The Foster brothers arrived in Melbourne from America in 1886. They built a modern brewery and produced Australia's first bottom fermented beer. This brewery eventually led to the creation of the Foster's Brewing Company. In 1907 Foster's Brewing Company and Carlton Brewery amalgamated with four other breweries to form Carlton and United Breweries (CUB). This was later expanded to form the Foster's Group which is still in operation.
