Castlemaine Woods Brothers & Co Brewery Newcastle


During 1874 Robert Prendergast and Nicholas Fitzgerald of the Castlemaine Brewery, Sydney, prepared plans to start a brewery in the New South Wales coastal town of Newcastle. The plans were made in association with Wood Brothers & Co., a long-established wine, spirit and import company that had held an agency for the sale of Castlemaine ale since 1868.

The brewery began production in 1876 under the name of Prendergast, Wood & Co. This was changed in 1887 to the Castlemaine Brewery & Wood Brothers & Co., Newcastle, NSW, Ltd — generally called the Castlemaine Brewery for simplicity. This poster advertised this new venture and was used to generate capital for the new brewery business.

Tooth & Co. Ltd of Sydney had been operating a small depot in Telford Street, Newcastle, and as part of their expansion programme they acquired all the assets of the Castlemaine Brewery & Wood Brothers in 1921.
