Seven Sheds Brewery Tasmania

Paradise Pale,  Kentish Ale, Willie Warmer, Elephant’s Trunk or Stark Raven.

Seven Sheds Brewery, Meadery and Hop Garden craft these weirdly named brews ready for lovers of a unique drink to savour. What brews are available can depend on the season because fresh local produce is important in the process. This means each trip to Seven Sheds allows you to discover something new!

Seven Sheds Brewery is centrally located in Tasmania’s north-west gourmet touring region. Visit it on the way to Cradle Mountain, on a holiday in Tasmania or as a day-touring option using Cradle as a base. However you get there, drop in and try their brews!

Established by beer writer and home brewer Willie Simpson and his partner regional development practitioner Catherine Stark, the business has evolved from offering a single beer – Kentish Ale – upon opening in 2008, to having four permanent brews available all-year-round.  In addition,  two regular seasonals and a range of single-batch “brewers reserve” beers are generally available that provide examples of the diverse beer styles that are being reinvigorated and creatively invented in Australia’s rapidly growing craft beer industry.

The traditional bitter style Kentish Ale remains the flagship and is typical of the robust, character-driven and well-balanced styles that form the backbone of the Seven Sheds range. Other regulars are dark ale Willie Warmer and Belgian-style Elephants Trunk.  Winter seasonal Stark Raven is a full-bodied oatmeal stout, while a raspberry wheat beer, Razzamatazz, and summer seasonal Paradise Pale both offer refreshing lighter flavours.

While touring the region, gather up other tasty treats ranging from chocolate to smallgoods, smoked salmon to ginseng, raspberries, apples, honeys, cherries and cheese.  There are also several wineries and a small distillery in the Cradle Country touring region. Many outlets offer year-round visitor facilities and larger outlets offer lunches and picnic hampers.

The Seven Sheds cellar door is open from 11am Wednesday to Sunday throughout the year and most public holidays, with seven-day trading from Boxing Day until the end of January.  Closing time is 5pm for most of the year; 3pm during the winter months June to August.  Lunch platters are available during summer months December to February.
