We have, over the last several months talked with the National Brewery Heritage Trust, National Brewery Heritage Trust
Following their acquisition of a collection of pre-war labels from Darleys, the well known label printers in Burton on Trent. Some 250 of these labels have been scanned and can now be seen here National Brewery Heritage Trust Shop there are some 17 pages of labels, so allow yourself a lengthy browsing slot.
OK you will start browsing & think to yourself, nah! got them all. Well be patient because I think you may be in for a surprise or three. If you find one that you have lusted after for years, well at least now you can buy one, albeit as a coaster. Ideal for home bars, man caves or just to put your pint on whilst adding all those new labels to your collections.
We hope that more of these labels will be scanned over the coming months, in the meantime, go browse, enjoy & feel very jealous. I certainly did!
