Rocky Ridge Brewing Co are close to opening their cellar door in the heart of Busselton just in time for the Easter holidays.

The cellar door will feature 24 taps of beers produced by Rocky Ridge and will offer consumers tastings and takeaways.

There will be causal seating inside, bean bags out on the lawn, a children's playground out the back, and will be setup so people can go and experience their beers.

Owner Hamish Coates said in the short to medium term they would not be serving pints or encourage people to spend the whole day there.

"It will be about people coming in to experience our beers, hopefully enjoy them so they take a four-pack away," he said.

Consumers can also expect to find a fridge full of cheeses, cold meats, olives and other antipasto foods so they can make their own platters.

"Hopefully all things going well, we will get food trucks in on the weekends, just to keep everyone happy and support a few of the local guys who are struggling to find places to setup," Mr Coates said.

"It is going to be great, I cannot wait."

Mr Coates expects major works at their site on Marine Terrace (near the corner of Queen Street) to be completed this week.

"Next week we will be doing all the finishing touches and getting the furniture in, finally" he said.

"It has been a long journey. The brewery went in really quick, we grew a lot faster than we anticipated, then Darleen's came along so we took that on.

"We were finally at the point where we were so close, we decided to just get in and get the cellar door open.

"We have a lot going on, and it is good, I feel like it will only get better down here, particularly now the brewery is going ahead on the foreshore and a hotel is going in which will be awesome."
