The Ballarat Brewing Company was bought out by Carlton & United Beverages (or Carlton & United Breweries as it was known at the time, commonly abbreviated to 'CUB') in 1989, and the Ballarat bottling operations subsequently closed. [ [ Australian Beers' History of CUB] ]

In December 2006, following a request by the crew of the "Anzac" class frigate HMAS "Ballarat" (which uses the caricature of "Ballarat Bertie" from the label as a mascot [ Bertie sets sail again] Dead link|date=August 2008] ) to Catherine King, the Member of Parliament representing the Division of Ballarat, the Foster's Group (CUB's parent company) created a limited run of the beer.cite news |url= |title=Buying up big on Bertie beer |date=12 Decemner 2006 |accessdate=2008-08-23 |publisher=The Courier] An initial release of 40 pallets (4,800 slabs, 1,152,000 individual cans) sold out within days of release, with $1 from every slab donated to the United Way charities. A second run of 50 pallets was released shortly after.
