Cheers, this is my first post and wanted to introduce myself here. I'm from Northern California and I'm traveling across AU on a rock tour.

I found this site through themetaltravelguide.com.  I'm looking for some good metal/ punk/ rock bars or good places to drink. Any suggestions?  I'm in Perth for the next few days. What are some good places around?

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Mate, the metal travel guide http://www.metaltravelguide.com/mtg/index.php is one of the best metal resources EVER. I used it extensively when planning my euro metal assaults the last few years and will continue to do so for my upcoming holidays. Part and parcel of that was adding WF on there as a resource ( http://www.metaltravelguide.com/mtg/index.php?option=com_mtree&task=listcats&cat_id=13&Itemid=56 ) so im fucking stoked that someone actually referred back here from my entry on that website!! ;D

Not much in the way of metal gigs / bars here unfortunately. If you want some generic rock / metal pap you can try rocket room on friday (see my other metaltravelguide entry). Alternatively theres this gig on saturday at the castle hotel which is for far more ecclectic / extreme metal tastes:

Cheers & beers! ;D

G'day mate,

Glad to see you made your way here and welcome!

(And cheers to SOD for the link up  :headbang:)

As he mentioned there is that gig at the Castle on Saturday, and also on Friday night at the Rocket Room is the "Metal of Honour" show:

Hopefully see you out at one of the shows!

Thanks!

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the shows.  Thanks for the recommendations here in Perth!  I think I'll be trying to make my way down to the Rocket Room this evening.

Any local brews that you guys would recommend as well?

Ouch.
Come on now, there is plenty of great American beer and there is a shit ton of nasty ones as well.

So far the good ones here that I've enjoyed are

Little Creatures Pale
Fat Yak Pale
Coopers Pale Ale
James Squire Pale
James Squire Amber

The bad

Swan
Hahn
Beez Neez

The ok

Coopers Sparkling
VB
Tooheys

and yes, I had to spend a weeks wages to have these and the Rocket Room wasn't even open when I got there.

Has anyone been to the Little Creatures Brewery?  I might have to venture there next.

James Squire's Golden Ale is my favourite beer in that sort of price range (not that I can ever afford beer in that price range!)

I'm with Gunskuru regarding Beez Kneez. I never understood the fuss about that beer. It's about as tasteless as Budweiser but for some stupid reason has a hint of honey. Why would anyone want to put honey in a shit beer...or a good beer, for that matter?

I love the irony in the name of the James Squires pub that just opened on Murray St. "The Generous Squire's" or something like that. $10 for a pint of domestic beer is not very generous at all.

Creatures hovers around 8 a pint. Straight from the bright tanks, so it's much better than the shit they dish up at pubs around the city.

I'll happily pay it. If it wasn't so far away from me I'd live there

I don't mind honey in beer, but the light wheat stuff stinks. I've home brewed and added honey with some pretty good results.

Never went inside the Rocket Room. The doors were locked.  Ended up sitting on the patio of this Brass Monkey place smoking and heckling the other folks there.

Would have to say that I'm impressed by the beer in WA.  There isn't really anything good that gets exported to the US from Australia.  All I kept hearing about was VB and Coopers.  

After looking at a map and the inside of my wallet, I doubt that I'll make it to the Little Creatures Brewery.  

I'm sure its expensive as well, but I did hear of a Belgian beer bar around town as well.  Anybody know bout this place?

Yep, The Belgian Beer Cafe on Murray St. It's a trendy hangout for young rich businessmen. If you have the money, it's great cause they serve proper European beers, but it ain't cheap. I think a 330mL glass of just about any beer on the menu will set you back around $9. Having recently been to Europe and bought the same beers in supermarkets there (Leffe, Hoeggarden etc) for roughly $1 per bottle, I don't think I could bring myself to go back to the Belgian Beer Cafe.

It is nice though.

I bought a 30 can block of Haagen blonde for $30 at Celebrations Marrangaroo the other week! I didn't even know Haagen did cans! They didn't taste very good though. Much different to bottled Haagen.

HEH HEH HEH..... i always used to buy Haagen (bottles) until they increased the price to $35. I then reduced my tightness and started buying cartons around the fiddy dorra mark - Boags Premium, Peroni etc. After you drink a nicer drop going back to haagen tastes like drinking wet vomit unfortunately :/

Tis true, but I'll take a $35 carton of Haagen over a $40 carton of Swan Draught any day. You know beer prices are getting out of hand when a carton of super approaches the $40 mark.

That's why I make my own beer!

I just made myself a Bavarian wheat beer with all the extra trimmings (well some of the extra trimmings). Only problem is I have to wait at least a month for it to be ready!

If you want to save some cash, skip the pub & get down to the international beer shop in west leederville. Best selection of kick ass beer ever.
One of the best beers I have ever had I get from there & it is Australian. Not West Aussie though. The company is Holgate, they make awesome brews.
As for honey being shit in beer, I disagree. Honey mead is fucking unreal. My brother has 4 bee hives in Qld & is brewing some now. Will have it perfected by the time I go visit him hahaha.

Billabong Brewery has some really good beers, I quite like the ginger beer even though I'm not a fan of ginger beer in general. The pale ales are quite good as well. Billabong make gluten free beers as well, so if you're a celiac and can't eat wheat or anything gluten, Billabong is awesome. A carton is expensive though. I bought my carton of Billabong Pale Ale from Cellarbrations in Kardinya.

Beer out in pubs in general is pretty expensive, I work in a hotel bar and charging $9 for a stubby of other local or import beers and $9 a pint for the draft beers is pretty ridiculous. Beez Neez is actually better on tap than from the stubby, but still not very good. It is overrated and there are much better beers around.
