The Bootleg Brewery is a microbrewery in Willyabrup, near Margaret River, Western Australia, and is set on 30 hectares (74 acres) of land beside a lake. It was established by Tom Reynolds as a retirement project in 1994 at a time when just two other pub brewers existed in Western Australia. Today, with an annual production of 125,000 litres (2006),[1] Bootleg produces a range of beers including several award-winning varieties which are sold on the domestic and international markets.[2]

Due to the fact Margaret River is more known for wine production, Bootleg Brewery claims to be "an oasis of beer in a desert of wine".

The Bootleg Brewery has won a variety of medals from the Australian International Beer Awards over the years. The medals by beer are as follows:

  • Sou' West Wheat: Bronze (1997, 2001-2004), Silver (2005, 2006)
  • Tom's Brown Ale: Silver (2001, 2002, 2004, 2005)
  • Settlers Pale Ale: Bronze (2003), Silver (2006)
  • Raging Bull: Gold (1999, 2003, 2004), Silver (1997, 1998, 2002, 2005)
  • Amber Light: Bronze (2002-2004)
  • Wils Pils: Gold (2002, 2003), Silver (2002, 2004), Bronze (1997, 2001)
