The Cascade Brewery is Australia’s oldest continuously operating brewery, in South Hobart, Tasmania. The brewery is located in the foothills of Mount Wellington, five minutes’ drive from Hobart’s central business district.
The Cascade Brewery was established in 1824 by ex-convict Peter Degraves. Today, Cascade's brewers combine traditional brewing skills and pure mountain water with premium Tasmanian barley and hops to create the Cascade range, which includes the multi-award winning Cascade Premium Lager - voted 'Best Premium Beer in Australia' in the 2003 Australian Good Taste Beer Awards
You can take a two-hour brewery tour to see all aspects of the beer-making process – from malting and brewing to packaging. Tour involves plenty of stair climbing, but your efforts will be rewarded by thirst-quenching free samples at the end.
Please bring your camera to capture the views and settings.
Cider/beer tasting is available for passengers aged 18 years or over. To make your day as enjoyable as possible, please ensure that you wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and jacket, and bring along some sunscreen and bottled water.
The Cascade Brewery is a fully-operational work site therefore all visitors MUST wear fully enclosed flat shoes (like sneakers or runners) long trousers to the ankle and NO earrings, necklaces or bangles.
The brewery tour is not suitable for people in wheelchairs or who use walking aids. There are over 100 stairs on the tour and the building is very old and has numerous levels which are not suitable for anyone with walking problems.
