Crosswell’s Cardiff Brewery Ltd

The brewery was originally founded as an agency for the sale of Showell’s Brewery beers in South Wales. The company was registered as Crosswell’s Cardiff Brewery Ltd in 1897 to amalgamate the Caerphilly & Castle Brewery Ltd with Crosswells Ltd. Acquired by Andrew Buchan’s Rhymney Breweries in 1936 and brewing ended in 1947. It would be interesting to know if the different designs of the beehive corresponded to particular years. I have assumed that the Queen Street Offices were the first, followed by St Mary Street.
