Cascade to be beverage hub

Carlton & United Breweries is to make all its small-batch beers and ciders at Hobart's Cascade Brewery. The company will invest $10.3 million at the historic site so that production can be lifted by 65 per cent. The project, which includes improvements to the brewery's visitor centre, will generate 20 jobs in the construction phase and a small number of additional brewing jobs. CUB plans to use the brewery, which employs 86 people at present, as a test hub for new beers and ciders for markets in the Asia Pacific. Tasmania's Office of Co-Ordinator General supported the project with a $1 million grant. The caretaker Premier, Will Hodgman, said: “This is very much about securing jobs that could have been lost to our State. There were proposals for other States to have similar things there, but we fought hard to make sure, through the Office of the Co-Ordinator General, that Tasmanian jobs were being protected, but also [accepting] an opportunity to value add at this wonderful brewery. This is a significant investment in something that is classically Tasmanian.”
