History

In 1877, the Fitzgerald brothers Nicholas and Edward had a dream to create the finest ales in Australia.

To accomplish this, they moved from Victoria to the warmer climes of Brisbane and started the world-class XXXX Brewery.

With the help of a German ale expert the Fitzgerald brothers started producing great beers, that soon earned the XXXX mark of high quality beverages.

They were heavily involved with Australia as the company evolved and started innovating new recipes and brews, even distributing XXXX beers in both the first and second World Wars.

After the 1950s the brewery started using the stubby, a compact bottle that is stronger, easier to hold and simpler to transport.

It was a move that catapulted XXXX forward, giving them more freedom of transport, especially around the vast Australia continent.

Despite a variety of success, it wasn’t until 1992 that the XXXX Brewery became a household name in beers. The catalyst was the release of XXXX Gold, a mid-strength beer that Australians loved.

It went on to become the most popular and best-selling beer in Australia, a reputation that XXXX has successfully upheld.

Interesting Facts

  • Soldiers in the First and Second World Wars nicknamed the XXXX lager that was given to the troops Barbed Wire.
