Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The Border Brewery Company operated two breweries in Berwick–upon–Tweed, Northumberland, England , prior to 1895 . These were Silver Street Brewery at 14 Silver Street and Tweedmouth Brewery in Brewery Lane. Border Breweries Ltd was registered in July 1899 as a limited liability company to acquire the business. In 1924 the company merged with Johnson & Darling Ltd , Tweed Brewery, 12 Silver Street, Berwick–upon–Tweed, Northumberland, England , and changed its name in February 1925 to Berwick Breweries Ltd . In 1934 the company was taken over by Vaux Brewery who closed down the brewing side of operations; the company thereafter remained in business as a bottling plant up to the mid 1950s. The Border Brewery Company Ltd was reformed in 1992 by Mandy and Tony Clark and Carol and Alan Crawford and continues to brew.
