Enjoy a rich experience with history

Since the first stone was laid on this heritage site by early pioneers in 1838 this historic location has been home to both timber and flour mills, a convict depot and a tannery, before it was taken over in 1877 by Scottish sea trader, Captain John Maxwell Ferguson and his brewer partner William Mumme. These two wise entrepreneurs saw this magnificent riverside site and declared it to be the ideal spot to build the brewery that would become an icon to generations of West Australian beer lovers. Literally millions of litres of beer flowed from the Swan Brewery Company before it finally fell silent in the 1960s.

Located on the banks of the Swan River nestled below the scarp of Kings Park’s Mt Eliza, these historic walls have since been transformed to become home to The Old Brewery, Perth’s Best Steak Restaurant and one of the most awarded craft breweries in Western Australia.

Come and enjoy spectacular views as you indulge in WA’s best seasonal produce, the finest cuts of beef, lamb, pork, poultry and seafood prepared and cooked to perfection by our highly skilled chefs. Big meat lovers find it hard to resist our legendary ‘Tomahawk Steak.’ This impressive 1.4-2.7kg organic Wagyu beef rib eye steak can be shared between two or more and is hand-carved by the Chef at your table.

Our passionate Head Brewer Mark Reilly utilises only the finest grain and hops to create unique beers in small batches that are gone almost faster than he can make them.

The Old Brewery is a truly unique eatery where business people can easily escape the city for lunch with ample on-site parking. It’s a wonderful spot for couples, colleagues and friends to gather for a quiet beer, glass of wine, sophisticated bar snacks, lunch or dinner. Our secluded private dining areas are ideal for corporate dinners and social gatherings. And there are few more spectacular locations for celebrating fabulous family, corporate occasions, or the most memorable weddings.

This tranquil oasis, just minutes from the CBD, boasts spectacular 270 degree views of the Swan River, the Narrows Bridge, the City lights, South Perth foreshore and beyond. The hedged lawn rolling out from our alfresco dining area, almost to the water’s edge, is the perfect venue for couples to share their wedding vows before celebrating with a magnificent reception in our fabulous ‘Thomas Hardwick Function Room’.
