Ballarat Bitter ‘Lake Wendouree’ Poster


In 1895 the Royal Standard Brewery and the Phoenix Brewery Ballarat amalgamated to form Coghlan and Tulloch’s Ballarat Brewing Company Limited. Not long after this event the new brewery acquired the Barley Sheaf Brewery on the Creswick Road. The new trademark of the company was a combination of the Phoenix and the Royal Standard held in its beak. In 1910 the company changed its name to The Ballarat Brewing Co Pty Ltd. The Phoenix Brewery was eventually closed in 1911 and in 1936 the Ballarat Brewing Co Pty Ltd became a public company.

In 1926 the company launched its first major advertising campaign using the famous “Ballarat Bertie”. Bertie made a significant impact in Melbourne. Paintings were commissioned by Ballarat Brewing Company solely for the purpose of going into hotels that offered Ballarat Bitter. Each one was an original but isn’t signed by the artist, but it was signed by the advertising company that had the contract, A & A Henderson signwriters of Ballarat.
