Brewing and its associated activities have been important industries in Hertfordshire for centuries. In Brewers in Hertfordshire, Allan Whitaker presents a detailed history of brewing in the county from 1700 to the present day. Allan Whitaker's survey charts the complex patterns of growth, sales and mergers, including the activities of brewers from outside the county that had part of their tied estates or in some cases maltings within the county boundary. A fascinating picture emerges of family fortunes made and lost, with businesses intimately tied in to marriages and deaths.
