Great visit and tour of the brewery - well recommended. We also did the Hop on Hop off bus to get to the brewery which allowed us to visit the Female Factory at the same time.

I attended this lovely centre for my partner's Christmas function and was more than impressed. The food served was delicious and the atmosphere great. It can get a little noisy due to the acoustics but overall a great venue with attentive staff.

The lunch here is very yummy, as is the beer tastings. Unfortunately we didn't have long pants so couldn't do a tour which was a little disappointing as it looked good. The food and service was great though.

We visited the Cascades Brewery but chose to visit the site & building when on another tour. It is one of the oldest operating breweries in Australia. The history of its establishment was most interesting. I didn't realise that the Derwent River had become so polluted that people were dieing and hence people drank beer so they wouldn't get sick!

Visited the brewery late morning and immediately got great service from Sophie. We ordered a tasting paddle and Sophie explained everything. However once we finished that paddle we went back to order another, so we could taste a bit of everything and the service was terrible. The guy was wearing a name badge but I cannot remember his name (younger... More

We took the "Red Bus" and at the Cascade Brewery, took the Brewery Tour. Guide was very informative, but even after all the stair climbing, didn't get near much plant, only vessels. Saw the Keg Filling Robot and viewed the bottling line through a window. Had some samples included in the tour fee.

I attended the 11am brewery tour in a Saturday and Andrew was the guide. He was informative, funny and knowledgeable. The tour takes you through the brewery processes and also the brewery itself. Being a weekend, there was no activity so it might be worthwhile doing the tour on a weekday to see the processes in action. At the end... More

A great in site to the production of Beer, and how a historical building can still be used. The tasting at the end was always going to be the highlight.
