Those James Squire brew bar rumours were true

The James Squire murmurs around Brisbane can now cease after today’s media release…


For Immediate Release

21 October 2013

James Squire has revealed Brisbane is the next city to open a newly-designed brew bar that showcases the flavoursome beers, which carry the name of Australia’s first brewer in a truly unique setting.

The bespoke venue developed in partnership with Mantle Group is due to open in early 2014. Ideally located within Brisbane’s cultural precinct in Southbank, the brew bar will carry the full range of James Squire craft beers and seasonal brews on tap, paired with an inspired food menu.

Inspired by the character of James Squire and the times in which he lived, the venue will feature raw materials to evoke a sense of history and storytelling. Amber glass, iron and repurposed wood will combine as features in an otherwise modern setting.

Brett Grebert, Craft Director at Lion said: “We are really excited about the new Queensland addition to the five James Squire Brew Bars around the country. It’s testament to the popularity of the unique environment and experience that the Brew Bars offer as to why we are expanding the family of venues.”

Chairman of Mantle Group, Godfrey Mantle said: “The amazing site at Grey Street lends itself to all the components we were looking for – size, open fit out, rawness and a perfect location. It also provides a blank canvas to create a venue that Australia’s first commercial brewer, James Squire, himself would stop and have a drink in.”

Dr. Chuck Hahn, James Squire Master Brewer and founder of the Malt Shovel Brewery, says James Squire brew bars are a place of discovery and charm: “James Squire was an extremely interesting individual – a charming rouge, jack of all trades, lover of women and a man of many tastes and talents. With each of the venues we open, we hope to share his quirky personality and the many stories that come of his life along with our James Squire range of beers” said Dr Hahn.

Brisbane’s James Squire brew bar will join established James Squire venues across Australia including The Curious Squire (Adelaide), The Generous Squire (Perth), The Squires Bounty (Hobart), James Squire Brewhouse (Melbourne) and The Squire’s Maiden (Newcastle).
