It was a bout an hour’s drive from the Perth to visit the Swan Valley’s Mash Brewery. This is a great place to drink, as every beer is preservative free. Every beer lover in Western Australia should visit this oasis. The Australian wineries are a huge tourist attraction, and the breweries are following suit. This is a great place to hang out and have a few.
Of course I started with the “Haze” Wheat Beer.

Slightly campy at the end, butdrinkable and interesting at the start. Extra points for being preservative-free pioneers in a preservative loving region. The sweetness is over the top, like dried apricots, but hey, they probably meant to do that. Top marks.
