Pirate Life Brewing was launched in March 2015 by head brewers Jack Cameron, Jared (Red) Proudfoot, with Jack’s dad, Michael Cameron, as CEO. Jack explains that the Pirate Life name and brand is less about eye-patches and cutlasses and more a state of mind. “We want to make beer with bravado and unbridled passion,” he said. “Pirate Life means carefree and relaxed but uncompromising about quality and flavour.” Now known for their bold, hoppy, and quality brews, they’ve stayed true to their name and their hard work has paid off – in just 2 years they have built a brand that is highly regarded in the craft beer world, and stocked across the country in bars, restaurants and bottle shops. Pirate Life is also expanding overseas, exporting to New Zealand, the UK, and Hong Kong.
