Petition Beer Corner

Bars, Craft beer Perth Central
4 out of 5 stars
(1user review)

In the CBD's State Buildings you'll find Perth's temple of beer, where indie craft is king

This is where you go to praise the hops gods and it's a bona fide game changer for city beer lovers, offering 18 independent craft brews on tap at any time (on a rotating basis) and a take-home service for bottles and growlers. With the original Little Creatures founders at the core of the team that set up Petition, there’s real pedigree behind the venture, and a staff of Certified Beer Servers (through the Cicerone Certification Program). They're only the second venue in Australia to make this claim. While WA brews are central to Beer Corner's repertoire, a wide-reaching international slate of beers can also be expected. Food courtesy of head chef Jesse Blake (one-time Cumulus Inc sous chef) matches the beer direction perfectly, with salt and vinegar chicharrones and organic cheeseburger and onion rings hitting the spot.

Petition Beer Corner says
Signing up, together as one, Petition is a collective of individual venues focused on building relationships with producers that share our passion for delivering quality produce for you to enjoy. Over 100 years ago, petitioners would gather in the centre of Perth to lobby for causes they believed in. They would march down the terrace, lining the building where Petition now stands; on the Barrack St. side of the State Buildings. Here, sits Petition Beer Corner, Petition Kitchen and Petition Wine Bar & Merchant. Three spaces that offer an 18-tap craft beer bar, a bistro and an inner city wine bar.

Our first item was the Grilled Chorizo with lemon. This was a pretty simple item that consisted of grilled chorizo pieces and a wedge of lemon. I liked it because the chorizo was slightly tougher than what I’m used to in London but my parents weren’t as keen because it wasn’t as fatty, which made it tougher in texture.

Next, we had the Fried Lamb Ribs with pesto. This was my favourite dish because the ribs were done extremely well! It was seasoned simply and the flavour really came out from dipping the ribs into the sour cream and pesto mix. However, I did find that a few ribs had a lot more fat than meat on them.

My mother was keen on ordering the Szechuan Spiced Chicken Wings with aioli. We thought this was going to be spicy, given the Szechuan seasoning but we were pretty disappointed. It didn’t taste like there was any chili or spice in it, but simply a salt and pepper seasoning. The wings were fried really well though, they had an extremely crispy skin and the meat was cooked well inside.

Seeing as we were in the land known for good meat, my father and I really wanted the Black Angus Cheeseburger with chipotle sauce, red cabbage and BBQ sauce. As hoped, the beef patty was delicious! It was cooked to about a medium rare/medium liking, which left the meat nice and tender. I liked the chipotle sauce but found that there was just a bit too much of it used in the burger.

As for drinks, I went for a cider because I’m not a big fan of beer. The Family Xmas, which was a festive apple cider. As expected, it had a very festive taste to it – filled with spices you would typically find in mulled apple cider. I enjoyed it and went for the half pint sized glass.

Overall, I thought it was a pretty lovely experience. Even though we didn’t get to try Petition Kitchen, which was our original plan, I was satisfied with what we had in replacement. Petition Beer Corner seems like a great place to come with family and/or friends. I imagine it’s a lot more lively in the evenings when people get off work though!
