Wild Hop Brewing Company, Yallingup

MARGARET RIVER | Wild Hop Brewing Company is a small craft brewery in the Yalligup Hiils. It’s a family run spot with a modern, welcoming aesthetic. It’s child friendly, and dog friendly, and the fits its aim of being a space that appeals to both locals and visitors.

Brewing occurs on a 10 hectolitre kit. It’s small scale, and apart from the occasional keg that makes its way up to Perth, the only place to try Wild Hop’s beers is at the brewery. It’s all keg only, no packaged product here. All of this has created a situation where the brewery doesn’t feel the need to make a core range.

It’s all batch brew, with a constantly rotating list of beers spread across the 11 taps. The one exception to the rule is the top selling Short Shorts Czech Pilsner. They also have a tap dedicated to local cider. Beers range from hazy IPAs, to fruit infused kettle sours, and bourbon barrel aged barley wines. If you do want to take some beer away, Wild Hop do growler refills – you can bring in your own or buy one on site.

For food, it’s a bit different than what you usually find at breweries. The team at Wild Hop didn’t want to do pizzas and burgers, and compete with other venues in the area already doing the kind of food well. They have instead installed a wood-fired rotisserie, grilling a seasonally rotating menu of family style share plates using fresh, local produce.

Expect things like loaded duck-fat potatoes, Margaret River Wagu steak served with char grilled broccolini and spicy Korean cauliflower, and the signature 48 hour rotisserie chicken.

Wild Hop gets busy, so if you’re planning to visit with a group, make sure to book ahead to secure a table.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
