The life of a swindler, a baker, a brewer, a butcher, a constable and a dirty rotten scoundrel – this is the story of a life well lived.
A pillar of his community in life and a brewing legend in death, meet James Squire. With seven professions, 11 children and a brewing legacy that’s lasted 150 years, James’ life makes for one great story. One that's best told with food and beer of course.
Over a five course tasting menu, celebrate the life, times and contributions of James Squire. With a special focus on local Melbourne producers and native ingredients, journey through his life with food… and beer.
