Moo Brew

Moo Brew is an urbane confluence of art, style, great beers and downright confusing contradictions.

The original brewery was built on the lush grounds of the Moorilla winery on the banks of the River Derwent – now the site of MONA (The Museum of Old and New Art).  In 2010, a new brewery was built at Bridgewater, ten minutes north of the hatchling site. The architecturally-designed building houses a modern brewing facility, previously described as the best-appointed microbrewery in Australia. Established in 2005, Moo Brew is now the state’s largest locally-owned brewery. The Moo Brew labels display the works of Australian artist John Kelly. 

Backed by this blending of beer and art, Moo Brew's brewers continue to architect a beer style and brand which purposefully seeks out authentic connections with the palettes of all those who appreciate the art of fine craft beer.

Mt Direction Olives

Specialists in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

In 1999 in the Tippogoree Hills of the Tamar Valley, Sean and Chrissie Ahern planted 2000 olive trees. About 1400 Frantoio [a Tuscan variety] and 600 Manzanillo [a Spanish variety] now form the basis for mount Direction's olive oil production. Early harvest produces a robust Frantoio and a more mellow, buttery Manzanillo but as harvest progresses both oils develop more fruity characteristics .These late season oils lend themselves to flavouring. Our garlic and chilli infused oils are among our most popular whilst our Lime Agrumato is mostly presold to last years customers. Oil production takes place at our own mill. Our vertically integrated company [ from paddock to package] allows us to make the claim: "from tree to tank in three hours".

Mures Fish Centre

Jill & George Mure opened Tasmania's first licensed seafood restaurant, Mures Fish House, in 1973 in Hobart. When they struggled to source quality, fresh, local seafood, George went fishing.

More than 40 years on, now owned by Will & Judy Mure, Mures remains a favourite of locals and visitors alike, located in Hobart's working fishing port at Victoria Dock.

Downstairs is Lower Deck where you can enjoy a wide variety of seafood from the licensed Bistro, including Mures' own line caught blue eye trevalla, as you take in the sights and sounds of the waterfront.

Check out the vast array of Australian seafood at the Fishmongers including rock lobster, salmon, scallops and mussels, where you can order freshly shucked Tasmanian oysters from the Oyster Bar. Finish off with a local roasted coffee or an ice cream from the Cafe.

Upstairs is Upper Deck for a more sassier affair with expansive dockside views and a la carte dishes, often changing daily with the freshest catch, featuring the finest seafood and very best local produce. Perfectly complement your meal with their award-winning exclusively Tasmanian wine list.

Tetsuya’s tops nation again

Tetsuya’s, the Sydney restaurant owned by Tasmania's Brand Ambassador, Tetsuya Wakuda, AO, has been named 2017 Restaurant of the Year at the National Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence in Melbourne. It was the fourth time the Japanese-born Australian master chef has taken the award's top gong. He said: “I’m very grateful, of course - it’s a real privilege, from the bottom of my heart. But it’s not me. It’s my staff. I congratulate my staff. The team won this, not me.” Restaurant critic Simon Thomsen said: “Tetsuya is the epitome of the Japanese concept of takumi - craftsmanship. He’s always stayed true to his standards; his Japanese sense of excellence.” Tetsuya has remained at the pinnacle of his profession for 25 years, earning comparisons with tennis great Roger Federer. His Singapore restaurant, Waku Ghin, was awarded two stars in the 2017 Michelin Guide, Singapore, making him the first Australian chef to have two Michelin stars. "There's no such thing as perfection," the great chef said. “But we try to be close.”

Riesling stars in Halliday list

Ten of Australia's top 100 wines are Tasmanian, according to guru James Halliday, and one of the stars of his 2017 listing was a Devil's Corner 2016 Riesling awarded 97 points despite being in an under-$20 category. Brown Brothers Chief Executive, Ross Brown, said: “We bought our Tasmanian vineyards and wineries in 2010 because we ... wanted to have access to cool-climate-grown grapes and wine varieties such as pinot noir, riesling and pinot grigio that grow so well in Tasmania. We have found Brand Tasmania to be far stronger than we had anticipated. People are now looking for lively and refreshing wines and this exceptional Devil’s Corner 2016 Riesling superbly personifies the crisp minerality and the clean, green image that Tasmania is so known for.” Earlier, Tasmania winery Heemskerk won the James Halliday Trophy for Best Pinot Noir at the 2017 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards for its 2016 vintage. The Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy for Best Young Red Wine was awarded to Turkey Flat Vineyards in the Barossa Valley for its 2016 Grenache, the first time a wine of that variety has taken out the award.

