James Squire

James Squire fought his way to freedom, taking plenty of risks and finally breaking the shackles of his seven year sentence to set up Australia’s first brewery. Just a year after his arrival in Port Jackson, Squire was hauled before the magistrate charged with stealing ‘medicines’ from the hospital stores where he was working. Before you judge his crime too harshly, these medicines were a pound of pepper and horehound – a herb that imitates the tangy flavour of hops. Though James claimed the stolen herb was for his pregnant girlfriend, he later revealed that he had been brewing beer since arriving in Australia. A crime for the greater good then, we’d even call it a selfless act.James’ beer was already proving popular with the British officers and no doubt his cunning and charm resulted in a relatively lenient subsequent sentence. Rather than facing execution, he was fined five pounds and sentenced to receive 300 lashes: ‘One hundred and fifty now, and the remainder when able to bear it’, according to the order of 14 November, 1789. The power of a well-crafted beer cannot be underestimated.

In 1805, James successfully grew the first Australian hop plants. The following summer, he attended Government House with two vines of hops. Governor King was so impressed with their flavour and quality, he ordered that a ‘cow be given to Mr Squire from the government herd’. More significantly, this meant James Squire could officially be called Australia’s first – and finest – brewer.
