Webster's Brewery

Webster's Brewery (Samuel Webster & Sons Limited), was founded in 1838 by Samuel Webster and operated at the Fountain Head Brewery in Halifax in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. Webster's Green Label, a light mild, and Yorkshire Bitter became famous across the country after the company was taken over by Watney Mann in 1972. Throughout the 1970s it was known for the advertising slogan: 'Drives out the northern thirst'.

The brewery was closed with the loss of hundreds of jobs in 1996. The brand had suffered lower sales after marketing support was withdrawn following its acquisition by Courage Brewery in 1990. After the brewery's closure, Webster's beers were initially brewed at the John Smith's Brewery in Tadcaster before moving to the Thomas Hardy Brewery at Burtonwood in 2004. Silvan Brands have owned the company since 2003 when they bought it from Scottish & Newcastle.
