Created in a former ice cream factory using converted dairy machinery, you could be forgiven for expecting a milky concoction, but Kick Snare Brewing is all about hand-crafted beer.
Founder Andrew Swift brews at South Launceston part time, splitting time in his business with work as a high school science teacher.
"I do find that this experience brought a new perspective and a different angle to my teaching. I think the school and my students have certainly benefited from my growth," he said.
Scouring eBay and Gumtree for vessels of the right dimensions, Mr Swift bought equipment from farms, including dairies and a vineyard and then repurposed it for brewing.
"It's traditional beer, simple, produced with some pretty ugly gear that I've built myself," he said.

Kick Snare started about four years ago after Mr Swift decided to take his home brewing further, and commercial demand means he is looking to expand again.
"For some time now I've really needed to look at expanding capacity, which is a really good problem," Mr Swift said.
"In the near future we'll look to get a few more fermenters in and to increase the capacity to supply Launceston and the rest of the state," he said.
While Kick Snare has tested the water on mainland Australia with some pop-up events, Mr Swift said he would need a distributor to expand to the point, which is an big cost for a part-time operation.
"The goal is to remain uber local and keep things Launceston."
While considering expansion to boost brewing capacity, Mr Swift said he had toyed with the idea of a "brew pub" in Launceston, but more research was needed around location, infrastructure and council approval first.
"We're nowhere near even scratching the capacity of other brewers in town. I think the public is very open to it."
