The country's longest running beer week returns on November 11 for its 15th celebration of the state's beer scene.
And there's more to celebrate than ever before, with more breweries and more good beer supporting venues in operation for WA Beer Week 2016.
The ten day event, run by the WA Brewer's Association, kicks off with the Fremantle BeerFest running over three days from November 11 to 13, with tap takeovers, pairing events and masterclasses also taking place on the opening weekend.
Following that, there will be dinners, events based around board games and beards, explorations of hoppy beers, collaborative beers, sour beers and more every day until it all wraps up on November 20.
You can find full details and buy tickets for all ticketed events via the WA Beer Week website.
And, for the first time, The Crafty Pint is heading over – and comes bearing gifts for our WA supporters...
