Some History on this Brewery
This company was established and registered in 1910 in order to amalgamate two notable breweries, that of J. & J. Yardley Ltd. and I. Yardley & Sons of Bloxwich and the South Staffordshire Brewery Co. Ltd. of Wolverhampton. The newly combined tied-estate totalled 134 public houses. The company was based at the South Staffordshire Brewery premises in Market Street, Wolverhampton. The whole enterprise was acquired by Frank Myatt Limited in 1919.
