Steven Bradbury OAM is hosting a series of Last Man Standing Australian Lager tastings at select Dan Murphy’s stores to promote the beer he co-founded.
Festivities kick-off at Dan Murphy’s in Maryborough on Thursday, 25 February from 3pm to 6pm.
He will also promote the brew in Bundaberg, Gladstone and Rockhampton.

Mr Bradbury skated to a gold medal in the 1000m event at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, in the United States of America.
“I don’t do anything by halves, especially when it comes to something as important as beer, which is why we’ve made Australia’s best lager,” the Brisbane-based athlete said.
He partnered with brewing brothers Damian and Stephen Prosser to make Last Man Standing Australian Lager.
The drink is 100 per cent Aussie-made and owned by LMS Brewing.
Since literally being the last man standing and winning his gold medal in 2002, ‘doing a Bradbury’ has become Aussie slang for surprising success that comes as a result of effort, commitment and self-belief.
Mr Bradbury won the 1000m event at the 2002 Winter Olympics after all of his opponents were involved in a last corner fall – giving him a clear glide to victory.

“Steven is definitely doing a Bradbury with Last Man Standing Lager. Customers are loving this lager because they’re huge fans of Steven, but also because it is a classic lager – crisp, refreshing and perfect for the Queensland climate,” said Dan Murphy’s Craft Beer Category Manager Billy Ryan.
“We started by having the lager in just a few of our Queensland stores, but thanks to its growing popularity, Last Man Standing is now available in all Queensland Dan Murphy’s,” he added.
