Finally found some time to add labels from J. W. Lees, our latest corporate members to the site. To lure you in, here are a pair of Light Ale labels from the 1960s with a very slight difference in the shades of red, blue and yellow, and also the lettering.
After the Society AGM at Harvey’s Brewery in Lewes, there will be a brief report both here and in the Newsletter. Meanwhile the auction provided another previously unrecorded pair of Sandow Strong labels. I appreciate the price paid was probably in excess of what a sane person would have paid, but you can’t take it with you. Both labels are 1930s or earlier and I suspect the label on the left is the older. But when?
Apologies to all those who thought we had all died last weekend. All is now well and we should be free from the blue screen of death for the foreseeable future.
In the last few days we have begun to add images of labels from our latest Corporate member’ Donnington Brewery. There is still work to do to add a page to the Gallery. However we have added some attractive labels for Bristol United Breweries. You can find these HERE
I know we only featured a pair of Pale Ale labels from the South London Brewery quite recently, but I have just stumbled across this pair. Same beer but I guess slightly later examples. I can’t even begin to guess what might have prompted this very minor change.
I have to admit, this is another pair that I didn’t know existed. Another thank you to Nick for sending the images in. If only more members had the time and energy to send in their ‘finds’. The question these two Strong Ale labels raises is: ‘ why? ‘
