On tap, The Cock and Bull has a couple of James Squires, Little Creatures (Quiet American is still on tap) and a few local brews......(Moo Brew Pilsener when really fresh is a part of why I moved down here...And also White Rabbit White and Dark....) and decent food....also Al, the guy who runs the place truly understands the gentle art of bar keeping. Down the road Irish Murphy's has an AHB member's brews on tap (Morrison's Brewery) which are very good and also a "guest" tap that changes each month.....Got a pint of Schofferhoffer a few weeks back. Crown Cellars on Bathurst st. (Again , round the corner from the Cock nd Bull) have the best range in town when it comes to bottle shops. Drinking an Emmerson's Porter from there right now. The TRC hotel bottle shop always seems to have Innis & Gunn in stock.

And Seven Sheds brewery is a short drive (45ish... minutes) from Launceston.......the Brewer's Reserve batches they have at the moment are worth the money.

While your here make sure you try a few of the local brews Morrisons and Van Dieman are great and the current seasonal from Van Dieman Hedgerow is spectacular. Also if you dont have time to drive up to Railton I'm told 7 Sheds have a stall at the Launceston harvest market on each Saturday morning at the Cimitere street carpark.
As jlm said the Cock and Bull is a great pub and Crown cellers is the best bottle shop around.

Unfortunately we only drove past it due to being in a hurry but maybe an hour out of Launceston there's a town called Weldborough which looks gorgeous. There's a pub there called the Wedlborough Hotel: http://www.hotel.weldborough.com.au/

If you are driving and have a bit of time (possibly an overnight stay if you want to sample everything), it might be worth checking out.

Not a personal recommendation as I've not been there but certainly piqued my interest.
