Caves Road Collective, home of Black Brewing Co

Breweries, Cideries & Distilleries

Overview

Uncompromising craft beers, boutique gin, and some of Margaret River’s best wine varieties. That’s what our team delivers in our creative playground. We’re home to Black Brewing Co., Dune Distilling, Ground to Cloud Wines and our in-house restaurant, all delivered by our passionate staff.

Across the whole Collective, our intention is to create incredible memories. Year round, visitors can drop in for a beer, gin or wine tasting, lunch on the deck or by the fire, a late afternoon saison and bar snack, family gatherings in the beer garden, or even a game of pool. We host regular exhibitions, music and special events, and are one of the region’s top spots for weddings (yes, our lake and gardens are that good-looking).

More information

Visitors can drop in for a beer or wine tasting, a delicious lunch by the fire or on the deck in summer, enjoy late afternoon bar snacks, a sampling of gin from Dune Distilling, a few Black Brewing Co beers with mates in the beer garden, family gatherings, a game of pool, or just a cheeky four-pack takeaway! 

The full Caves Road Collective experience now includes:

Caves Road Collective's restaurant is lead by Chef Hayden Vink with a delicious pared-back menu using great quality local ingredients from the ocean, pasture, garden and pantry. The restaurant has recently taken home the Australian Good Food Guide Readers' Choice Award in the "tapas" category of 2018. Kids are welcome and have their own special menu, a playground, and loads of space to run around and be entertained.

Caves Road Collective events and weddings: the venue hosts regular events, exhibitions and live music and remains Margaret River’s leading spot for stunning wedding ceremonies and receptions for 80 to 500 guests. The venue will also play host to a Margaret River Gourmet Escape satellite event this year with a pop-up restaurant and bar at the Gourmet Village.

Black Brewing Co: Brewers Shannon Grigg and Adam Brookes are pumping out some terrific brews under Black Brewing Co’s relaunched brand and packaging with a four-fold increase in production capacity. They’ve won a couple of awards already this year and are flat-out meeting the increasing demand for the brand’s Lager, IPA, Bao Bao Milk Stout, Fresh Ale, Saison and new Pale Ale. They also brew Honest Ale for local surfing legends Taj Burrow, Dino Adrian and Jay Davies. 

Dune Distilling: Dune Distilling’s pilot gin is a quiet achiever, walking out the door and available at some of WA’s best bars. It’s made on site, and will soon be lifted to a new level thanks to the two new stills on the way from the Netherlands. 

Ground to Cloud wines: Ground to Cloud wines are produced from the property’s vineyards including Margaret River’s best varieties: Chardonnay, Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, Syrah, and Rose. 

We’re making beer, wine, spirits, food and incredible memories. 

See you soon @ Caves Road Collective.

We had a excellent experience here yesterday and felt this place deserves a higher rating than it currently does. The whole complex has been developed with the customer experience in mind. The main draw card is the incredible dam that you look out upon. Sunday specials included free kids meals, $10 pints and a really great live musician. The energy of the place was relaxed, friendly and with a touch of class. The beer is excellent and they have a nice rotation of different styles. The food was really good and well priced against surrounding options. Stand outs where the cauliflower and the Asian salads. This place has something for anyone. There are different spaces throughout which have different feels- inside overlooking the dam is quite elegant and then outside tables near the kids playground are more casual. We will definitely be coming back :)

This Brewery was absolutely amazing. We received a recommendation from a local and we are so glad we took it. We got served by Jasmine who did our wine tasting for us. She was absolutely incredible. We had such a good laugh, chat, time and she was extremely knowledgeable and not only with the wine- we grabbed some beers afterwards sat on the deck and enjoyed the serenity. Would highly recommend. Staff/service and atmosphere second to none! Will be back for sure!

Really nice venue. We went on a wet cold day and the sales rep happened to be working - he helped is out with a tasting paddle and some general info before we settled in front of a fireplace with some drinks. Great way to spend some time. They know how to make a brew!

Great place for tasting gin, beer and wine. Taylor was very helpful and inviting to come and enjoy the food and drinks. I especially enjoyed the cool breeze from the lake while tasting the beers and cider. Enjoyed the Chilli Salt fries
