Last Rites Brewing Brewer

When the Last Rites Brewing Company opened the doors of its brewery in October 2015, it was enough of an occasion that Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman was in attendance. He was invited to assist in brewing a beer on the occasion too: the Premier’s Horn. At the time, the explosion of Tassie’s microbrewing…

Bucket Boys VenueBottleshop

Perhaps the most curious thing about looking at Bucket Boys from the street is that it's hard to tell what they sell. Even once you step inside you don’t see much. On the left is a shelf holding a sparse selection of trinkets: a few magazines and a handful of snacks. On the right is a floor-to-ceiling…

Last Rites Hi-Viz Tassie Tradie Ale Beer

Last Rites Brewing The Puddle Maker Beer

The brewers at Last Rites are no strangers to giving their beers some pretty unusual names, from She’s No Bette Midler to The Big Smelly Doona. Often the inspiration for those beer names stems from day-to-day happenings at the brewery. And, while we hope that wasn’t the case for The Big Smelly Doona,…

4 Hearts Coal Miners Stout Beer

Nowadays, "working in the coal mines" tends to mean operating enormous vehicles and complicated technology. But, back in the day, it meant wearing overalls, wielding a pickaxe and getting a sooty face, counting down the days until you were diagnosed with the black lung. (We all look to Zoolander for…

Moon Dog Cake Hole Beer

Moon Dog Black Lung VII Beer

Last Rites Love Country Tasmanian IPA Beer

Last Rites Dead Man's Revenge Black IPA Beer

The pick of the Last Rites beers when The Crafty Pint first visited just as they were first opening their brewery bar (and the one that appears in *The Great Australian Beer Guide*) is this black IPA that holds little back in its dense-as-anything, 6.5 percent ABV deeply dark depths. It's the hoppiest…

Last Rites She's No Bette Midler Red Ale Beer
