The History of Robinsons Brewery

Total: £0

A History of Robinsons Brewery. Hardback book detailing the history of the brewery and the Robinson family. This book covers the origin of the Unicorn, the making of a brewery, acquisitions, becoming a limited company, country pubs, expension at Bredbury with a new bottling plant, expansion into the Lake District and an independent Future. A great bedside read, or one for the coffee table!

The story of Frederic Robinson and the Unicorn Brewery is essentially the history of a sturdily independent business, but it is also a family story, as well as being a social history of changing attitudes to drinking, as urban watering holes were replaced by pretty country pubs.

This book, illustrated with a series of excellent photgraphs, is not just a history of a brewery but of a family which has played - and continues to play - an important role in British Brewing. The Story of Robinsons will fascinate not only those interested in beer and brewing, but anyone with a taste for the ups and downs of business life over the last 150 years and more.
