Froth Craft Brewery, Exmouth

Like many Australian craft breweries, Froth was born from a dream: a dream which came to fruition when Froth Craft Brewery opened the doors of its Exmouth brewpub for the first time in February 2017. By opening Exmouth’s inaugural brewery, they became the first new brewery between Perth and Matso's in Broome – a span of 2700km and a good chunk of WA’s coastline.

Inspired by a mission to bring craft beer, quality food, culture and art to the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef region, for Froth’s trio of founders – Phil Gray, Tyler Little and Pete Firth – this ambitious project to bring craft brewing to the Pilbara and Gascoyne regions quickly resulted in the creation of a buzzing community hub as well as a gamut of local and state awards.

The project has grown far beyond Exmouth too, and not just in terms of their reputation for putting on a good time. Froth has since expanded to include a second location, again starting the first brewery in the regional city of Bunbury more than 1,500 kilometres to the south, which you can read about here.

As for their original Exmouth home, it remains a wildly popular spot among both tourists and locals alike. The venue itself is a quirkily repurposed and refurbished space in the town centre, dotted with recycled materials and award-winning murals, that exudes beach shack vibes and rustic charm, whether you’re hanging in the sky bar or beer garden. And, from the off, the team has put great focus on placing Froth at the heart of the community.

The aim has been to exist at the forefront of the arts and entertainment scene in Exmouth, hosting and celebrating live music, comedy, movie screenings, workshops, exhibitions, beer yoga classes, community presentations, beergustations, baby-racing Diaper Derbies, environmental awareness events, and – well, you get the message. Run entirely off solar power and incorporating green operating solutions, they aim to embody a forward-thinking, morally responsible business that minimises its impact on the environment.

When it comes to beverages, Froth Exmouth has craft beer and other such drinks well and truly covered. Sixteen taps regularly rotate between core range beers, seasonal offerings, and guest pours, while an extensive and varied list of other boozy and not-so-boozy drinks are on the menu too, including creative cocktails, slushies and local wines.

Although the majority of production has been relocated to Froth’s newer and bigger Bunbury facility, their original five hectolitre kit at Exmouth is still tasked with producing seasonal and experimental beers under head brewer Tyler Little’s guidance. Look out for lagers, pale and amber ales, refreshing fruited sours suited for the tropics, stouts, IPAs, sessionable mid-strength options and more.

As for grub, their all-day Modern Australian tavern-style approach keeps things simple while aiming to satisfy a wide range of tastes. The likes of slow-cooked pork ribs with smoky BBQ sauce, freshly caught fish and chips, burgers and crispy calamari all feature among a menu packed with fresh, seasonal produce that’s crying out to be enjoyed with a fresh beer in hand.

Froth’s Exmouth home was created via a process of refurbishing, reimagining and revitalising an existing space, and that evolution and constant desire to improve offerings has continued since those first beers were poured in 2017. What hasn’t changed, however, is the commitment to serving the community – whether that’s locals or the constant stream of tourists from across the globe drawn to the region’s natural beauty.

Central to that has been the focus on producing quality craft beer to be enjoyed within a vibrant, welcoming hub that embraces and nurtures the local arts scene, providing a platform for local, aspiring artists while showcasing touring acts with higher profiles. And, in following that path, the Froth founders have not only created a venue with a distinct personality even within WA’s ever-busier craft beer landscape, but also a blueprint for its sibling venue in Bunbury – and maybe more to follow.

Froth Craft Brewery, Exmouth Regulars

Froth Craft Brewery Captain Bunbury

Froth’s Captain Bunbury lager is a lager that errs on the side of light, with a profile similar to that of a Czech style pilsner. Pouring crystal clear with a light, pillowy white head, it emits noble hop aromatics, a touch of biscuit and some very gentle fruity yeast esters. Honey and citrus also feature. It’s light and quaffable, perfectly suited to sitting among Froth’s nautical stylings while taking in the sounds of live music and the sights of busy Victoria street. Jono Outred… Read more

Froth Craft Brewery Don't Be Draught

One for the punters, Don’t Be Draught is a classicly-styled Australian lager that is entirely quaffable. Australian hops and a light malt profile combine for drinkability with gentle citrus and grassy hop character gently featuring in the background. Sessionable with a very clean finish, this draught is modest in both its 4.7 percent ABV and 16 IBU, making it most repeatable. Jono Outred… Read more
Aussie Draught

Froth Craft Brewery Little Phete

A style not so often explored these days, Froth have paid homage to the little-seen mid-strength amber ale with a very sessionable offering. Much like another iconic mid-strength amber from WA, this 3.5 percent ABV, malt forward beer has layers of malt character to the tune of nuttiness, biscuit and light caramel, while some grassy hop character and a firm bitterness come courtesy of Centennial and Williamette hops. Refreshing to finish with just enough body and bitterness, Little Phete is no slouch… Read more
Mid-Strength Amber Ale
28 IBU

Froth Craft Brewery Hopmouth XPA

Froth’s XPA play’s to the strengths of both the pale ale and IPA that inspired it. Vibrant, tropical fruit character is prominent upfront where citrus, pine and stone fruit also feature. Malt influence is minimal, but a moderate body carries the 40 IBUs and layers of fruity hop character well into the finish. The big US players of Mosaic, Simcoe, Chinook, Amarillo Citra make up the hop bill and a balanced bitterness, while the 4.7 percent ABV makes this very approachable. Jono Outred… Read more
40 IBU

Froth Craft Brewery Nor'Esther

Nor’Esther – a pale ale named after a close friend of the Froth team and paying homage to the founders' Australian and American heritage – uses Aussie malt and American hops to yield a well-rounded, crowd-pleasing ale. Cascade, Amarillo, Citra and Simcoe are the hops of choice and together form a resinous, piney profile with citrus and grassiness also featuring. A solid malt character is backed by firm but integrated bitterness and a smooth, medium body. One of Froth’s most popular brews,… Read more
Pale Ale

Froth Craft Brewery Stone Over Hazy Pale

Froth’s Hazy IPA lands on the lighter side of the hazy spectrum, pouring with a light but vibrant yellow, turbid tinge. On smelling, overripe stonefruit, citrus and pine are prominent, thanks to El Dorado, Galaxy, Mosaic and Azacca hops, all boosted by the popular Verdant yeast strain. A lighter malt profile allows hops to shine while still creating some body before the dry, clean finish in what's a very drinkable 5.5 percenter. Jono Outred… Read more
Hazy Pale Ale

Froth Craft Brewery You're Drivin' IPA

One of Froth’s most sizeable offerings, You’re Drivin’ is a bold, American-leaning IPA that features dank, resinous hop characters of pineapple, melon, grapefruit, and sticky pine. The 6.5 percent ABV is well-suited to the generous malt presence in which light caramel, breadiness and some residual sweetness all feature, leading into a long, persistent finish. The 57 IBUs of bitterness hang around after each sip along with some sweet fruit characters. If you’re having a few of these, remember… Read more
American IPA
57 IBU

Froth Craft Brewery Gimme MO Stout

Froth’s darkest core range offering, this stout leans towards the world of porter with a inky black colour but a surprising lightness, with dusty cocoa, espresso and malt-derived caramel flavour all present. Oats offer up some texture and body, carrying coffee and chocolate character into a lingering finish. Available year round, this modest stout is makes for an easy-going all-seasons offering.
