Queensland Brewery Pilsener ‘Beer Stein’ poster


The Queensland brewery could push out 36,000 quart bottles a day in the 1931. Glass-lined vats were installed ostensibly to cope with the popularity of the newer Bulimba Pilsener and Bright Star Ale  in 1934 and by 1936, extensions were needed for the brewery.

Filled with the “sunshine of Queensland itself that it cannot otherwise be a healthful beverage”, the brewing of Bulimba beers constituted “one of the great industries of the state”.

In 1961, Queensland Brewery Co – the brewers of Bulimba Gold Top, Pilsener, Bright Star Ale, Red Top stout, Green Top non-alcoholic beer and Silver Top mild – was bought out by what is today Carlton & United Breweries, a subsidiary of Fosters Group/SABMiller now part of the InBev group. It was one of a series of purchases that led to the duopoly we have today. The two giants of beer, like many Australian industries, dwarf all others.

When CUB bought into Queensland Breweries they started an advertising campaign using old beer steins to reinforce the European pilsener heritage.
