This brewery tour is quite informative. Safety measures are perfectly followed . The Gardens are beautiful. Beer tasting is a great event as they serve 5 varieties of fresh brew which is damn chilled.

A lovely place 10 minutes from town for a beer with a view. Take the local bus it's cheap and easy and somehow faster than our taxi was. We didn't book a tour just wanted to visit for a look around the gardens. Would be lovely in summertime.

A huge thank you to Jen for a great brewery tour last week. She was interesting informative warm and friendly. Not to mention the tasting at the end of the tour. If you like beer and cider treat yourself. It is worth it

Nice to have a short visit before or after Mt Wellington. Last Brewery tour was finished by the time we got there, however, it was nice to see the Cascade building.. and taste beer onsite, kids loved the ribs and wedges.

There's nothing like a factory tour to while away a few hours - and what could be better than a beer factory tour?! It was a cold and rainy day in Hobart and the factory looks bleak and foreboding on the outside, reminiscent of an 18th century home for the criminally insane. The tour guide was great - bright, humorous... More
