In 1966 Whitbread took over Rhymney Breweries the largest brewery in South Wales and the following year took over the wonderfully names Evans Evans Bevans Brewery; in 1969 the 2 companies were merged to become Whitbread Wales Ltd. This booklet records the history of these 2 founding breweries and the other breweries in Wales that Whitbread indirectly acquired as subsidiaries of other companies that they later bought. Finally the author looks at the Welsh licensed trade and Whitbread's later newly built brewery at Magor. contains many good B & w photos.
