    The History

    Peter McMullen, a Master Cooper by profession, started the business in 1827. He made barrels and casks selling them to the ten small brewing companies that were established in Hertford town at that time.

    He soon decided to go into brewing, starting in an outhouse adjacent to his cooperage before building and moving to a full scale commercial brewery known as the Mill Bridge Brewery less than three years later.

    In those early days, Peter sold his beer to many pubs and individuals. It was not until Boxing Day 1836 that he bought his first pub, the Greyhound at Bengeo. The deal included three cottages on four acres of land at a consideration of £481.

    In 1891 a new Brewery was built in the centre of Hertford along with a Artesian well to supply natural water which was ‘sunk’ to a depth of 140 feet. It took nine days to complete the job and cost £93-18s-8d! This was followed by two more wells each going down some 250 feet,

    The Company operates 135 pubs, all located in the northern Home Counties, from central London to Chelmsford in the East, to Windsor in the West and to Cambridge in the North.

    Mc Mullen moved to their new brewery just across the road in 2006 and this building was then brought by Sainsburys
