Bruny Island Cheese Co. is an artisan cheese maker in southern Tasmania, founded by Nick Haddow. Our cheeses are all made and matured using traditional techniques and are some of the finest artisan cheeses made in Australia.
The cheeses Bruny Island Cheese Co. makes are very much the product of Nick and head cheesemakers Halsey's travels and training throughout the great cheese producing regions of France, Italy, Spain and the UK. They are the cheeses they love to make and eat. Nick and his team are inspired by the artisan cheeses from their travels but they do not seek to copy them. Instead, they makes cheeses that are connected to their environment... cheeses with a distinctly Tasmanian character.
Since early 2016 we have been making beer inspired by Tasmania's people, places and produce. Locally grown ingredients and an eye towards Tasmania's seasons and sensibilities guide us down an unconventioanl path. Our goal is to create intrinsically Tasmanian flavours, and the rare opportunities for collaboration offered by a brewery and cheesery operating right next to each other are an important part of our project.
All our beers are open fermented, bottle conditioned and free from preservatives.
