Hotel’s beer has flowed non-stop for 140 years

The Bridge Hotel at Forth in Tasmania celebrated its 140th birthday on the weekend.

Chris and Maureen Bramich have owned the pub for nearly 16 years and were proud to host its 140th birthday celebrations last weekend with a spit roast, live music and giveaways.

The hotel was furnished with local timber, which was made at Don, and it still features an original Blackwood pew
