Welcoming New Members
Black Brewing Co. is the distilling arm of Sampson & Bowen and is located in what was the former Duckstein Brewery at Saracen Estate. Purpose-built, the venue houses a cellar door, restaurant and craft brewery along Caves Road in Wilyabrup. It is a great ‘next ale trail stop’ that enjoys estate water views and even has a kids playground.
Black Brewing Co.’s production capability is 160,000 litres of beer per year in the German built brewery, a significant step up from its humble suburban beginnings in Stewart Sampson’s back shed.
Robert Bowen, an international awarded local wine maker and Stewart Sampson will produce a range of beer in collaboration with brewers around the country. Lovers of great wine, they equally love drinking beer and spirits, so the goal is to produce beers that reflect their interpretation of the south west palette. Boutique craft beer labels are available on tap and Robert Bowen and Pemberley wines are at cellar door. The restaurant deck is perfect for afternoon sun and a cleansing taster ale along the Caves Rd trail.
