Cnr Thompson & Nelson Streets
While Foster’s maybe one of Australia’s largest beer exports, it is barely drunk on home turf. Though their eponymous drink may have sunk without a trace here in Australia, the Foster’s Group produces local favourites, Carlton Draught and Victoria Beer. With their Abbotsford based plant meeting the demands of the southern half of Australia, it is little surprise to hear that on a daily basis they produce an impressive 200,000 litres of beer.
With the Carlton Brewhouse now open for public tours, the Foster’s Group is allowing insight into the extreme mechanic workings that keep them at the front of their field. With barely a human body in sight, their famous brands of beer are created by a super-efficient machine. Though limited viewing is allowed, with the Foster’s Group remaining highly guarded about their trade secrets, it
was a shame that though clearly explained, the actual creative process was hidden behind the mask of the machine. Though the super-efficient bottling process is eye-ball dropping brilliant, it is the taste testing at the end that gets those taste buds tickled. With a choice of 10 drinks across Foster’s range, my personal recommendation is the Carlton Black.
