Almost 230 years ago, the first fleet arrived at Sydney Cove and a convict named James Squire stepped ashore in chains. He didn’t know it then, but this chicken-stealing highwayman had been presented with a remarkable opportunity. A charmer, a swindler and a cunning rogue, James would go on to become the father of Australian brewing – and a bona fide legend.
The Squire’s Landing is Australia’s newest James Squire Brewhouse. Developed in collaboration with renowned hospitality group, Mantle Group Hospitality, The Squire’s Landing tells the legend of James Squire; a convict on the First Fleet but perhaps more importantly, Australia’s first brewer.
The venue is a two story restaurant and brewhouse with a freestanding, fully glazed microbrewery overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. It is here that The Squire’s Landing’s Head Brewer crafts exclusive small batch brews onsite, whilst working collaboratively with Malt Shovel Brewery to deliver outstanding James Squire Limited Releases and nine core range beers and cider.
