Can there be a brewery in Australia with a more beautiful location than the IronHouse Tasmanian Brewery? Established in 2007, the brewery is located at IronHouse Point. It forms part of the White Sands Estate looking out over its own private beach across the ocean.
Originally situated in a shed, the resort went through a major renovation in 2009 and the brewery moved into its new home. It now takes centre stage in White Sands' impressive main building, which also houses a restaurant, bar, shop, kids' play area and terrace, with an outdoor swimming pool completing the picture.
Under the stewardship of Michael Briggs, IronHouse produces a range of traditional beers, from a quaffable lager through to a rich porter. This is embellished with the odd limited release, such as "The Hoff", a highly hopped IPA inspired by Mr Hasselhoff himself.
All beers are brewed with naturally filtered water, and IronHouse Brewery is committed to brewing with Tasmanian ingredients. It sources its malted barley from Joe White Maltings in Devonport, and hops from Bushy Park in the Derwent valley near Hobart.
As an extension to the success of the brewery, IronHouse Tasmanian Brewery will be commissioning a distillery in July 2015 with a dedicated Cellar Door and Tasting Room following soon afterwards.
