Slide Show of Stag Brewery, Pimlico

The Stag Brewery Pimlico started in 1641 and was one of the longest running breweries in England.  When it finally closed in April 1959 the company records and documents came to be deposited at the City of Westminster Archives Centre. It’s a vast collection covering many aspects of the company history.

One of the items in the collection is an album of photographs dating from 1922 showing workers at the brewery engaged in every part of the brewing process.  The photographs reveal the skill and expertise of the workers as well as the sheer beauty of many of the machines they operated. However, they also convey a real sense of life within this close-knit community where people worked, lived and socialised.

Brewery Archives in Scotland

Like the NBC, our old friends at Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery host a visitor centre for the public to view important artefacts from their history and to take tours of the brewery.

The team from Tennent’s work closely with the University of Glasgow Archive team who hold many collections relating to the Scottish brewing industry, often referred to as the Scottish Brewing Archive. Details of the Tennents archive material can be found here:

Details of all collections held at the University of Glasgow Archives can be found at:
