The Cascade Brewery is Australia’s oldest brewery, located in South Hobart, Tasmania. The brewery is situated in the foothills of Mount Wellington, a five-minute drive from Hobart’s central business district.
Cascade Brewery produces a range of fine Tasmanian beers and alcoholic apple ciders. You can take a brewery tour to see all aspects of the beer-making process – from malting and brewing to packaging. Bookings are essential and the tour involves plenty of stair climbing, but your efforts will be rewarded with four thirst-quenching beers or ciders at the end.
The Cascades Visitors’ Centre, once the brewery manager’s house, is now a modern, light-filled building incorporating a bar and restaurant. You can sample the Cascade range here and enjoy a meal by the atrium windows, which have views of the brewery’s castle-like facade and heritage listed gardens. Stroll through three hectares of gardens or browse in the retail shop.
The Cascade Brewery was established in 1824 by 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, including Cascade Pale, Australia’s oldest continuously brewed beer since 1832.
