Australia’s Oldest Brewery
Established in 1824, Cascade Brewery Co. proudly holds a revered place in Australia’s Brewing History. From humble beginnings as a sawmilling operation in the foothills of Mount Wellington, Cascade is now the country’s oldest operating brewery. The business was founded by English settlers, Peter Degraves and brother-in-law, Major Hugh Macintosh, who arrived on Tasmania’s shores in 1824. Plans for Cascade Brewery were born during Degraves’ stint in the old Hobart Gaol, serving time for an offence that he had committed prior to emigrating.
Degraves recognised that he had access to the pure waters flowing from Mount Wellington and devised a strategy for a groundbreaking brewery. Upon his release from Gaol in 1831 Degraves set about realising his vision to brew a genuine and pure beer and in December 1832 the first Cascade Brewery Co. beer was sold.
Australia’s favourite light beer, Cascade Premium Light is a refreshing full-flavoured lager. Our special combination of hops and malts deliver an especially well balanced and flavoursome low-alcohol beer.
