German Brewery in Perth

Enjoy Beer at Authentic German Brewery located in the Swan Valley

All of Elmar’s beers are created right here at our Swan Valley brewery, only 40 minutes from Perth’s CBD. We are home to the largest glass micro-brewery in the southern hemisphere, with a glass kettle and copper lauter vessel, all of which can be seen through a glass viewing platform from the bar area. The brewery is run by a state of the art computer system that has been imported from Germany, which plays a big role in ensuring that the authenticity and high quality of the beer is maintained.

All of Elmar’s beer is brewed onsite to the exact standards of the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, which states that the only ingredients used for the brewing of beer must be malt, hops, water and yeast. Using only the freshest malts and hops, all imported direct from Germany, the beers on tap at Elmar’s include no artificial colours or flavours, and are totally free from preservatives or chemicals.

Many of the big commercial breweries filter their beer, and through quick heating and pasteurisation techniques, can extend its use-by date. By doing this, most of the valuable protein, Vitamin B complex and yeast are killed, leaving the beer in a preservative state. At Elmar’s, our beers are all naturally conditioned, with the Ein Stein Pilsner conditioning in the tanks for up to nine weeks before it is served to the customer. Besides the Ein Stein Pilsner, Elmar’s also offers Kick Back Wheat, Over Draft Alt Ale and Schwarz Bier all year round. In addition, a variety of seasonal beers are regularly brewed, including Märzen, a traditional German Oktoberfest beer, which we brew during March and condition until October.

All of Elmar’s beers are served directly to the customer from vats in the specially designed and temperature controlled brew house that is located directly behind the bar. Guests can enjoy our beer in small 100ml tasters all the way up to impressive German 1 litre steins.

Our brewery, located in the heart of the Swan Valley, Perth, is the perfect opportunity for visitors to experience something a little different. Regular beer talks that explore the beer making process and the history of German beer can be enjoyed while tasting the fine beers and delectable smallgoods we have on offer. Guided brewery tours can be booked on request with our Head Brewer.

With the picturesque Swan Valley situated only a short drive from the Perth CBD, Elmar’s is easily accessible, and regularly plays host to a variety of functions and events. Among our more popular spaces is the indoor raised bar area with glass windows that provides a good view of our brewery and overlooks the restaurant, making it perfect for stand-up dining functions, drinks and brewery talks. With a capacity of 50 guests, it is a unique venue that is sure to impress.
