Kidderminster, this brewery was established in 1807. It was amalgamated
Delph Brewery of
Brierley Hill in 1896 to form the Worcestershire
Brewing and Malting Company Ltd. This was not a successful venture and, in a bid
to save shareholder's investment, the company was restructured - the name was
changed in 1904 to the Kidderminster Brewery Co. Ltd. Brewing ceased at the
Blackwell Street site in 1914, a year after the company was acquired by
Wolverhampton and Dudley Breweries Ltd.
