Jack Viney

Head Brewer, Moo Brew

Jack Viney is the Head Brewer at Moo Brew in Hobart, Tasmania. After graduating from the University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Law, Jack spent time living and working in Canada. It was there that Jack first discovered his love for craft beer. Jack joined Moo Brew—owned by David Walsh, founder of the Museum of Old and New Art—in 2014 on his return to Tasmania. In the years that followed, Jack continued to hone his skills, both at work and via his studies with the Institute of Brewing and Distilling in the UK. Jack was appointed to Head Brewer of Moo Brew in June 2020. As Head Brewer of Tasmania’s largest craft brewery, Jack is responsible for overseeing all elements of the brewery’s production, from the core line up to new products and Moo Brew’s limited release range. Jack is deeply committed to the Moo Brew ethos of quality and consistency and both his and the brewery’s Tasmanian roots. When he’s not at the Brewery overseeing Moo Brew’s award winning beers he can be often found at his family shack on Bruny Island enjoying one of his favourite Moo Brew Dark Ales.

A Seat at the Table
Beaker Street Festival’s pay-it-forward initiative, A Seat at the Table, helps make our science and art offerings accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. Ticket buyers have the option to donate towards the cost of a stranger’s ticket. You won’t know who you’ve helped, but your donation will go directly to allowing someone else to access this great event.

Need a seat at the table? Email: [email protected] with your name, email address, post code, your age (if you don’t mind – it helps us gather data), which event you’re interested in, and whether you would like one or two tickets. Your information will never be shared or made public. If we can offer you a seat, we’ll notify you by email within a week of the event.
