Brewery History Society

The other story from the BHS newsletter is one on beer mats.

The Huddersfield Daily Examiner reports that the manufacturing of beer mats is to switch from the Katz Quarmby Group in Huddersfield to Germany. The closure of the Brighouse site after 136 years of operation means the loss of 12 jobs. The firm was founded in 1872 as Quarmby Promotions and began making beer mats in 1932. It was taken over a few years back by the German Katz Group. The firm estimate that over the years they have produced 9.5 billion beer mats !
