Best Aussie beer is Feral
THE MASTER: Feral's Brendan Varis has been judged Australia's top brewer by Beer & Brewer magazine.

The Swan Valley's Feral Brewing has been judged to have produced Australia's best beer in 2011, while Fremantle's Sail and Anchor Hotel also took out two top gongs at this year's Beer & Brewer Awards.

Feral's Hop Hog won best local beer, and Feral's brewmaster Brendan Varis was named brewer of the year, while the Sail was named best beer venue and best large bar or pub.

The Sail's Matthew Marinich was runner up for 'Beertender' of the year.

Also, Margaret River's Bootleg Brewery was judged to be the top microbrewery in Australia.

The Beer & Brewer Awards were launched in 2010 by Beer & Brewer magazine.

Over 2,000 nominations nationwide were received for this year's awards, which were judged by a panel of experts including beer writers, and experienced brewers, while also taking into account total sales and other industry awards.
