When Michael was recently invited to play at Cascade Brewhouse in Hobart, it was the perfect excuse for a short break and an overnight stay. Despite living in Tasmania for ten years, we have never visited Cascade Brewery. The gothic façade of Australia’s oldest operating brewery seems to dwarf the majesty of Mount Wellington.
Across the road, the brewhouse is more than just the ticket office for brewery tours.
Snippets of history await in the entrance hall
and in other rooms adjacent to the light, airy restaurant and bar.
While Michael set up his paraphernalia,
I ventured out to explore the three acres of immaculate heritage gardens.
It’s easy to see why the venue is perfect for weddings and functions.
Needless to say, the afternoon entertainment was superb, as was the beer.
We returned the next morning to sample the new brunch menu, I don’t have photos but believe me, the offerings are amazing. I did take the opportunity of an empty bar
to share with you the liquid delicacies on tap at Cascade Brewery.
A big thank you to Kirk for your hospitality and generosity, looking forward to catching up again.
