New James Squire Brewhouse breathes life into old Frankston watering hole
The James Squire and Malt Shovel Brewery range of beers will be available on tap, as well as limited edition brews including the newly released Cabin Fever, Interceptor Black IPA, Karni Kolsch, Mid River and Mint Heist.
The venue was first licensed in 1884 as the Prince of Wales and subsequently rebuilt several times, known throughout the 1970s and ‘80s as the Vines Hotel. The new refurbishment has made the most of the views of Port Phillip Bay.
Head chef Dale Payne is promising modern pub food done well with a nod to the sourcing of locally produced ingredients from the Mornington Peninsula.
Operated by the Australian Leisure and Hospitality Group, the new hotel is looking to hire and train over 50 staff from the local area with recruitment well underway.
