A Visit to Two Metre Tall Brewery

Click on images for full size.

Dani & Ant, Katie & I tripped out past New Norfolk on the banks of the Derwent today on a real ale pilgramage to Jane & Ashley Huntington's Brewery, Two Metre Tall. I first ran into 2MT at the Hobart Beer Festival in 2007, and we've been trying to get out to their HQ ever since, but it took CAMRA loyallists' Dani & Ant's visit to get us in the Mercedes and steam out to Plenty.

It's a compact operation, but pumps out some amazing product, from the Derwent Clear Ale, to the (Beautiful) Cleansing Ale, and the Oyster Stout that they contract brew for the Barilla restauarant near the airport (it's made with real oysters, shell n all!).

Jane & Ashley are most hospitable folk, and we totally recommend that you give them a dial and go visit. Otherwise, their product is on tap in a few pubs and restaurants around the state.

I don't know if the inhabitants of the Hayes Jail Farm down the road are lucky enough to get a barrel here and there though.

Top marks all round!
