Foster's Lager is an internationally distributed Australian brand of lager.
Foster's was created by two Irish American brothers, William M. and Ralph R. Foster, who arrived in Melbourne from New York in 1886.
The brothers began brewing Foster's Lager in November 1888. It was made available to the public from February 1889.
The product was first exported in 1901, when bottles were sent to Australian combatants in the Boer War.
Advertising from the early 20th century claimed Foster's Lager was adjuncted with cane sugar. A number of breweries advertised a sugar content
(e.g. Bulimba) as it implied a lighter less bitter brew than was commonly sold. (Rice malt and very light barley malts replaced sugar, which can be troublesome for brewers.).
As per the tradition started in the early 20th century, the water used in the production is sourced from the nearby Yarra River which attributes to the beer's unique taste.
