Step inside Australia's oldest operating brewery, nestled at the foot of the majestic Mount Wellington, to learn how Cascade has been crafting beer since 1832. Our guides will share Cascade's fabled recipe; a dash of history, a healthy dose of Tasmania's finest ingredients and a generous serve of brewing craft. You can take a tour or just relax and enjoy Cascade beers and Mercury ciders, savour a delicious lunch and wander our three acres of heritage gardens.

The Visitor Centre is open 7 days a week between 10am - 5pm, excluding Good Friday and Christmas day and tours operate daily.

Great Afternoon Tour and Beer Tasting

What can go wrong with a brewery tour? Nothing! Great tour of the old plant, and a history that is longer than imagined.

What a historic journey the Beer factory had in the past. The way the establishment got over the fire and rebuilt the entire structure and got it going is note worthy. The beer tour was very informative. The selection of beer was very good and I recommend a must visit to the Cascade Beer Factory, Hobart, Tasmania.

The brewery is close to Hobart centre and there is lots of parking available / buses pass the door! The tour reception area and gardens are beautiful. The tour was led by a brewery employee who had a working knowledge of the plant and had a great sense of humour. We walked across the road to the brewery (which was... More

Loved the guided tour around the factory. It was Sunday so the factory wasn't running, but the stories and the tour were still great. Loved the four free beers at the end too. If we'd known about those we might have taxi'd up there from town...

The tour is more than just a visit to the brewery. Sam (our guide) gave us a lot of history of Hobart, along with a lot of background on the area and the brewery's founder, Peter deGraves. It was a very informative walk-about with lots of the ins and outs of beer making.. At the end we were treated to... More

A beautiful beginning to Autum and a visit to the historic town of Hobart is a delightful get away. As a group of four we decided to do the Cascade Brewery tour without having to have a designated driver so we opted for the Redecker hop on hop off including the brewery tour. It's a good way to see a... More

We did the brewery tour which had just the right amount of detail without becoming boring. Then went to the tasting and took part in the beer pouring competition.
