From the Brewery History Society Newsletter Number 58

Situated behind the New Inns. Founded by James Sandiford in 1875. In 1887 bought by Alfred Hood & Sons, who established offices and stores in Albert Street and Moor Street. By 1890 they had 13 tied houses in the area. In 1892 at Thimble Mill Lane, but closed 1905 after being taken over by Holt Brewery Co. Ltd.

However, trade directories show:

1877 Alfred Hood, Holborn Hill, Nechells 1884-87 342 Nechells Park Road

Which suggests the acquisition may have been three years earlier.
