How much did that cost? #11

Still on the more expensive beers, today we offer a label from Constable & Sons of the Anchor Brewery in Littlehampton. To encourage contributions from fellow brewery historians, we are going to say very little about this label, except to comment that 1/6d seems a lot for a Mild Ale, it is after all more than 7p in today’s money.

  • Agreed that this is expensive. I started drinking beer in the mid 60’s when a pint of Tamplin’s Sussex Bitter in Central Brighton would have cost 1/10d.

  • The Littlehampton Brewery closed in the early 1920s, 1/6 would have been really expensive then. This label would surely been for a quart bottle or a flagon.
