Hammond`s Bradford Brewery Co Ltd
The Fountain Brewery
Hi All ,
Just a quick post on this brewery ; the only Bradford brewery`s records I`ve seen ....... so far ! .
The records were , sent to me in confidence so sadly , I can`t share the recipies without permission but , the info given below is from my own transcriptions and interpretations of the brewing book for Hammond`s that has survived ( The only one to my certain knowledge) .
I`d be happy to hear from anyone who has old brewing records ; and would publish a table like the one below ; and recipies only by permission of the owner (etc) of the records .
My particular obsession(s) are locating the brewing production records of the following breweries ;
Bentley & Shaw , Lockwood Brewery , Huddersfield
Melbourne Brewery Ltd , Leeds
Bentley`s Yorkshire Breweries , Eshaldwell Brewery , Woodlesford Nr Leeds
Bentley`s Old Brewery Ltd , Rotherham
And any of the group / subsiduary breweries of Walker - Cain / Peter Walker & Sons Ltd .
If anyone can help with any of the above , please get in touch with me via the contact Edd The Brew box / button on the main blog page .
