Foster’s Group Limited Company History

The Foster's Lager was established by Jacob Beringer in 1876. In 1888, Mildara Winery was established. Carlton and United Breweries also known as CUB was formed by the merging of Carlton Brewery, Foster Brewing Company and other four companies. In 1913, they became a public business company which started by acquiring hotels and breweries such as Cairn Brewery, Northern Australian Breweries, Fitzgerald Brewery, Brewering and Malting business company and Hodges Brewery back in the 1920s.

In 1983, CUB was purchased by the Elders IXL and began acquiring companies overseas. They acquired and purchased numbers of breweries such as Courage Brewing Group in England in 1983 and the Carling O'Keefe in Canada in 1987. The CUB’s name was then retained through the changing of the Elders IXL to Foster's Brewing Group Limited.

Foster's started their expansion project in 1993 and built a branch of its owned brewery in Shanghai, China and the Cascade in Tasmania. A year later, they made an expansion to the Matilda Bay Brewing Company located in Australia.

A premium wine producer, the T'Gallant company was acquired by the company back in 2003. They specialise in supplying Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. After that year, they began to form a new business with a Non-Alcohol Brand named Carlton. The main purpose for this project is to supply non-alcoholic juices and flavoured mineral waters.
