Cask Labels #5

A complete contrast to the previous couple of examples, this label was in use in the 1920s. One colour, quite striking, the brewery and the beer. So was it produced by Nuttall’s who operated the Lion Brewery until 1926  or was it Matthew Brown of Preston, who acquired the brewery in 1926. Nuttall’s beers were apparently very well-liked in Blackburn and the surrounding areas and there was much opposition to the change of ownership. Matthew Brown had bought Nuttall’s because they needed the additional  capacity and so the labels just had Lion Brewery and not the company name. Even in the 1960s the company name did not dominate the labels used.
