Battle of the Best of Western Australia’s Regional Breweries at Margaret River Gourmet Escape

The Battle of the Breweries is one of the most popular pop up events at the Margaret River Gourmet Escape’s Gourmet Village and it’s happening again on Saturday and Sunday 17 and 18 November.

Battle of the Breweries brings together the best breweries of regional Western Australia for two days of ales, tales and cheers.

Each session features two brewers and their beers going head to head with guest punters deciding who dominates.
