J C & R H Palmer Ltd

This much loved private company was founded in 1794 at the Old Brewery, Bridport. Registration came as late as 1975 and the brewery is thankfully still independent. I don’t think they changed the design of their labels very often, but I would like to know the reasons behind the brown and green Extra Stout labels. One of the last companies to use a combined neck and stopper label, which must surely have slowed the bottling line.
