Stoke on Trent

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

I recently visited Stoke on Trent and came across what I think was the old
Dix & Co Ltd brewery – as in Century – on the corner of Broad St and Sun Street in the Shelton area. Much of the buildings are still there which I did not expect currently masquerading as a warehouse ( I am not sure if it is open?)- but it all looks in need of some tlc.
Can you get in? is there much to see inside- I would be interested in the history since it closed in 1933?

I will try and attach a couple of photos I took in Jan 2008

Breweries & Pubs of Reigate & Redhill

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

Richard Symonds has started a web site covering the history of breweries and pubs in Reigate, Redhill and the surrounding areas. It is stillunder development but has been populated with the content of his recent book on the topic and is well worth a look.

He is keen to have any additional information, and related images, fed back to him.

Hello world!

BHS LogoWelcome to the Brewery History Society blog.

We hope this will become the home for stimulating discussions about British brewery history but please note that we are NOT a campaigning organisation so no strong opinions about businesses please. As we say in our membership documentation

The Society makes a conscious effort to cater for the needs of its members and, at the same time, seeks to become a respected body within the brewing industry. To this end the Society does not involve itself in the politics of brewing policy. Whilst the Society obviously regrets the closure of breweries our role is to record them, not to try and stop them.

Happy Blogging
