Informative Eagle Bay Brewery Review & Photos 2023

Eagle Bay Brewery is one of the best breweries in Margaret River. It’s located in Eagle Bay on the Cape Naturaliste Peninsula, less than 7km from Dunsborough in Australia’s South West.

We enjoy going there as it is family owned and operated and has been in the d’Espeissis family since 1950. The farm not only has a microbrewery but a vineyard and restaurant.

The main selection of beers consists of a Kolsch, Amber Ale, Pale Ale, Lager, India Pale Lager, and a black IPA.

Added to these are seasonal specials like the Nut Brown Ale and the Cacao Stout (I like the sound of this one).

The Beer Tasting Tray comes with 6 beers, each of 100 ml for A$16.

Eagle Bay Vineyard

For those of you that don’t like beer, you can also do wine tasting and purchase it by the glass or bottle.

Eagle Bay Brewery Wine Tasting area

The white wine list includes Semillon, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. The reds are Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and they also do a range of bubbles and a Rose.

I, personally, like the Semillon and Chardonnay.

If you like any of these wines, make sure to buy some before you leave as they are only available at the cellar door or online.

Eagle Bay Brewery Restaurant & Menu

The restaurant is in a picturesque location overlooking the farmland and Cape Naturaliste. You have the choice of inside or outdoor seating but we like to sit outside if the weather permits.

The menu always contains a lot of local, fresh produce with plenty of options for sharing plates as well as pizzas and mains.

An up to date menu can be found on the Eagle Bay Brewing website.

Although they welcome walk in’s, I would recommend reserving a table as it is very popular and can get booked out, especially in peak season.

There’s a small playground for the children and large grassed areas for them to play.

Our Thoughts on Eagle Bay Brewery

It’s relaxing sitting outside with a beer or wine, taking in the beautiful views over the lake. We usually share a pizza or two for lunch but the rest of the menu looks delicious. The service is very good and friendly.

Even though I enjoy a beer, I do like the option to be able to have wine if I feel like it.

  1. This sounds like the perfect place for our family. My husband and stepsons love craft beer, and brew their own. I can’t stand the stuff myself but I do like my wine. Eagle Bay would satisfy all of us very nicely! Definitely taking some notes here 🙂

  2. This looks like my kind of place! I love sitting outside in the countryside admiring the views while sipping on a glass of wine or a good beer! Used to do it a lot more when we lived in the U.S. and I miss it now that we’re in Hong Kong. Putting this on my list for a visit to WA.
