The Tasmanian Microbrewing Scene

Saint John Craft Beer

Anyone that has visited Hobart in the past year or two will be aware that the craft beer scene in the city has really come alive. Its annual Tasmanian International Beer Fest is one of the largest and most successful in Australia. Thus, was augmented by the inaugural Beer Lovers Week, which saw a number of events take place at venues throughout the capital.

The Tasmanian microbrewing scene is also well established, with a number of brewers each with their own unique style and character. Yet, when you step outside of Hobart, it hasn’t been as easy to find places selling craft beer other than the breweries themselves. There are oases, such as the idyllic Weldborough Hotel in the northeast, which stocks beers and ciders from every local producer. Crown Cellars in Launceston, plus some taps and decent bottle lists at the likes of Launceston’s Pizza Pub. Additionally, Newstead Hotel, The Cock n Bull, Alchemy, Dickens Cider House, Mud Bar, Black Cow and Stillwater.



Saint John Craft Beer

Now the city has a new dedicated craft beer venue. Former Crown Cellars head honcho Luke Dempsey opened Saint John Craft Beer on January 17 and already it’s going great guns. Luke, who is also the Northdown Craft Beer rep for the state, said  they offer six rotating taps: five beer and one cider. They try to have a balance of styles and regions on at any one time. They also have a selection of approximately 100 bottled beers and ciders. Available to drink in or takeaway plus growler fills and a BYO food policy.

He added that they try to support as many local producers as possible. Making sure a third of their taps are local and always have a big range of local stuff in bottles. He reckons an uncertain local economy and the domination of Boags may have played a role in craft beer’s slow take up in Launceston but sees that changing.
