Allsopp’s Jubilee Ale

Friday, March 14th, 2008

Hi Ray

I don’t have an example of their lager, but I do have 1935 George V Jubilee Ale and will upload an image of that.

Does anyone have a bottle of pre World War II Allsopp’s Lager or photograph of the same?  If so I would be most interested in seeing it.

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
