$24.00$85.00

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 now famous “Ballarat Bertie”. Bertie made a significant impact in sales in Ballarat and Melbourne.

This particular poster was made by printing on the glass in reverse leaving some colours transparent. You then insert a silver corrugated foil behind to create a three dimensional effect. The process was patented under the name SOLAFLEX. The patent was taken out by a William Albert Burns, London, England on 6 April 1929.
