He's making a funny.

Foster's very much exists in the USA because it's like buying a 40 of Budweiser except you can pretend to be cosmopolitan. It does not, however, have much in the way of market dominance any longer. Carlton bought out the Olympia Brewery in the mid '90s, as well as Clearly Canadian. Thus, Foster's was produced indigenously from 1994 to 2003. It still has shelf presence, but no more so than Asahi, Chimay or Saporro.
