A popular Tasmanian beer is getting a permanent return.

After a limited release of Boag's St George was released in April, Tasmanian drinkers were able to enjoy the product through to summer.

However, with the amount of community support for the beverage, Boag's has decided to make it a permanent come-back.

James Boag sales manager Brad Upton said he was pleased to make the announcement.

"St George fans welcomed back the beer, so much so that stocks have already been exhausted," he said.

"We've been blown away. We always knew it was a beer ahead of its time and the drinkers of Tasmania have truly shown that."

"We are also excited to announce that after a successful trial of the product on tap in some pubs around Tasmania, the brand will be made available on tap across the state. If you haven't tried it off tap yet then find a local pub with it and give it a try."

Despite calls for St George to be made available across the country, Mr Upton said the main focus was to ensure supply was kept up to for Tasmanian drinkers.

The beer is a full-strength premium beer with an ABV of 4.2 per cent.

St George will be available in stubbies and cartons from October 15 at independant bottle shops, Nine Eleven bottle shops, selected pubs, clubs, and bars, and the Boag's Beer Lovers Centre.
