Adventures in Brewing - Foster's History

You probably have already heard of Foster's Lager - it is the most popular Australian beer in the world. But you may not know that this beer has deep roots. Back in 1887 when Foster's was first brewed, most beer was served at room temperature. Brothers William and Ralph Foster figured their fellow Australians would enjoy a cold beer in that warm climate. And they were right! The Fosters even served it with ice so it could be enjoyed at its best.
