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.

  • We visited in a ‘warm’ summer day and thoroughly enjoyed the gardens, food and bevvies. You can pay for a tour but this is not necessary if you just want to sit and soak in the surroundings.  more »
  • Fantastic lunch and beer tasting. Only a few minutes out of Hobart and well worth the trip. Planning on doing a tour next time  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) 😂
