Eagle Bay Brewery is one of our favourite breweries in the Margaret River region. It’s located in Eagle Bay on the Cape Naturaliste Peninsula, less than 7km from Dunsborough.
One of the many reasons we love it is that it is family owned and operated and has been in the d’Espeissis family since 1950. The farm not only has a microbrewery but a vineyard and restaurant.
Eagle Bay Brewery Information
They are open every day from 11 am to 4.30 pm.
Eagle Bay Brewing Co Beer
All their beers are made in small batches with only four ingredients; freshly harvested rainwater, malted barley, yeast, and hops.
The main selection of beers consists of a Kolsch, Amber Ale, Pale Ale, Lager, India Pale Lager, and a black IPA.
Added to these are seasonal specials like the Nut Brown Ale and the Cacao Stout (I like the sound of this one).
The Beer Tasting Tray comes with 6 beers, each of 100 ml for $16.
For those of you that don’t like beer, you can also do some wine tasting and purchase it by the glass or bottle.
The white wine list includes Semillon, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. The reds are Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and they also do a range of bubbles and a Rose.
I, personally, like the Semillon and Chardonnay.
If you like any of these wines, make sure to buy some before you leave as they are only available at the cellar door or online.
Restaurant & Menu
The restaurant is in a picturesque location overlooking the farmland and Cape Naturaliste. You have the choice of inside or outdoor seating but we like to sit outside if the weather permits.
The menu always contains a lot of local, fresh produce with plenty of options for sharing plates as well as pizzas and mains.
An up to date menu can be found on the Eagle Bay Brewing website.
Although they welcome walk in’s, I would recommend reserving a table as it is very popular and can get booked out, especially in peak season.
There’s a small playground for the children and large grassed areas for them to play.
Our Thoughts on Eagle Bay Brewing
It’s so relaxing sitting outside with a beer or wine, taking in the beautiful views over the lake. We normally just share a pizza or two for lunch but the rest of the menu looks delicious. The service is very good and friendly.
Even though I enjoy a beer, I do like the option to be able to have wine if I feel like it.
I also loved their wooden door 🙂
