Beverley Brothers, Harrison St, Wakefield. Founded 1861, with 173 tied houses from Lancashire to Teesside, taken over by Watney Mann's Wilsons operation in March 1967, with the usual promise of no redundancies, and closed October 1968. Read about the "Warm Welcome to the latest member of the Watney Mann Group" and see pictures. Its principle beers were Trinity Bitter and Eagle Bitter. Middlesbrough Bitter was brewed for twice weekly delivery to its own pubs, and also clubs, in the Hartlepool area, whilst DPA was brewed for its pubs in Lancashire, acquired through the takeover of John Baxter of Waterfoot in 1952. Also a 6% old ale was brewed in small quantities in the winter. In bottle were Golden Eagle Light Ale, IPA and Old Warrior Brown Ale. After the closure of the brewery, the Wines and Spirits Distribution Plant was kept going until 1971. Much of the site is now occupied by a new health centre, and Fernandes' Old Malt House was once Beverleys' malt house. You can still see original Beverleys glass in windows at the Queen's in Outwood. Take a look at some Beverleys beer mats.

Beverley Bros. had one pub in Leeds, the Railway Tavern, Upper Cross Street. Beverley’s bought the premises when it came up for sale in 1875 [after the death of one of the Mortgagees].It remained their only premises in the city until they surrendered the license in 1941.The surrender of the license was another “horse trading” event on the part of the Licensing Justices, only in this case, it wasn’t in the favour of Beverley Bros.The license was traded in favour of the Woodman at Headingley which, at the time was a Kirkstall Brewery beer house. The surrender of the Railway’s license meant that the Justices upgraded the Woodman to a Full On, Publican’s License.The only reason I can think for this happening is possibly Beverley’s pinning their hopes on [or mabe being promised] first dibs on the new pub planned as part of the Saxton Gardens redevelopment.Sadly, the new Railway Tavern never got to the bricks and mortar stage and Beverley’s lost their toe-hold pub in LeedsLeodis had a photo of the proposed premises.http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?reso ...
