Cask Labels #8

Please accept our apologies if you found the Henry Meux label a little bland. This should cheer you up; our first venture into full colour printing for this example from Paine & Co of St Neots which, at the time the label was issued would have been in Huntingdonshire. Gold Medal winners in 1934, prominently displayed, and this time an empty space to put the address it was going to.

  • Although Paine’s did I believe later have an beer called ‘Gold Medal Ale’, as this cask label reads ‘Gold Metal Ales’, I would think that the reference is a general one not to a specific beer and thus the blank space at the bottom would have been used to write or stamp in the type/name of the beer in the barrel.
