Title: Paynes Brewery
Post by: conan on March 10, 2015, 19:56:47
Whilst looking for images of Halfway Houses in connection with the geneology thread I noticed on this picture of the Halfway Houses pub the legend Paynes Fine Ales

A bit of research turned up this interesting website

Thanks for that link conan, I have an old black glass beer bottle that is embossed Sittingbourne Steam Brewery which has DW embossed to the base. I was always under the impression the DW was something to do with Dean and Williams, but according to the link it is probably Paynes or Vallance.
