How much did that cost? #2

Something that will not stretch the budget in quite the same way as the Phillips & Marriott label would. Hole & Co of the Castle Brewery in Newark remained independent until 1967, when the company was acquired by Courage. The beer was a penny cheaper and although scarce this label would probably set you back less than a hundred pounds. Interesting use of ‘Tanner’ in the name of the beer, little to do with tanning, it was the popular name for a sixpenny piece.
