Flower and Sons used to have a brewery in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon.

I started working for them in 1968. The company was then owned by Whitbread who decided to close the brewery but still keep a distribution depot and office, The office was a converted pub in College Lane which was knocked down and flats were built on the site.

Flower’s lasting legacy (arguably bad) was the invention of keg beer. Flower’s Keg was the first keg beer on the market.

Does anyone have any memories?
