Your Freo pub crawl itinerary!
Fremantle… known for its good vibes, arty feel and ocean breeze – but what else can it offer you this silly season? Aside from its many tourist sights, Freo also boasts some of WA’s best bars, pubs and microbreweries. Whether you’re a craft beer fanatic, on the hunt for a refreshing cocktail or a crowd-pleasing venue to suit the whole crew, there’s a place for you.
So, where do you begin? At Barons, we’ve been working for some of Fremantle’s best venues for over four generations. We want West-Aussies to discover the awesome spots sitting right on their doorstep, so we’ve put together a Freo pub crawl itinerary just for you!
Enjoy a craft brew at Little Creatures
Starting off with a classic – Little Creatures. This iconic spot is loved for its lively Great Hall dining room, funky interior and stunning views of the Fremantle Harbour.
Besides its delicious menu and impressive scenery, Little Creatures is also a craft beer nerd’s little slice of heaven. All beer and cider sold at Little Creatures are brewed on-site. Their range is nothing short of beautiful, with the iconic Rogers Amber Ale, Little Creatures Pacific Ale and refreshing Pipsqueak Cider just scraping the surface. Take some time to check out the venue’s massive open brewhouse, soak in that delicious beer aroma and if you’re really feelin’ it, you could even participate in a brewery tour!
Like many of the brewery systems designed by Barons, Little Creatures’ dispense system is designed for ultimate beer freshness and exceptional enjoyment. Brews flow directly from their serving tanks and are pumped straight into your glass… it doesn’t get much fresher than that!
Sip on a classic cocktail at Republic of Fremantle
You’ve had your fill of craft beer deliciousness, now it’s time to get classy!
Your second stop is Republic of Fremantle – a sleek, sophisticated cocktail bar located in the Port City’s historical West End. Fremantle’s first-ever urban distillery, this venue serves up its own local gin and vodka selections, along with a host of other crisp beverages. From the delicious ‘Negroni Classico’ and ‘Fish House Punch’ through to their refreshing ‘Tiny Dancer’, this venue’s cocktails are designed to ensure that great spirits are at the forefront of every sip. Swing by and enjoy an innovative mix in the afternoon sun, or sit inside and wonder at the distillery’s state-of-the-art Müller copper pot still.
Still fancy a beer? They’ve got that covered too. Republic of Fremantle boasts a six-tap draught beer system designed and installed by none other than the best (Barons, of course). They even contracted us to develop a solution for their still and sparkling water, so you can rest assured that their water is tip-top, too!
Soak in the atmosphere at Freo Social
Looking for somewhere the whole crew will love? Your final stop is Freo Social.
The perfect spot to wrap up a long day of pub-crawlin’, Freo Social is a funky venue offering delicious bar bites, a relaxed atmosphere and a drink to quench any thirst. With four bars inside and out, a huge entertainment hall and a 500-litre Brewshed, Freo Social is the ultimate crowd-pleaser. Featuring a total of 56 independent beer taps, this venue serves up crisp and fresh beverages from WA’s Otherside Brewery and offers a curated selection of wines and cocktails – there really is something for everyone!
If your crew is looking to be entertained, Freo Social has that down pat too. A hub for live and local talent, this venue is known for regularly hosting some of the state’s best music acts. What better way to finish up your crawl through Freo than listening to some live music with your favourite brew in hand?
The best part about this venue? Well, we don’t mean to boast but their dispense system is pretty great. We designed and installed Freo Social’s entire system to ensure that their brews are consistently poured to perfection but don’t just take our word for it – go and try for yourself!
