if you feel like trading while in Sydney. Hit me up. Or can do a bottle share as well.
Do suggest a sweater for Sydney. Currently 18 here and nights get down to 7-8 in the city. Insulation is terrible here. Always cold in the house.


Iíll be backpacking for 5 weeks, so donít think Iíll have any room o bring beers :(
Wouldnít mind sharing some bottles when Iím in Sydney or just meeting up at some brew pub or beer bar.
Seems Saturday 13th of July is the only day that Iím busy so far, 10th to 12 th and 14th to 17th Iíll be beer hunting around the city.

Have heard about the cold, so planning to bring some clothes to keep me warm as well, thanks for the heads up!

Itís quite possible. I went there http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/empty/sydney/james-squire-brewhouse/763.htm and found it rebranded but not yet brewing. Looking at notes, I had a Fat Jackís Stout there, but apparently never got around to adding it.

Bells Hotel in south Melbourne doesnít brew any longer, edited the place to a bar, guessing the brewey should be set to retired?

James Squire Brewhouse @ Waterfront City in Melbourne no longer brew at that site, only a JS tap room with some extra macro taps on.

Yep Bells should definitely be retired.

They never actually brewed at the JS Brewhouse. They used to get beer from the one in the city (probably rebadged) but now they donít even have that. It actually shut down completely for a while, so there was probably a change of ownership or something.
