We did the tour and it was better than I expected. I have done other brewery tours but this one was the best by far. Our tour guide Benike was fantastic. Highly recommend doing this tour if you are in Launceston.

There are stairs to the initial waiting (1 flight) Then a set of stairs to view where the beer is fermented The last set is where you first started to finish and try some of their range of beers
