  • The guide was so passionate about our nation's favourite beverage. They've done their job and I'm now a Boagie for life. The beer and cheese tasting concluded a very delightful trip to the adult version of willy wonka.
  • Takes you through the history of the great beer from Tasmania. Loved the museum tour.
  • Cozy bar, good beer, good service and knowledgeable staff.
  • Highly entertaining tour guide. Well worth going along.
