John Sherwood Brewery Caerleon - Stone Bottle

Stone Bottle & Jar
John Sherwood Brewery,


Like so many of the old inns in Caerleon, the Hanbury once brewed its own ales. In fact the Hanbury Bewery produced more than enough for the Hanbury Arms. Its ales were advertised widely. Prices at the start of the 1900s ranged from 6d (2½p) to 1s 4d (7p) a gallon depending on the strength of the brew.
In 1910, the Hanbury Arms merged with the Eastern Valley Brewery Company Ltd, but was still run by the previous landlord, John Sherwood.
