Cascade Brewery, Hobart

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 love my beer and dragged my 77 year old mom along to this brewery tour. I think even she loved it :) Very interesting history with some great beers afterwards.  more »

  • It was a refreshing and informative presentation of the brewery’s rich history and present-day operations. My family and I really enjoyed the tour. For 30$ it was definitely worth every penny we spent. We also got to taste 4 different beers or ciders of our choice produced by the brewery. If you are driving and have to leave immediately due to time constraints you can also trade in your tokens for take aways 😊
  • Had the best tour today. We had James as our tour guide with Beau also hanging about. James did such a fantastic job and had tons of great trivia. Such a great tour guide. I’d recommend trying to get him as your tour guide if you can!!! 10/10 would come back. Plus the beer and cider is delicious!!!! THANKS JAMES!!! (Too poor to piss in = best line ever) 😂
  • Australia’s oldest brewery. Worth visiting. It gives you a great understanding of the process behind beer and cider making. The tasting session in the end was a beautiful experience, where you can sit down and enjoy beer tasting enjoying the scenic beauty of a wonderfully maintained garden.
  • The tour represents a great day out in Hobart! Hear fascinating stories about the breweries past and learn all about the brewing process from start to finish. Stop by the visitors centre after for a lovely cold beer (or two) and lunch!
  • Nice enough but doesn't have the same appeal/feel (to me) as the smaller micro-brewery scene and that comes through in the beer and atmosphere. It's basically not that cool. Best part of the place is the gardens, which are brilliant for a nice beer in the sun.
