    Our History

    Formed by the amalgamation of some of Australia and New Zealand’s most celebrated food and beverage companies, Lion has a rich local heritage.


    James Squire, convicted highway robber and publican, produces the first commercial ale and becomes Australia's first brewer. His legacy now lives on through Lion Nathan's Malt Shovel Brewery, which adopts the James Squire name for its unique range of handcrafted beers.
