    On tap at our brew pub in central Hobart, as well as other great pubs around Tasmania.

    Shambles Brewery is located in an old warehouse on the North Hobart strip, just a few blocks from the CBD. The brewery was opened in early 2016 by a couple of keen home brewers, with the help of a network of friends and family (including award-winning architects Room 11 and local designer Atomic Blender.)

    The brewery's name pays homage to the venue's origins as a butchery and small goods factory (with the word “Shambles” originally meaning "meat market" in historical England.) The warehouse space has been embraced and transformed into a brewery, bar and function space, complete with a fire pit, a beer hall beside the brewhouse and a table tennis table made from concrete blocks. The bar also serves Tasmanian wine, cider and spirits alongside Shambles’ beers and has a changing menu of snacks and meals such as sticky pork ribs, sliders and fried chicken.

    Shambles Brewery doesn’t focus on brewing beers with a particular theme or on brewing beer styles from any particular region or era; instead, the brewery strives to produce a diverse range of beers of varying styles, with quality and creativity being the core objectives. Beer is available on site, in other pubs around Tasmania and in take-home growlers direct from the Brewery.

    Shambles Brewery Beers

    Afternoon Delight - Summer Ale

    A refreshing beer chock-full of citrusy hop aroma and flavour. Crisp and easy-drinking, the mild bitterness and approachable alcohol level make this a great session beer. 4.3% abv

    Dirty Copper - Amber Ale

    This copper-coloured ale features caramel and toffee flavours and a firm and pleasant bitterness, with a slight wafting of hop aroma. An easy-drinking, malt-focused beer. 4.8% abv

    For Rex - Rye Golden Ale

    Our tribute to Rex Mundy, the 88 year old founder of Mundy and Sons Butchers who still operate the butchery downstairs. An earthy, full-bodied golden ale with a spicy, peppery malt character derived from the rye, balanced by subtle fruity hop flavours. 5.4% abv.

    Dances With - Hops American IPA

    A combination of five hops gives this beer an intense hop flavour and aroma, with citrus, fruit and pine characters. The hop assault is balanced by a higher alcohol level and a firm, lingering bitterness. 6.4% abv.

    Barry White - Robust Porter

    Big, dark, smooth and velvety with notes of toffee, caramel, chocolate and a hint of coffee - just like the big man himself. The complex malt flavours are matched by stronger alcohol and a balanced bitterness. 6.6% abv.

    Mid - Session Ale

    A Super-Xtra-Ultra-Mega Session Ale (it seems like everyone’s inventing new beer styles so we thought we’d give it a go.) This is a flavourful mid-strength that’s hopped kind of like an IPA, but without the high alcohol or bitterness. 3.5% abv.

    Cool Runnings - Whole Coffee Stout

    This stout is imbued with big dose of cold-brewed, single-origin coffee, selected and roasted by our awesome neighbours at Zimmah Coffee to complement the roasty character of the base beer. For a twist we added a little known ingredient: Cascara – the fruit of the coffee plant that usually gets discarded in favour of the beans inside. Finally, we finished it with a CO2/nitrogen blend for a creamy mouthfeel. 6.8% abv.

    Social Misfit - Double IPA

    A big IPA with a stupid amount of hops thrown in (6 different varieties), this beer is fruity, resinous, dank and unashamedly bitter. The massive flavour and aroma is balanced by an ABV of 8.2% and a malt profile that is solid, but leaves room for the hops to shine. 8.2% abv.

    Crimea River - Russian Imperial Stout

    This huge beer is rich with roasted malt flavours that provide notes of chocolate, coffee, burnt sugar, dark dried fruit and a hint of licorice, with an underlying sweetness and a “warming” alcohol kick. Enjoy in moderation! 10.4% abv.

    Wet Hop American Summer - Harvest Pale Ale

    An American pale ale loaded with freshly-picked “Summer” hops from Bushy Park . The simple, solid pale ale recipe serves as a great base to let the wet hops do their thing – in this case contributing a blend of apricot, melon and subtle citrus flavours with the added “green” character of the fresh hops. 5.5% abv.
