Elmar’s In The Valley

Brewing their beer in accordance with the 1516 German Purity Law, Elmar’s In The Valley is home to the largest glass micro-kettle in the Southern Hemisphere. The brewery is also part of the Swan Valley region located in Henley Brook just North-East of Perth.

The West Australian brewery is located on over two acres of land making it great for larger groups. Sit indoors with their full dining area or enjoy the outdoor beer garden with large shaded areas under natural trees. No matter the season, nothing quite beats drinking a few steins of authentic German beer with family or friends.

Elmar’s In The Valley is loved by the local’s and a must-visit when taking a Swan Valley brewery tour. As with most breweries in the region, the opening hours suit visitors seeking a delicious lunch with stein, or an early dinner.

Serving German-Style Beers

With a selection of tap beers which can be ordered right in the beer garden, Elmar’s In The Valley brew delicious German beers the way they were intended. You can order their range of beers in a 1-litre stein (requiring a small deposit – refundable on return) so you can enjoy your favourite drop litre by litre.

It doesn’t get more German than that – Prost!

  • Ein Stein – Pilsner: A delicious easy-drinking beer full of “hop aroma and honey sweetness”. We’d say you should start with this beer when visiting Elmar’s In The Valley.
  • Over Draught – Alt Ale: A bit more unique, this alt ale provides a hoppy and dry finish and is completely moreish. Be sure to wet your lips with an Over Draught beers when you visit.
  • Kick Back – Wheat Beer: Banana, vanilla and aromatic hops make the Kick Back a classic choice for lovers of wheat beer.
  • Dunkel – Lager: The Dunkel Lager isn’t the common lager most mainstream beer drinkers know and love – which we see as a strong positive. Experience a true and honest German lager with a few steins of Dunkel Lager.

Elmar’s also brew a range of seasonal brews, so be sure to ask staff what’s on offer when you visit. Personal recommendations are the Ein Stein and Over Draught, however, we never visit without trying at least a glass of every available beer – for research purposes, of course.

Match these delicious beers with some authentic German cuisine and you’re set for a day to remember.
