The museum highlights the Tasmanian brewing company’s history since its founding in 1883 by James Boag and his son. You’ll learn the fascinating story of the Boag family, but the real highlight is the choice of brewery tours on offer.
Take the one-hour Discovery Tour to learn how the beers are brewed and packaged, plus have an educational tasting session.
The true aficionado will want to choose the Beer Lovers Tour for 1.5 hours of pure unadulterated beer appreciation – explore the brewing process in detail then taste the award-winning beers, with local Tasmanian cheeses to soak up the amber nectar.
The Amber Ticket Tasting is the Saturday-only exploration of each beer’s individual taste, appearance, aroma and character.
As a general guide, Boag’s beers are noted for their quality and style, and include a European-style pilsner, traditional draught lager and traditional English pale ale.
Entry to the museum is free, and there are various charges for tours.
Except for the rain, it was a very informative tour. The bus driver even dropped us back at our hotel.
