In the few short years since the Black Brewing Company opened, it has quickly become a much-go-to restaurant and brewery. The two owners and operators, Stewart Sampson and Scott Douglas, were friends for a long time before venturing into business together. Their talents, creativity, and passion for craft beers are so in sync with each other that it was practically preordained that their business would be a great success.

While the management and staff are young in age, their outstanding beer products and their enthusiasm for sharing their award winning level of ales and lagers with the public have proven extremely pleasing to the palates of all age groups. Every one of their personalized, handcrafted ales and lagers are entirely brewed, bottled or kegged in their Margaret River brewery. But, the offerings are not isolated to beers alone. The owners also take great pride in their Vintner Black label of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines made on-site from their own Margaret River vineyard grapes.

Black Brewing Company beers are available for tasting and drinking on location and for takeaway sales. They specialize in Session style brews and their labels include: Rice Raaager, Pale Ale, XPA, Fresh Ale, Sasion, and Bao Bao Session Stout. Their specialty beers and wines may be the main reason that people initially plan to visit their location, but there is so much more to the Black Brewing Company that has so many visitors returning time after time.

This is a family friendly business that has a play area for the children, facility access for the disabled, a gallery with a cozy fireplace, cellar door sales, and brewery tours that comes with behind the scene experiences in the life of a brewmeister. The full service restaurant has an amazing waterfront view that can be enjoyed by diners both inside the building or relaxing on the outdoor patio. The restaurant features a shared plate menu that encourages couples and small groups to savor, and share, several dishes at one seating. There is a complete selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The restaurant is open daily from 11 AM to 5 PM. Friday evenings are Black Friday for the brewing company with their 5-star dinner specials, open bar, and live musical entertainers. Black Friday begins after the conclusion of the normal operating hours and reservations are required.

There is a vibrancy of pleasure that emanates throughout the entire facility from the polite, energetic wait staff and bartenders to the friendly, knowledgeable cellar door personnel. Come for a beer, come for the food, come for a paddle sampling, or come to sit and sip a glass of your favorite craft beer while enjoying the company of others in a relaxed, comfortable, and scenic atmosphere. Stay for a while or stay for the day. Your pleasure, your comfort, and your satisfaction are all a number one priority at the brewery. If traveling to the brewery does not fit into your touring plans, you can find Black Brewing Company beers in local beer shops and other businesses.
