"From the Vat to the Tap, one can’t get much fresher beer than that."
The Kosciuszko brewhouse, including a copper-clad mash tun/lauter and brew kettle, is located in public view immediately adjacent to the main hotel entrance. Stop by for a cold Kosci Pale Ale with Licencee Cameron or assistant brewers, Chuck & Rich.
Ask our staff to take you for a tour to see the wonderfully brewed Pale Ale. This 600 litre microbrewery was started up by brewer Chuck Hahn in April 2009 as one of his latest brewing ventures after the Hahn Brewery in 1988 and the Malt Shovel brewery in 1998.
Our original Kosciuszko Pale is a 4.5% alcohol, slightly cloudy ale that challenges the limits of the traditional Australian Pale Ale. Crafted from a blend of Pale & Munich malts, and brewed using Tasmanian grown Galaxy hops our pale ale delivers a pleasant maltiness with a refreshing fruity hop finish.
Brewed for enjoyment after a hard day of skiing, hiking, fishing or just relaxing in the mountains, it’s an ale that is always in season. Other special and limited release brews are in the planning. Though Chuck has been living in Sydney for the past twenty years he developed his love for fine beers and skiing from his early years in Colorado. Little wonder Chuck is now on top of the worldproducing fine ales in the Snowy Mountains.

"Steak was cooked to perfection. I am super picky with steak and asked for a med/well done and that’s exactly how it came out. The staff were friendly as well. Thank you for a lovely dinner and atmosphere :)"
