Postcard of exterior view of the Castle Eden brewery in Whitbread days.
Brewery founded 1826 by John Nimmo and traded as J. Nimmo & Sons Ltd until it was acquired by Whitbread in 1963. One of the few breweries to continue brewing (albeit as Whitbread East Pennines) under the Whitbread reign.
Management buy-out from Whitbread in 1998 to form the Castle Eden Brewery.
Brewery company has now moved from Castle Eden to the Cameron's brewery in Hartlepool.
