Western Australian Beer Week 2009 : Event Listing

Tomorrow see's the launch of Western Australian Beer Week for 2009, a week long celebration(Saturday 6th to Friday 12th June) of all things beer in WA. The event is organised by members of the Western Australian Brewers Association (, with the simple aim of honouring the beer, food, and people of the craft breweries of Western Australia.
The celebration of brewing coincides with the 2009 Cryer Malt Perth Royal Beer Show. Where a team of expert judges come together to grade a vast number of beers from both commercial and amateur brewers. All battling it out for seventeen different class trophies and three overall champion trophies. Free consumer tastings are being hosted by WABA from Monday to Wednesday at the Adelphi Steak House from 5.30 - 7, where the focus is on matching up three different local beers with a variety of gourmet delights. Some new brews have been inspired with Bootleg Brewery will releasing two new beers a Double West Indian Pale Ale @ 5.7% called Epic Ale and a Barleywine at 9.7 % called The Grandfather Part 2. Indian Ocean Brewing Co. have got two brand new beers hitting the taps – the Indi Vanilla Milk Stout and The Indi Kriek. Both beers will be pouring as of the 6th June to coincide with WA Beer Week.

We've been busy in the kitchen recently working on a few ideas and recipes using beer as a major component, and will be posting the results throughout WA Beer Week, so please do come back through the week to get some tasty beery recipes.
