Pic(k) of the Week: The Breweries of Great Britain & Ireland, in 1958.

The Breweries of Great Britain & Ireland (1958)

In April 1958, British newspaper The Times published a month-long special supplement.
It offers a comprehensive survey of the very varied aspects of beer, from barley to consumer. ¶ Beer is known as Britain's national beverage, and this volume contains something of interest to most people.

In 1960, The Times compiled the articles, publishing them in a standalone book, Beer In Britain. The map is from that book, long out-of-print. Like the book, many (most) of the breweries depicted are now long gone.
