Little Creatures (brewery)

Little Creatures is a microbrewery in Fremantle, Western Australia established in 2000 by the original brewers of the Matilda Bay Brewing Company. The name "Little Creatures" is inspired by a Talking Heads song lyric and refers to the live yeast cells that turn the sugars in malt wort into alcohol.

The brewery building, which was formerly used as a boat shed and crocodile farm, is open to the public and contains a café/restaurant..

A similar establishment, the Little Creatures Dining Hall, was opened in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy in July 2008.

The original Little Creatures ale was a pale ale brewed with Cascade (floral) and Chinook (bitter) whole hop flowers, self-propagated yeast with a secondary bottle fermentation, and Australian malts. They also bottle an amber ale and a pilsener.

The brewery has won a number of Australian International Beer Awards. It has been named Champion International Brewery 2002, Champion Australasian Brewery 2002 and the Pale Ale has been named Champion Ale (2002, 2007) and Champion Bottled Ale (2001).
