About Seven Sheds Brewery

Established by Willie Simpson and Catherine Stark in 2008, Seven Sheds has evolved from offering a single beer – Kentish Ale - to having five  brews available all-year-round, plus regular seasonals and a range of single-batch “brewers reserve” beers that provide examples of diverse beer styles from around the world.

Seven Sheds beers are handcrafted in an alehouse designed around traditional brewing methods.  Flagship Kentish Ale typifies the robust, flavoursome beers that form the backbone of the Seven Sheds range. A great match for bratwurst sausages or a rabbit pie, Kentish Ale is the most popular Seven Sheds brew and can be enjoyed at select tap locations including Cradle Mountain Hotel, Mole Creek Hotel (where it’s sold as Tassie Tiger Ale) and Stanely Hotel as well as Hobart’s Lark Distillery Cafe.

Other regular brews include Willie Warmer, a spiced dark ale; the Belgian-style Elephants Trunk which at 7% is one to enjoy while strapped to your favourite armchair; and the raspberry wheat beer Razzamatazz, which is a great thirst quencher on a hot day.  Winter seasonal Stark Raven is a full-bodied oatmeal stout and Paradise Pale, now a part of the permanent lineup, is a refreshing brew designed to wash down seafood, salads and other summer fare.  The Seven Sheds Brewers Reserve range includes brews such as Royal Willie (11.6%), St Ella IPA and Peru-inspired chocolate and quinoa Black Inca (6.8%) which are only available in 500ml bottles.

Seven Sheds beers are available by the glass at Tasmanian events throughout the year including Launceston’s Festivale, Devonport’s Taste the Harvest, Sheffield’s Taste of the North West, Wynyard’s Bloomin’ Tulips, Deloraine’s Tasmanian Craft Fair, and Hobart’s Taste of Tasmania Festival, plus the Seven Sheds Hop Harvest (March) and Oktoberfest on-site in Railton.

Railton is a great place to stop and stretch your legs with level, easy walking. Visitors can check out the cafes, gift shops and topiary, a stroll along the Tasmanian Trail to contemplate the edicts in Sykes Sanctuary reserve or take the kids up to Goliath Park to kick a footie or play on the swings.  Grab a Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail map for other tasty treats ranging from chocolate to salmon and ginseng, raspberries, apples, honeys, cherries, cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables, pinot noir and cider, jams and relish.  Check out for more information about food; and for local visitor information and accommodation options.

Label and memorabilia collectors

Since opening in 2008 Seven Sheds has had an ever growing number of label and memorabilia collectors asking for Seven Sheds items.

We appreciate that some collectors have come to our cellar door and purchased beer or other items when making their request.  More often than not, however, these requests have come with an expectation that we will distribute collectible items free of charge to locations all over the world. 

Once one collector has hold of a new label, coaster, barblade or other item, others quickly want to have it too.

Some breweries have big marketing budgets and don’t mind allocating staff time, stock and distribution costs to send out each new label, coaster, or bottle opener they produce to collectors or clubs.

Seven Sheds is a very small enterprise and doesn’t have the resources to accommodate these requests.  As these demands are increasing over time we have decided that we will not distribute collectibles such as beer labels and coasters.  Other items such as t-shirts, hats and bottle openers are sometimes available for sale at the Seven Sheds cellar door and via

We respectfully ask that memorabilia collectors refrain from approaching Seven Sheds staff, contractors, graphic designers and associated businesses and individuals in pursuit of labels, coasters and other memorabilia.
