1974-1980 Shipstones Nottingham as Brewer
1980-1988 Shrewsbury and Wem Brewery as Head Brewer
1988-2009 Hanby Ales as Brewer and MD
2009-2012 Gertie Sweet Brewing Co as Brewer and proprietor
2012 New Plassey Brewery as Brewer and proprietor
The company has been formed after the merger of Plassey Brewery with Gertie Sweet Brewery and is due to the success of the new Wrexham Lager Company. Ian Dale the previous owner of Plassey is fully committed with the new lager venture so it made sense for Jack Hanby, who was brewing his own beers at the Plassey, to merge the two companies and to market the most popular brands of the two companies under the banner of a new company hence The New Plassey Brewery.
Some of the beers from this new venture will be available at the Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival in June at the Motorpoint Arena.
