to a Hoegaarden or blonde beer. Just right for a hot afternoon (the temperature was pushing 40deg).
Overall the Little Creatures brewery is still a ‘must visit’ for Fremantle. It is not just for beer aficionados, or rowdy pub style drinking – but rather a nice place by the water that is friendly for families and people looking for a good day out!
