“new appreciation of beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Would reconmend doing a tour. We are a family of four and did the tour that included the tasting at the end of the tour. Obviously the kids were not offered the beer but were offered a mineral water. I am not a beer drinker but enjoyed the tasting and the matching with different cheeses. The kids found the tour interesting.

“Highly Recommended for beer drinkers and others”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Well worth the visit. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour, and the beer and cheese tasting afterwards. Informative guide. We received this as a gift and would do the same for others. Kids found it interesting too.

“Beer Lovers Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We did the Boag's Beer Lovers Tour, which included a tour of the brewery (which is a working brewery), as well as beer & cheese tasting afterward.
Our guide was great, very knowledgeable & welcoming. The tour was also very good. It's quite an informative tour. They provide you with all the safety gear that you need. You just need to wear closed in shoes.
The beers & cheeses were very nice. I think I'm a Boag's convert!

“Best Value Beer in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

We were the only travellers doing the guided tour and had one lovely young lass who took us on our own personal tour. Very interesting seeing a full working brewery and the history aspect was fantastic. The tasting of beers and local cheese was the icing on the cake.

“Beer for the boys ( and girls)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

J Boag and Son factory tour is well worth a visit whilst in Launceston. Reviewing the history and viewing the newly installed production line shws the contrast in the methods and styles of beers over the years. One bit of advise is to ask if the lines are actually running when you book a tour, as this is a working factory so they do have their breaks.
