Tasmania to the rest of Australia is the geeky kid at school who follows the bigger, cooler kids around, but in this case the geeky kid does have beer – good for him. Yes, Tasmania does brew some good beers, and the rest of Australia is happy about that too. They also do ciders. And despite the cultural stereotypes to the contrary, your average Australian does appreciate a boutique beer or two if the occasion warrants it, which in this case it does – there are more than 100 boutique and local brewery beers to taste, and that's before you add the big breweries and the international visiting beers. All on Hobart's harbour, fuelled on fresh fish and chips.

If you're worried about all those empty calories remember your dancing shoes and show your appreciation for the live music acts as well.
