Blast From the Past

In my modest collection of breweriana, I have a few items from my favourite brewery, Higsons of Liverpool. Or should I say, my favourite closed brewery!

Does anyone out there remember this? It is a lager font - well a photo of one anyway. The beer was short lived and indirectly caused the demise of the brewery. Maybe I'll tell you why sometime. Unless anyone knows of course.

Then you can tell the story.

I've heard a few rumours about the reasons for their demise (canning plant & lager capability made them a reason to try a takeover bid?) but I'd like to hear more or other reasons?

Yes, I'd be interested to hear the story, too.

I like that label -- cool typeface and you can't go wrong with a bit of lurid green.
