SWAN VALLEY cideries and breweries are being celebrated in the launch of a new tourism campaign to highlight what the region has to offer.

The City of Swan launched the Swan Valley Cider and Ale Trail last night at an event at Oakover Estate.

The trail features an impressive line-up of local establishments including Elmar’s in the Valley, Duckstein Brewery, Funk Cider, Oakover Estate, Mash Brewery, Ironbark Brewery, Feral Brewing Company, Figtree Estate and Homestead Brewery.

City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said the new trail would bring yet another exciting tourism experience to the region.

“While the Swan Valley is characterised by many third and fourth generation family owned wineries, there’s also a growing number of talented brewers in the region,” he said.

“This just adds to the already burgeoning mix of wineries, fresh produce and eateries, and helps to make the Swan Valley an event more desirable location for local, interstate and international visitors.”

Swan Valley/Gidgegannup ward councillor Darryl Trease said the Cider and Ale Trail was a great example of collaboration between local businesses and the city.

“Whether you’re after a pint of crafted ale, a specialty cider or an authentic brewers experience the Cider and Ale Trail has it all,” he said.

To celebrate the launch of the Cider and Ale Trail, the City of Swan is giving one lucky person the chance to win a year’s worth of Swan Valley cider and beer.