Boag lionises Tassie water

Pioneer Tasmanian brand-builder James Boag & Sons has launched a new multi-channel advertising campaign using the State's quality water as its central theme. Promoting James Boag Premium beer, the Born of Tasmanian Waters campaign devised by the Host/Havas agency, sets out to show that some of life's most extraordinary and fantastic components are found in Tasmania, with pure water as their common element. Without it, they wouldn't exist. A spokesman for Lion, owner of the Launceston Brewery, said: "James Boag has been brewing its beers continuously and exclusively in Tasmania since 1888, and it's our Tasmanian provenance that makes our beers truly special and unique among other premium beers. Of all the natural riches Tasmania offers, its pure water is the most special — so many remarkable and renowned things are born of it — and we are excited about our new campaign that highlights the quality of the water that goes into our beers". The campaign rolled out nationally in time for James Boag Premium's major sponsorship of the Melbourne Cup racing carnival.

Spanish glory for local cider

Willie Smith's is basking in the glory of its inaugural international award. The Huon Valley business's limited-edition Somerset Redstreak Single Varietal cider won its class at the Spanish Cider Awards in November. The competition, in Hernani, near San Sebastian, was judged by an international committee of renowned cider tasters from the United States, Britain, Germany, France and Italy. Willie Smith's co-owner Sam Reid said: "It’s a massive thrill to be selected as Best Traditional English Cider at a European awards competition. In Australia we’ve got a bit of a tradition at beating the English at their own game and, so, it’s nice to be able to do this in cider now too!" Willie Smith's was the only Australian product to collect a trophy at the event.

'Tazzy' pies a hit in Bonn

When Australian visitors to Bonn, Germany, feel a craving for a hot meat pie, help is at hand: Tasmanian Gareth Patterson's Tazzy Food Truck is doing a roaring trade in meat pies and other treats from Down Under. "We offer the best out of Australia," Mr Patterson, formerly of Hobart, said. "Try our handmade gourmet pies and be delighted. Fresh baked, delicious and hot ... smash one down! Fair Dinkum good!" Former Australian Deputy Prime Minister, Tim Fischer, took up the invitation in November. “It was uplifting and energising to enjoy great Tazzy Food on the left bank of the Rhine in Bonn,” Mr Fischer said. The van is one of several offering locals and visitors lunch, dinner, drinks and coffee options on the former West German capital's busy Kennedyallee. There was a queue at the Tazzy Food Truck at the time of Mr Fischer's visit. “As a former Trade Minister, I was delighted to indulge and to spread the word about Tasmania and Australia — something I have been doing since 1996 when I had to eat a Tasmanian oyster in Tokyo at 6am at a key fish market.” Mr Fischer was in Bonn in his new role as Chairman of Crop Trust, an international organisation dedicated to safeguarding the world's crop biodiversity.

His signature wine label and wine centre ... is among the finest wineries in Australia and has established a truly iconic wine experience on the doorstep to Launceston. Joe’s impact on the tourism industry in Launceston is unrivalled.” Josef Chromy Wines also won a gold medal in the awards' Tourism Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries category.

Insect farmer's flavour focus

Louise Morris, a Tasmanian insect farmer, believes insects can play an important role in feeding a growing global population but cautions about how insect protein is produced. "What they eat impacts so much on how much greenhouse gas impact, how much water went into that," Ms Morris told the ABC. "If you're essentially feeding them chicken food … you're not really making a huge impact [on the environment]." Ms Morris, who co-founded the Insect Protein Association of Australia, farms crickets, mealworms and Queensland wood cockroaches in northern Tasmania. She uses vegetable waste from local farms to feed her insects and said feeding insects different vegetables can affect their taste. "We're really focused with a few restaurants who are wanting to work with our insects … on bespoke insect flavours," she said. "It's creating a whole new income stream, employment opportunities and a product which really is 'brand Tasmania', because we are closed-looping it." According to some research about 80 per cent of the world's people consume insects as part of their regular diet. Ms Morris aims to have her insects on Tasmanian dinner plates in 2018.
