Fabulous brewery with a cool little museum and interesting tours. Once you’ve learned a little about the history of the place head to the bar for a cheap but delicious cheese platter, enjoy a beer and let the chatty bar staff tell you all about the different brews.

James Boag's is my preference for Tasmanian beer and I much preferred this tour than the one of the Cascade Brewery in Hobart. The tour lasted an hour and a half and cost $33.

We find many brwery tours to be a bit 'same same' but in James Boag's tour the really interesting bit is the history lesson at the commencement of the tour. As you nibble on some fine Tasmanian cheese and sip on some of JB's finest ales, you'll learn more than you could have imagined about the local area, the history behind the brewery and the part it has played, and continues to play in Tasmanian culture.

The James Boag Brewery is one of the oldest in Tasmania, first founded in 1881. You can take a tour of the brewery itself, our just visit their bar and try their beers. The beer paddles are good value and give you a sample of their best brews. If the weather is nice, you can sit in the courtyard to drink your tipple. And if it’s rainy, you can explore the beer museum upstairs – the beer ads of the past are particularly amusing!
