Zach has just the right amount of knowledge while being friendly and fun, but don't encourage his puns! We really enjoyed this tour and loved the beer. As a beer maker myself I learnt things. Would definitely recommend it.

Did the tour , found a little long for what it was. The guide wasn't that informed with some of the question which were asked. Tasting at the end was good with 3 types of beer. If you don't drink they offer water or juice.

And what an experience it was! For someone who has just started in the liquor industry, I found this tour a great way to broaden my range of beer knowledge. A big kudos to our tour guide Nat!

Thought this was something of a must do while in Launceston, enjoyed the beer and pie tasting paddles and had some more beer just to be sure!

A well organised tour , very informative of the brewery history and the brewing process. Our guide was excellent an of course the tasting with beer/cheese combinations was the highlight.

Is the Brewer open over the Christmas holiday period? We are considering a trip between boxing day and just after new years day.
