Michael Jackson's The New World Guide to Beer reports that Castlemaine XXXX is brewed by Bond Brewing in Brisbane, but the label on my bottle says Unibev Ltd. (Golden CO), which is a front for Coors. Apparently that's a can from ancient history, however; here's a report from Lion Nathan's Anna Kasper:
Hello. Castlemaine Perkins is still the company which brews XXXX - not Bond Brewing - that company went under about 5 years ago. It's only ever been the one brewery at Milton, brewing the same brews. We were exporting XXXX to the States - it must be an old can if it's got a Coors label. Please don;t drink it, it will be old and papery.
Furthermore, according to Australian correspondent , Kirin took control of Lion Nathan in 1998. The still go under the name of Lion Nathan but Kirin has control with 46%.
