Beer in Tasmania

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Cascade Brewery is the oldest brewery in Australia,[1] having been founded in 1824

Beer has been brewed in Tasmania since 1824.

Tasmanian beers include Boags in Launceston and Cascade in Hobart, which are the two largest Tasmanian beer producers in the State.[2] Traditionally people from the south of Tasmania drank Cascade whereas Boags is drunk in the north, however, this is becoming less so as intrastate migration increases.[2] Tasmania also has a number of small craft breweries.

Tasmania was the first Australian colony to tax beer. Its Beer Duty Act of 1880 established a duty of 3 pence per gallon which was raised to four pence in 1892.[3]
