John Boston Pale Ale beer

Let’s be clear: the Lost At E Minor office is quite partial to a case of two of cleansing ales. We favour brews that have real taste and spirit. So there was delight all-round when we were introduced to a new Australian Lager and Pale Ale: John Boston.

John Boston’s recently launched range of beers pays tribute to the founding father of beer in Sydney — John Boston himself, a brewer who made the first beer from maize in 1796. Although it offered some relief to a rum-fuelled colony, Boston took up trading and sailed to Tonga to trade with the Tongan locals at a banquet. But if reports are to be believed, he himself ended up as the main course.

We’re big fans of the Boston Mill’s Pale Ale created in his name, a well-refined pale with a nice taste of hops.

Recorded a cool, fun, funny, or inspiring video (or even better, all of the above!) that you'd love to have more people see? Well, we'd like to see it. And if we dig it, we'll turn it into a Found At E Minor (FAEM) video for our Facebook audience to enjoy. Check out this awesome recent example and submit your videos here!
