Valley Social is a new brewery concept for Western Australia, having opened in Perth’s beautiful Swan Valley on Sunday 10th July 2022, at the site which was formerly Elmar’s in the Valley. This newly renovated and reimagined venue features multiple unique zones to drink, eat, relax and unwind in
Our spacious brewery interior features stunning Australian Sheoak wooden floors and high arched acoustic lined ceilings, which contribute to a sense of space and grandeur as you enter our front door. Floor to ceiling timber framed stacker doors and windows feature across the front façade of the indoor space, as well as to the back leading to the alfresco, bathing the venue in an abundance of natural light. Additional large highlight windows in the front foyer entrance and at the back add to this. Having distinctly an overall industrial design feel in its structure, the fixtures and fittings reflect this, and the paint colour scheme highlights all elements to great effect.
The glass viewing window at our main bar features our unique copper and glass brew tanks, which we have replicated with the use of copper dome light fittings above our bar.
Our seating is modern with a retro bistro feel, perfectly complementing our dark stained wood tables. Occasional pops of vibrant green amongst our chairs and via our planters pay homage to the venues’ hemp-infused focus. The highlight of the space is an entire feature wall covered with a hemp crop photo landscape, a perfect contrast to the dark furniture.
The Spirit Lounge space exudes luxury and comfort, with designer replica velvet chairs, leather lounges and occasional furniture that speaks to mid-century design. This area invites patrons to sit down and savour our Herbee Gin and Vodka produced onsite, after sampling from the nearby tasting bar.
Our outdoor areas start with our front lawns, shaded by Eucalypts, and here you’ll find outdoor beanbag sets to sit and enjoy, as well as picnic tables and bar tables on the paving in front of the venue. We have complemented the paved area with potted plants in charcoal painted wine barrels, which pop against the green of the lawn, and pay homage to our area’s wine heritage.
Moving outside the back doors to the freshly repainted alfresco area, fully enclosable by clear blinds, you’ll will find additional seated dining similar to indoor, as well as natural edge wood bar tables and and bronze industrial stools in front of our outside bar. Beyond those, we have picnic tables and several outdoor sofa settings. Our alfresco is modern and inviting, freshly painted in light grey and charcoal tones to reflect our industrial feel.
The warmer weather invites patrons to dine outside on our paving, at picnic tables painted a funky green and natural brown, which blend in beautifully with the colours of nature all around. We also have additional outdoor sofa sets under gazebos here. The view over our expansive lawn to huge Eucalypt trees is stunning and relaxing. To one side is our neighbour’s vineyards to gaze upon, which provides a relaxing AND convincing backdrop for our wine lovers and beer drinkers alike.
Our lawn area is perfect for large functions and plays host each year to Oktoberfest and the Highland Games. Boho picnics bookings under the shady trees are planned for the coming months as well, to add to the existing outdoor beanbags and wooden deck chairs sets dotted around the lawn. These invite you to lounge, whilst sipping our beer and sampling our kitchen’s finest.
Our last, but not least, feature is our huge Marquee at the end of our lawn, which boasts 450m2 of undercover area and plays host to large functions, bus groups and festivals. You’ll find a multitude of outdoor sofas, table dining and wine barrel bar seating, which is capable of hosting 150-200 people.
Beverages – Valley Social serve our own in-house made craft hemp-infused beers and our hemp infused spirits, along with some venue-favourite spirits used to craft our cocktails. We pay homage to the Swan Valley region by proudly featuring locally made ciders from Funk Cider and quality wines also produced in the district, from prestigious wineries such as Windy Creek, Torrent Estate, Upper Reach Winery and Pinelli Wines.
Food – We create contemporary Australian cuisine with a North American BBQ influence, which allows cater to for all dietary requirements, – vegan and vegetarian options aplenty. We proudly use Swan Valley locally sourced produce where available, along with that produced elsewhere in Western Australian.
