Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Brewing Patents Limited was established by The Brewers' Society in 1954 in order to apply for and hold patents, grant licences to members of the Society to use the patents, and to receive any licence fees. The work of the company was later expanded to include a 'Patent Watching Service' and opposition to patents that might cause problems for members of the Brewers' Society.
In 1976 control of Brewing Patents Ltd was transferred from the Brewers' Society to the Brewing Research Foundation.
