This guided tour is a great way to experience the heritage and brewing craft of Hobart's iconic brewery, Cascade. Step back through Cascade's history and behind the vintage sandstone facade to view the workings of this unique brewery. Enjoy some beers, afterwards!
A casual beer or cider is great, but indulging in a behind-the-scenes look and tasting experience at an iconic brewery takes things to the next level. Cascade is Australia’s oldest operating brewery and it’s the perfect day out for any lovers of a tasty brew, amazing scenery, and a good time.
Impossible to miss, Cascade’s vintage sandstone facade stands tall against the lush green hills of Hobart. Your fully guided tour will take you through Cascade’s heritage and unique brewing craft as you explore where the magic happens. They’ve been crafting beer since 1832 and you’ll learn all about the ingredients and special techniques used to make the produce so special. And as for the history, the plans for Cascade Brewery were hatched by a convict during his time in the old Hobart Gaol, so there’s a lot of interesting details to talk about.
After your tour, you’ll move on from learning to tasting. Enjoy four 7oz tastings of Cascade beers or Mercury ciders (or a bit of both), and savour the taste of Australia’s longest-standing brews. When you’re all finished up you can stay for lunch and soak up the beautiful Tasmanian forestry that surrounds the grounds. It’s an exciting and delicious experience that beer lovers need to tick off the bucket list.
