Some History on this Brewery
The Diamond Brewery of Hutchin's and Jackson was located at Cromwell Street in Kate's Hill, Dudley. Owned by Joseph Plant, the business was well established by 1899. The firm was advertised for sale in the Dudley Advertiser on June 15th 1901. The sale included two pubs along with the brewery tap which operated as an off licence. The brewery plant was described as almost new and 5 quarters in size with a capacity of around 240 barrels per week. The two pubs were the Loving Lamb Inn at Kate's Hill and the Black Horse in Dudley's Upper High Street.

The partnership of Hutchin's and Jackson bought the business and retained the name of the Diamond Brewery. By 1912 John Jackson had bought out his partner and slowly developed the business. By 1920 he went into partnership with Percy Crowhurst, a man who owned several pubs in the area. The company's tied estate had grown to 15 when they were acquired by Darby's Brewery of Greet's Green, West Bromwich. They were, in turn, bought by Mitchell's and Butler's in 1951.
