12 photos from the past raise a glass to Mansfield Brewery - and the staff behind the beer
The renowned Mansfield Brewery played a key role in the town for more than 100 years. Here's a trip down memory lane in photos that show it was about much more than the beer.
The brewery was at the heart of Mansfield and its reach spread much further than the dozens of trucks leaving the main site off Great Central Road loaded with gallons of bitter. The brewery staff supported many local charities and causes down the decades as our photos show. If you have any brewery snaps then email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Sponsored walk
This group of brewery staff are pictured preparing to set off on a sponsored walk in 1982. Let's hope they kept themselves hydrated with water along the way and not bitter!
