Who we are.
Riverside Brewhouse is The Old Brewery’s microbrewery and bar. We have range of award winning beers and cider on tap with rotating seasonal brews. Our bar and terrace area has been redesigned for casual dining so you can order from our bar menu and enjoy a brew or two and soak up the views of the swan river.
Perth boy Mark Reilly realised where his passion lay early in life and worked towards his dream by first completing his Micro Brewery Management & Marketing degree at Edith Cowan University. The practical application of his studies saw young Mark experimenting with brews at home following the styles of various internationally renowned beers.
Having quickly formed a keen following amongst family and friends, Mark moved into commercial scale brewing, gaining invaluable experience in the Swan Valley, building his brewing credentials at Ironbark and Duckstein breweries. With degree in hand he joined Elmar’s in the Swan Valley where he became the sole operator of Elmar’s pristine, German-engineered Joh Albecht microbrewery. Mark then was involved in the set-up of Mash Brewing before taking over the role of Head Brewer at The Old Brewery.
AWARD WINNING EXHIBITOR
Within a year Mark’s tireless dedication saw The Old Brewery recognised as “Australia’s Best New Exhibitor” in the 2009 Australian International Beer Awards. Since then the gongs just keep on coming, with Gold, Silver and Bronze medal awards coming from state, national and international beer shows.
Such is his commitment to the brewing he is actively involved with both National and International craft brewing associations committed to educating the public and hospitality industry about the pleasurable possibilities of craft brewed beer. Almost any day of the week at The Old Brewery you’re able to glimpse Mark busily working just behind the scenes, as he carefully and lovingly brings new brews into the world. He has to work fast, because such is the demand for his award winning beers that it all goes quickly.
