Beer makers from Kalbarri to Kalgoorlie will meet in Albany on June 26 to vie for the unofficial title of best seasonal brew in the state.

Wilson Brewing Company’s inaugural Battle of the Regions event will see six breweries from six different regions put forth a signature beer for punters to taste and vote for their number one favourite.

The winning brewery takes home regional bragging rights and a large trophy.

Beerfarm (South West), Wedgetail Brewing Co (Peel), Beaten Track Brewery (Goldfields), Blasta Brewing Company (Perth), Finlay’s Kalbarri (Mid West) and Wilson Brewing Company (Great Southern) will all go head-to-head to claim the title.

Wilson Brewing Company’s Liz Northern said Battle of the Regions was the first of its kind in the Great Southern. 

“It’s something to bring regional breweries together as that rarely happens,” she said.

“It’s bringing something new to the Great Southern so hopefully everyone gets amongst it.”

A panel of brewery representatives will also be up on stage to take a deep dive into the industry and discuss the beer they’ve put forward for the event.

“In the brewing industry, people love new and exciting, so we’re trying to get seasonal or best brews to be put forward to get the punters excited,” Ms Northern said.
