Hobart is ridiculously picturesque. From the mountain to the river there are thousands of beautiful angles and views waiting for our gaze. But have you ever wondered just why Hobart’s grid street pattern is just a little off? Or noticed how many architectural styles are crammed into a relatively small space? Seen a convict arrow carved into the side of a building?

A Pint of History is teaming up with Open House Hobart to bring you an evening of architectural curios as we enjoy an armchair tour of Hobart’s built history with three leading experts.

About A Pint of History

History is full of drinking. Be it alcoholic or non-, made from fruit, grain, spuds or sugar. In sorrow or celebration, glasses have been raised, from battlefields to children’s parties.

We’re continuing the tradition, bringing tales of old to a pub near you. A different topic every month, with some of Hobart’s leading historians guiding you through the quirky, entertaining and downright confusing of the past.

We meet at Shambles Brewery, where you’ll find great pints, delicious food and fascinating conversations. Come and grab a bite to eat, and order a pint of history on the side!
