James Squire opens world’s most scenic microbrewery

28 May, 2018 by Andy Young

The Squire’s Landing has officially opened at Circular Quay’s Overseas Passenger Terminal.

Boasting panoramic views of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, it could just be the world’s most scenic microbrewery location.


The Squire’s Landing is a partnership between Mantle Group Hospitality and Lion, housing a two-storey restaurant and a freestanding, fully-glazed and architecturally designed microbrewery.

The venue’s head brewer, Peter Merrington, will be permanently based onsite crafting exclusive small-batch brews, and delivering James Squire Limited Releases and its nine core range beers and ciders.

“We’ll have some of the freshest beer being served in Sydney and a range exclusive to The Squire’s Landing,” said Merrington. “We’ll also be able to honour the legend that is James Squire, at the same location where he first set foot on Australian soil almost 230 years ago.”

Speaking at the launch, Lion’s Managing Director, James Brindley, said: “This is a special place, Lion couldn’t be happier to have a place like this, in this incredible location.”

The Squire’s Landing is the seventh James Squire Brewhouse in Australia – complementing existing Brewhouses in Brisbane, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
