As if the strip along West Coast Drive needed anything else to make it even nicer, Froth Craft Brewery has just opened their first metro venue – Froth Craft Beach.
After running the game in Exmouth since 2017 and opening Froth Craft Bunbrewery mid-last year, Froth Craft Beach brings their patented laidback atmosphere to Perth’s northern coastal suburbs.
Located at 1 North Beach Road underneath Tom’s Italian along West Coast Drive, its open at all comers, including kids (there’s a play area on site), all of your furry best friends (and their dogs).
Froth will be serving its own in-house beers (across 16 taps) and seltzer that are brewed down in Bunbury, along with a rotating guest tap coming soon, cider from Froth’s friends at Funk in the Swan Valley and a selection of mostly WA-based wines.
Their “froth-casting” a big summer for the light and breezy Captain Lager, along with the Half-Baked Hazy Mid Pale Ale and their popular Paint The Town Red Raspberry Berliner Weisse.
On the food-front things are equally light and breezy, with pizzas served up on wooden boards along with share plates, corn ribs, fish and chips and burgers from neighbouring 96 Express, all of which you can easily collect from their serving window while remaining in Froth’s licensed area.
From the mind of Eryk from Viking Concepts in Witchcliffe and architect Brian Borshoff (Edge 4 Design), the interiors are giving big West Aussie coastal vibes.
We’re talking recycled brick walls, shipyard rope ceilings and an up-cycled centrepiece in the bar that was a former jarrah boat built in 1948, whose prop, keel and every conceivable piece has been repurposed throughout the venue.
We get the feeling its gonna be a hit along this mostly-residential strip between Scarborough and Hillarys, and Froth co-owner Pete Firth is equally bullish.
“A metro Perth taphouse has always been a dream for our team; we never imagined we’d be able to score such a beautiful waterfront location; as ocean-lovers ourselves, we’re still pinching ourselves that we get to cheers beers with everyone as the sun sinks over that endless blue Indian Ocean horizon.”
