Poynings Brewery

The brewery in the village of Poynings was established in 1851 and from 1855 was owned by George Stephen Cuttress, who also owned much property in and around the village. The company became Cuttress and Son in 1889. It was then registered as Molesworth’s Poynings Brewery Ltd in 1925 and continued until brewing ceased in 1940. The first labels produced after 1925 used the Molesworth’s designation but in the 1930s Poynings Brewery became the preferred title on labels and other advertising material.
