This directory covers the areas of the old counties of Northumberland and Durham including the city of Newcastle. The entries are in place-name order and follow the usual BHS pattern of first-known reference, ownership, brewers-proprietors, and in most cases the final demise of the company. The entries range from a single line where nothing more is known about the brewery to a few pages for a well-documented brewer (e.g. Vaux). Source references accompany each entry, and an index is included.

The area covered by the gazetteer is that of the present county of Somerset, and thus excludes the area which is now part of Bath and North-East Somerset. The entries give a brief history of the brewery and if known, more details such as the brewery builders and engineers, the beers brewed, pubs owned, area served and an indication of the brewery size. Reference sources are given for each entry. A good supply of black & white photos illustrates the text.
