John Smith's Brewery, Tadcaster
John Smith's Brewery, Tadcaster
John Smith was a tanner's son who became an entrepreneur seeing opportunities for a brewing business as populations increased in northern towns during the Industrial Revolution.
John Smith's bitter was originally brewed at the Old Brewery, acquired in 1847.
Courage took over in the 1970s and in turn, were taken over by Scottish & Newcastle. Once, the hard well water of Tadcaster was ideal for brewing, but this is no longer of such importance due to technological advances. The brewery is much expanded since 1884 and Tadcaster is close to the cities of York and Leeds and the recently extended M1 motorway.
It was announced at the end of 2009 that the iconic Newcastle Brown Ale would no longer be brewed in Gateshead, but at the John Smith's plant in Tadcaster. Sacrilege.
