Dare's was located at the Southend Brewery on Belgrave Road where Highgate met
Balsall Heath. The origins of
William Dare & Son, a family-owned company, goes back to the 19th century,
though they only registered as Dare's Brewery Ltd in August 1927.
In addition to producing their own beers, Dare's had a bottling plant which I
know was used by
Worthington's. The Southend Brewery was eventually acquired by
Davenport's in 1961 by which time the firm had a tied estate of 30 pubs.
