Ansells


Ansells

Ansells was a brewery located in the Aston area of Birmingham, England.

The brewery was founded by Joseph Ansell in 1858 at Aston Cross on the site of several artesian wells, at coord|52.500|-1.8820|region:GB_type:landmark|display=inline,title (the later HP Sauce factory was adjacent). Ansells became a limited company in 1901 and grew by acquiring several other smaller local brewers including Rushtons (1923), Lucas of Leamington (1928) and Holt's Brewery (1934). Holt's logo, a Red Squirrel seen in side profile, was subsequently adopted by Ansells to identify its own beers.

In 1961, Ansells merged with Tetley Walker and Ind Coope to form Allied Breweries. The Aston Brewery stopped all production following an industrial dispute in 1981. The site is now a car showroom. Production was subsequently moved to Allied's Burton upon Trent brewery, and some former staff set up the Aston Manor Brewery.
