A huge shed (and former crocodile farm) on the water’s edge in Fremantle was to become the home of this beer and the birthplace of Little Creatures Brewing. Work began in 1999 and we swung the doors open in late 2000.

Grab a pint & a pizza and soak in the brewery atmosphere or wander out into the backyard and enjoy your beer in the sunshine.
