Most of the land was first purchased by brewer William Tulloch. Teaming up with Alexander McLaren, Tulloch constructed the 'Royal Standard Brewery' on blocks S9-17 and S9-18 of brick and bluestone to the design of Henry R. Caselli. It became the Ballarat Brewery and in 1958 was sold to Carlton & United Breweries.
1895 Ballarat Brewing Company was established and took over operations of the 'Royal Standard'. This new company resulted in the merger of the Royal Standard Brewery', James Coglan's Phoenix Brewery (Warrenheip) and Henry Leggo's 'Barley Sheaf Brewery' (Creswick Rd). James Coglan and William Tulloch were principals of the new company.
The Ballarat Brewery site is now the Brewery Complex in Lydiard Street at the Ballarat School of Mines.
