It's been done plenty but as it's the 1st time I managed to get in I thought I'd share.....glad I got in before it turned into Meadowhall the following weekend & is now shut up again.

William Stones started brewing at the premises in Acorn Street, Sheffield, where this brewery took up all the western side of the street. Sometime after 1860, he formed a partnership with Mr Watts and moved about half a mile down the road, taking over the Neepsend Brewery of Shephard, Green and Hatfield. This then became “Cannon Brewery.”

In the early 1940s Stones produced a new, light coloured bitter beer, it was named simply “Stones Bitter.”

The Cannon Brewery and it’s tied estate of 310+ pubs, which stretched throughout South Yorkshire and surrounding counties, was bought by Bass Charrington in 1968. Brewing continued ad by then “Stones Bitter” was also brewed at the Tower Brewery in Tadcaster. The Sheffield brewery continued until 1999 when it closed. The name lives on and the beer is brewed by Coors Brewers Ltd, the successors to Bass, at their Burton-on-Trent Brewery.

Funnily enough I used to work for Bass..........wish I'd visited back then.
