Moorilla is a winery located in the suburb of Berriedale, 12 km north of the city centre of Hobart, Tasmania. It was established in 1958 by Italian-Australian former textile merchant Claudio Alcorso.
The winery produces a number of cool climate wines, and also produces five beers under the label Moo Brew.
In November 2004 a micro-brewery was installed at Moorilla Estate, under the guidance of head brewer, Owen Johnston. In June 2005 the first keg was sold and went on tap at T42° on Hobart’s waterfront. In 2010 Moo Brew expanded and opened a second brewery in Bridgewater, Tasmania. All brewing is now carried out at this secondary site. Moo Brew produce five core beers (each featuring exclusive artwork by Australian artist John Kelly):
- a Pilsner;
- a German-style Hefeweizen;
- a Belgian Pale Ale;
- an American Pale Ale; and
- an American Dark Ale.
They also prduce a number of seasonal beers, including:
- a Harvest Ale;
- a seasonal Stour; and
- a farmhouse style Saison.
The site also plays host to a number of live music and drama performances on a regular basis, and has a function centre.
