Labels from Walker & Homfrays Woodside Brewery have been added to our featured brewery section. Follow England > North West > Walker & Homfrays.
Very grateful to Geoff for the additional images of labels from J J Young & Sons of Portsmouth. We have also played about with the order. Can you see why??
The first news of the day is to report a slight change to the Gallery section of our website. We are going to feature labels from one county at a time for a limited period and we start with Kent. Many of you will think you know why. And you are wrong. It is because Steve B sent me the beautiful images of labels from Arkcolls of Chatham, C N Kidd of Dartford, Leney of Dover, Phillips of West Malling and Woodhams of Rochester. How I wish they were in my collection. You can see them all, together with a number of others from Kent brewers in the Gallery section now.
Two labels from Fremlin of the Medway Brewery, Maidstone. It is a taster for something new to celebrate our first birthday. Wait till tomorrow.
For the AGM we have added labels from the Trunch Brewery Ltd and J. J. Young & Sons Ltd of Portsmouth to our featured brewery section.
There does seem to be a small change on the well known internet auction site. There are one or two sellers who now regularly include accurate sizes in their listings. Recent labels from Jon and Mike are very good examples. To make the point again, here are three labels from Walker & Homfrays Woodside Brewery. Sizes are 108mm, 90mm and 70mm tall.
Plenty of one of these two labels around. But which one have you got??
Sadly the 2002 official beer of the world cup has indistinct lettering so it will have to be the 2006 Germany offering from AB Argentina. Lovely! And what a challenge for the graphic designers.
So far the response has been just sufficient to stop me listing another of my AB labels. So here is this one from the York Brewery 1998.
Two labels from the Trueman Street and Cook Street breweries. One dates before 1961 and the other after the merger.
