Fosters beer was founded by William and Ralph Foster in 1888 and quickly made a name for itself in its home city of Melbourne. Fosters replaced the prior ales that the British had brought with them. Aussies loved the sharp taste and ice-cold refreshment that Fosters beer provided. In fact, keeping the beer cold was the top priority for William and Ralph. 1888 was a scorcher of the summer, and the hot temperatures and bush fires were a constant threat to the the locals’ new favourite beer. The brothers built 6 miles of pipeline to keep their lager chilled with sea water, and even set up their own fire brigade to protect their precious brewery! Thats how hard Fosters worked to produce the beer we know and love today. And we’re so glad that they did!
