Best Breweries and Distilleries in Tasmania

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Tasmania team

Tasmania's spoilt for choice when it comes to breweries and distilleries. Its two world renown brewers, Boags and Cascade, are benchmarks for the state. And its whisky production is higher than all of the other states' put together.

Blessed with an optimal growing climate for hops and barley, as well as an abundance of pure water and ancient peat, Tasmania's secret is in its hills and pure waters. To visit all of the island's micro brewery and distillery offerings, would be to see the entire state. Hidden in the hop-rich banks of the river Derwent to a retreat tucked behind the hills of Burnie, each brewery and distillery will welcome you with a cool, refreshing lager or a soul-warming dram.
