Steamrail is actually brewed by Australian Independent Distillers who also do Haagen (if you can still get that slop) and Kingfisher amongst others. Actually the KF isn't a bad stab at the original, I inadvertently had a few at in Indian Restaurant last year. They are very hard to track down on the net, don't advertise their presence or push products, they are strictly a background operation - definitely the SERCO of the brew world.
