Although Fosters is ‘Australian for Beer”, I first tried it while here in London.
My cousin, who was taking me around London to visit our other family members had stopped off at Alexandra Palace, a historic entertainment venue in Alexandra Park to take a short break, take in some views of the city and catch up.
According to the Foster’s Legacy, taken from Foster’s official website, the beer was created in 1887 by brothers, William M and Ralph R Foster. The brewing process uses Pride of Ringwood hops which are only grown by Hop Products Australia in Bushy Park, Tasmania and Qvens River, Victoria and by Ellerslie Hop Estates in Myaree. Unlike other beers the hops are added at the end of the brewing process to preserve their freshness. The site claims the hops and the exclusive Foster’s Yeast is what gives Fosters its bold taste.
Personally, I thought the beer was good, however I’ve been told that although Foster’s is Australian, it is not an Australian favourite and has more success in other parts of the world. I wonder if that is true…
Please leave your comments at the bottom of the post.
