I have been asked what I meant by overwhelmingly positive response. It means no-one mailed in to say they didn’t like it. So here are two more Northampton India Pale Ale labels.
Following the overwhelmingly positive response to the posting of variations of relatively common labels, here are a couple more from the Northampton Brewery Co.
Right Dale, you asked for it. Here is my first contribution. If I don’t get a torrent of posts shouting STOP, I shall post some more in the same series. The bottle label is only slightly more attractive than the bottle contents.
AB Argentina produced this for their 355cc bottles of the official beer for the 1998 World Cup.
A pair of Gold Medal Pale Ale labels from Reffell’s Bexley Brewery continue the theme of finding detail differences in relatively common labels. And that is a nice lead in to say that a number of new images have been added to Reffell’s Featured Brewery section. Follow Featured Brewery > England > South East> Reffell’s Bexley Brewery
An attractive pair of labels from another local brewery. I wonder if there is anyone out there who knows the date of the trademark change.
There are so many variations of Matthew Brown labels, it is really difficult to keep up. Here are three quite different versions of their Lion “S” Ale
It has been suggested to me by a number of followers that it would be a good idea to publish pairs of labels which are relatively common so that collectors are more aware of the differences and additional labels can be picked up for relatively small amounts of money. So here we go with two labels from Mitchell’s Central Brewery in Lancaster. The slight colour difference is one which doesn’t always come across in the images you seen on screen, but it is not the important variation.
My choice this time. Two more from South Shields. This was just a change of name for the brewery and so a complete change of design was not considered worthwhile. My brewers directory for 1949 lists three members of the Johnson family as directors.
I think the Yorkshire followers are just a little bit keener than most. We are back to Duncan Gilmour, thanks to continued requests from a regular visitor. This is the third pair of pre-war and post-war labels from that brewery.
Labels from the Eagle brewery have been added to our featured brewery section. Follow England > East Midlands
There are a couple of things I would like clarified. Is the 1930s correct for the first four labels? Is Festivale brewed for the festive season or is it for a particular festival? Could it be the Festival of Britain 1951 or the Leicester Brass Band Festival of 1931? The last two images are labels which do not indicate the beer? Are there neck labels to go with them? Are my assumptions correct? Let me know. Please!
