Tooheys Beer - How Women Open a Beer

Toohey's dates from 1869, when John Thomas Toohey obtained his brewing license. John Thomas Toohey and his brother James Matthew ran pubs in Melbourne before moving to Sydney in the 1860s. They commenced brewing Tooheys Tooheys Black Old Ale in a brewery in the area of present day Darling Harbour. By 1875, demand for their beer had soared and they established The Standard Brewery in inner-city Surry Hills. In 1902, the company went public as Tooheys Limited, and commenced brewing lager in 1930. In 1955, the brewery moved west to Lidcombe, where it is currently sited.

In 1980, NSW-based Tooheys merged with Queensland's Castlemaine Perkins to form Castlemaine Tooheys. Bond Corporation purchased Castlemaine Tooheys in 1985. Lion Nathan acquired 50% stake in Bond's Natbrew Holdings in 1990, and took total ownership in 1992.

Production of Hahn-branded beers was moved from the Camperdown Hahn Brewery to Tooheys, some time between 1993 and 1999.

Products sold under the Tooheys trademark are Beers brewed at Tooheys brewery and home-brew kits, distributed by Lion Nathan and produced at Canterbury Brewery. Tooheys is the major sponsor of Rugby Union in New South Wales and Queensland, and in 2002 and 2003 was the sponsor of the Melbourne Cup in Victoria.
