Tasmanian brewery Moo Brew is celebrating its 18th anniversary this month at its Hobart taphouse Manky Sally’s.
The birthday bash will take place on November 18 from 3pm with an even split of core range and limited release beers pouring through their 14 taps. One of those special releases is the Yuzu Kosho Gose birthday brew and its first keg will pour free to party-goers.
Moo’s managing director Lauren Sheppard said: “Eighteen years of independent local craft brewing is a notable milestone, with so few breweries able to claim this title, we’re overflowing with pride. This coming of age is all the sweeter with the opening of Sally’s, allowing us to showcase the very best of Moo Brew”.
Opened in 2005 by Mona’s David Walsh, the brewery was initially built in Berridale at Moorilla Estate, one of Tasmania’s oldest wineries, purchased by Walsh in the mid-1990s and dubbed “Moo Land”.
Having outgrown the Berriedale brewhouse in 2011, the brewery moved on to its purpose-built Bridgewater home.
Manky Sally’s opened on Hobart’s Salamanca strip earlier this year and houses a nano-brewery.
“Moo Brew’s commitment to the classics and thirst for experimentation allows us the freedom to create, cause a stir, and break the rules when it suits,” head brewer Jack Viney added.
“I’m stoked to head up a brewery that’s proudly local, unpretentious and keen on making damn good beers from Tasmania.”
