THE BRANDON BREWERY

At one point in time Hamilton had it’s very own brewery! The Brandon Brewery was situated on the east side of Quarry Road, which is now called Quarry Street.

The Brewery was listed as a “Small Brewery” and the gate keeper was called William McKenzie who lived at the Gate house between 1858-1861.

The Brewery was still here in 1913 as it appeared on the map of this year, However the next map that i looked at was an areal photo of the town taken in 1944 and it was no longer there.

The picture above taken from Google Street view is the former site of the Brandon Brewery. So far I have been unable to find any further information on the brewery, however this story will be archived and investigated in the future.
