Description

Australia's first brewer was an adventurous man; who founded a brewery that still celebrates his explorer spirit to this day. The first cultivation of hops in Australia occurred thanks to Squire; along with the growth of an Australian success story. An ex-convict; James Squire was never a man to let life simply pass by; and with a little luck, plenty of charm and skill his success as Australia's first brewer is still celebrated and enjoyed by today's generations of beer lovers.

In the times of James Squire; India Pale Ales were brewed to survive the long journey by sea between London and India. This meant they had a higher alcohol content and today a 5.6 per cent alcohol content is still higher than most other beers on the market.  The Stowaway India Pale Ale represents Squire's sense of adventure with a rich and earthy taste, with bitterness that lingers. 

The Chancer Golden Ale, is the perfect summer beer with an orange-golden colour with tropical fruit tones, balanced by a restrained bitterness. Launched in 2004 it's the perfect, refreshing beer to offer cooling refreshment on a hot afternoon.

Sometimes the original is the best and will always be the best; which is exactly how beer lovers describe Nine Tails Amber Ale; the original craft beer launched 15 years ago by James Squire Brewery. The copper colour and sweet caramel-toffee tones are balanced with a nutty finish and citrus aromas that others try to match, but regularly fall short.

One of the unique characteristics of James Squire craft beers is the stories behind the naming. A story of Squires being caught stealing from the colony in order to create his original beer brew is the inspiration for the aptly named 150 Lashes Pale Ale. Squire is said to have received a punishment of 150 lashes and 2 barrels of ale.  With a cloudy appearance; this clean-finish beer offers a fruity aroma with a refreshing taste that is the perfect tribute to Squire.

In celebration of James Squire's complete transformation from convict to District Constable; The Constable Copper Ale offers a stunning deep-golden appearance. The ale balances floran and citrus tones with an earthy,  lingering bitterness for a full-flavoured and refreshing Ale.

Did You Know Beer Makes A Great Valentines Day Gift

Beer: its a beverage that transcends all differences to bring people together at the dinner table, at the bar, and around the world. Over a good brew, the worlds problems seem to melt away long enough for a moment of pleasure to be stolen. But do you know your beer? Each day there seem to be new creations joining old favourites on bar taps all over the world.

Everything But Flowers is proud to offer many great gift hampers with a wide variety of wonderful beer. They make wonderful Valentines Day gifts for the beer-loving man or woman in your life. But before you choose your boozy Valentines Day gifts, join us for an overview of beer basics.

How many types of beer are there, really?

Well thats a bit complicated. Beer types are generally separated into two groups: ales and lagers. An ale is generally brewed with top-fermenting yeast. But what does that mean? Top-fermenting yeast is a yeast thats highly tolerant of alcohol, which means that it can produce beer higher in alcohol than bottom-fermenting yeast. Top-fermenting yeast, as you might imagine, rises to the top of the beer before sinking again.

A lager, as you may have guessed, is generally brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast. Bottom-fermenting yeast sinks to the bottom of the beer. It is not as tolerant of alcohol, but it does produce a higher sugar content and creates a beer with a more mellow flavour profile.

What beer types are considered ales?

Youll find our James Squire Craft Beer Gift Hamper contains great ales, making it one of our many wonderful Valentines Day gifts for beer-lovers. Many ales have ale in their name, like Indian Pale Ale, Belgian Ale, and Brown Ale. But within the group, youll find many dark beers and a variety of delicious brews.

Arent sure what your significant other prefers? If your loved one loves full-bodied beer, look no further for Valentines Day gifts, because you could hardly find anything better than our James Squire Craft Beer Gift Hamper!

What beer types are considered lagers?

As we said before, lagers are generally more mellow than ale. There are Pale Lagers, Bocks, and Dark Lagers, but theyre distinctly different from Pale Ales and darker ale brews. Lagers, especially Bocks, tend to be more malty than they are hoppy. So for the man or woman who prefers a malty beer, looks for lagers to give as Valentines Day gifts.

Are there beer styles that arent lagers or ales?

There are styles of beer that dont quite fall into the lager or ale categories. These are typically either specialty and experimental beer. They often include seasonal beer and barley wines. Amber beer, unlike speciality beer, have the distinct ability to be an ale, a lager, or neither.

So, you see; you don't have to appreciate beer as much as James Squire did; but knowing it's the perfect drink for mates to enjoy together, or couples to enjoy together, means you know already that beer hampers make the perfect Valentine's Day gifts.
