Australia's first brewer was an adventurous man; who founded a brewery that still celebrates his explorer spirit to this day. The first cultivation of hops in Australia occurred thanks to Squire; along with the growth of an Australian success story. An ex-convict; James Squire was never a man to let life simply pass by; and with a little luck, plenty of charm and skill his success as Australia's first brewer is still celebrated and enjoyed by today's generations of beer lovers.

In the times of James Squire; India Pale Ales were brewed to survive the long journey by sea between London and India. This meant they had a higher alcohol content and today a 5.6 per cent alcohol content is still higher than most other beers on the market.  

One of the unique characteristics of James Squire craft beers is the stories behind the naming. A story of Squires being caught stealing from the colony in order to create his original beer brew is the inspiration for the aptly named 150 Lashes Pale Ale. Squire is said to have received a punishment of 150 lashes and 2 barrels of ale.  With a cloudy appearance; this clean-finish beer offers a fruity aroma with a refreshing taste that is the perfect tribute to Squire.
