Cascade Brewery, Hobart

4.2
#1 of 17 in Breweries in Tasmania
Founded by an ex-convict in 1832, Cascade Brewery represents the oldest still-operating brewery in the country. Set against the backdrop of a snowcapped mountain and surrounded by lush gardens, the brewery draws clean water from a nearby cascade for its brewing process. Join a tour to learn all about beer-making, and then reap your rewards with a tasting at the end. Pay attention to the label of the brewery's premium lager, depicting the extinct Tasmanian tiger. Note that you'll have to walk up and down a lot of stairs. Plan my day in Hobart using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • I'm more into history than beer, so was delighted to have some significant history pointed out. I was amused at the phantom window in the front façade.  more »

  • We have been there for lunch. It was delicious but the kick was missing to make it yummy. The beer was good and fresh from the tap. They have a nice garden where kids can run around.
  • Great tour! The guide was really informative and Cascade Brewery has a really interesting history. You get tokens to sample beer after the tour and we got extra free samples for answering the trivia questions at the end of the tour correctly. Great beer too! Not in downtown Hobart, but it was relatively easy to get to (there’s a public bus that goes from downtown Hobart to right across from the brewery or cabbing there is reasonably priced).
  • I came here for lunch and it surprised me with how Cascade Brewery looks inside. The garden is lush, green and scattered with water features. The food was sensational. We especially loved the stout scones- well worth the price! On the day we arrived (Sunday), a bbq lunch was also an option, in addition to their menu. They had a great jazz band playing in the garden and the atmosphere was chilled. Well worth a visit- oh and grab a beer! Yum!
  • Tour of the brewery was great. Our guide was very i informative and passionate about the brewery and its history. Food and service was great. Private function very well organised.
  • We had lunch and a couple of beers there. Pretty nice place. Didn't get time to do the tour. Trying the different beers was the best part! They have a very nice beer garden out the back, which you can walk along the different pathways to explore
