Craft beer is the fastest growing segment in the Australian beer market with drinkers increasingly open to experimenting with exciting new beer styles.Much of the growth in craft has been driven by Lion through James Squire, the leading craft beer trademark in Australia. With the addition of Little Creatures, White Rabbit, Kosciuszko, Mad Brewers and Knappstein, Lion looks forward to a bright future in craft.
Named after Australia’s first brewer, James Squire offers drinkers a world full of flavour. James Squire lived life to the fullest in his journey from scoundrel to respectable beer pioneer. Today, well over 150 years later, the James Squire craft beer range offers the same dedication to quality and desire to pioneer the best of flavours.
Little Creatures Brewing was born out of the love of great beer shared by a few good mates. In particular, it was a hop driven pale ale they tasted in the north west of the U.S that really captured their hearts and gave rise to this little brewery that began on the water’s edge in Fremantle.
White Rabbit takes a dash of the wondrous and a touch of the curious to create a unique range of classic, flavoursome ales. A skilful balance of old-world techniques sprinkled with new world thinking enables us to brew beer that reaches beyond the conventional. Searching high and low for ingredients of spellbinding quality, our ales exhibit both complex flavours and wonderful drinkability.
