XXXX is Australia’s number one beer and our history with the great state of QLD is nearly 140 years old. In 1878, brothers Nicholas and Edward Fitzgerald had one goal in life: to create the finest ales known to man. After starting out in Castlemaine, Victoria, they decided they needed a world-class brewery (and warmer weather), so they packed up and moved to Brisbane. And so the Castlemaine Perkins brewery was born, known today as the home of XXXX.
XXXX is a brand synonymous with Queensland and we are no strangers to the Commonwealth Games, having previously been the official beer of the Brisbane games back in 1982. Nearly 35 years later, XXXX continues to show its support for Queensland on the world stage as we return once again in 2018 as the official beer of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, and the Australian Commonwealth Games team.
As the number one beer brand and number one mid-strength in the country which champions moderation and responsible consumption, XXXX is all about taking in the gold and we are excited to bring the GOLD to the Gold Coast in 2018.
