Little Creatures was inspired by the beer culture in north-western USA. Its founders wanted to recreate a beer with a distinctive, hoppy, pasteurised flavour. The Freemantle factory is set in a spectacular location and was also designed to ensure the brewing process was more open and transparent. AIFST members and guests, whether they are interested in the end product or the unique process behind it are invited to join a private tour and tasting. 

Meet other WA AIFST members and see first hand the inner workings of the 2017 Brewery of the Year. 

Members: $15
