Brewers & Brewing in Gosport

For those of you who have an interest in brewing history, as well as historical labels, then you may well need to add this to your library.

Some 50 A4 pages including covers, well illustrated in both black & white and colour, with excellent maps.

We have only had a quick flick thru, but looks to be well worth the £6 inc p & p. Cheques & cash only I am afraid.

Label illustrations courtesy of Keith O & Mike J.

If you would like to acquire a copy then email: to check on availability & payment.

We are sure Philip will be delighted to hear from you

DC Label Auction at London Meeting

OK, perhaps you are not sure whether to make the trip to London on the 26th.

Even if the Harvey’s ales, good company & the nearby Borough Market, haven’t persuaded you.

Then perhaps some images of the labels up for grabs will twist your arm sufficiently.

Have a look below





That should have done the trick, we look forward to seeing you all for the first time in 2019.
