Year Round Brews

Year round brews, always on tap.

One Fifty Lashes
Pale Ale

Australia’s first batch of beer earned its brewer 300 lashes, 150 now and 150 when he could bear it. Thankfully for us, James Squire was a far better brewer than he was a thief.

Experience thirst-quenching redemption in this clean-finishing pale ale. Malted wheat adds refreshing character, while the fruity infusion makes for an enticing aroma with hints of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus.

THE SWINDLER
TROPICAL ALE

On earning his freedom in 1795, James and his fellow freed-convicts were awarded 30 acres of NSW crown land. James cunningly rounded up those less daring souls and purchased their grants for a shilling, swindling some 970 acres on which he grew his hops and fortune.

Swindle yourself a moment to savour this refreshing dry hopped summer ale. Light straw in colour with a billowy head and bursting with tropical notes of pear and watermelon, The Swindler is the perfect summer side-kick.

THE CHANCER
GOLDEN ALE

Never one to let a ball and chain hold him back, ex-convict James Squire seized every opportunity his emancipation offered. His unique blend of charm, skill and luck ultimately rewarded him with an enviable fortune as Australia’s first brewer.

Arguably the best looking of the James Squire craft beer range, the highly-drinkable The Chancer is noted for its distinctive orange-golden colour, unique tropical fruit aroma, restrained bitterness and dry finish.

ORCHARD CRUSH
APPLE CIDER

As Australia’s first brewer, James Squire grew many of the ingredients found in his first batches of brew himself. Having had an orchard on his land, it wouldn’t be surprising if he experimented with cider in his day.

Orchard Crush is a traditional cloudy cider with a fragrant, fresh aroma, a broad, clean palate and a crisp finish, making for a most refreshing choice.
