The tour of the brewery was great. Really interesting & the guide was very informative ;) They were also very generous with the beer & cheese tasting at the end. We wished we could have stayed longer & not driven ;)

Informative- Our 2 guides on this tour readily shared a range of relevant facts about the production of beer which started under the walnut tree. Surprising- The sophisticated process of manufacturing this amber liquid had all of us on the tour admiring the investment required. Impressive- The amount of beer that can be produced per shift is staggering and the... More

We had a great time on the brewery tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we got to learn about the beer making processes on a first hand basis. The tour was finished nicely with good cheese to taste, paired perfectly with great tasting beer. A must do, you won't be disappointed! :)

There was parts of this tour i loved and parts i was disappointed with. Because of the size of the brewery you feel like you really get a good look inside which is great. The guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. At the end you get some tastings paired with Tasmanian cheese which is AMAZING. The tastings are huge... More

Quite expensive for what is offered. The information presented on the tour was in some parts brushed over and somewhat implied which was great for me as somebody who understands the brewing process, however, if this is your first brewery tour you may need to ask for further information to make meaning of the content. The history of Boags itself... More

This tour was very enjoyable, as we learnt about the beer making process and history of Tasmania's breweries. Our tour guide Nicole was fantastic - very knowledgable about the history of the company, willing to answer questions, and very friendly. The tour contained many interesting and humorous anecdotes along the way. The tour is capped off with beer tasting and... More
