James Boags & Sons - Beer!
Interesting to note that this Beer is made here in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia since 1881 not far from the city centre.
James Boag 1 the elder (1822-1890) was born in Paisley, Renfrewshire Scottland and in 1853 he with his wife, Janet, and their four children immigrated to Australia. After three months in the Victorian goldfields, they came to Tasmania.
He worked at several local breweries before entering into partnership with his son James Boag II to run Esk Brewery. The brewery later became what is now known as Boag's Brewery.
The last James Boag died in 1976. The company is not now family owned.
In 2010 J. Boag and Son employed over 150 people and produced over
76,000,000 litres (17,000,000 imp gal; 20,000,000 US gal) of beer
annually. (approximately) They make many types of beer from the pure waters of Tasmania.
