The visual image of the ‘beer factory’ had become increasingly important, with the brewery’s image being used on bottle labels and in advertisements. Barrett’s Vauxhall Brewery (1885) was an extreme example of this trend, with a 119 feet high brewhouse tower topped by a huge, illuminated revolving stout bottle.
