HOW WE MAKE OUR ALES
Our colonial ales are produced according to the Colonial Laws under which a Brewer’s License was, once upon a time, granted. Historically, colonial ale consisted of the four ingredients the British Empire recognized for ale. These were: Malt, Hops, Water and Yeast. According to law, these ingredients had to be grown locally. Adhering to these rules, Captain Bligh’s uses only locally grown Tasmanian produce and uses recipes reminiscent of the era.
WHAT'S AVAILABLE YEARLY
HIPA (Hobart India Pale Ale)
Six Guinea (Pale Ale)

Lager Stout (Tasmania’s own lager)
We also have seasonal releases for each time of the year to reflect our diverse weather, and a series of ‘one off’ releases to reflect our need to innovate.
Our beer names have been carefully chosen to reflect both a bygone era and the methods used to produce the superb, rich flavours.
