Friary Meux Name Revived

News: November 2016

The name of a brewery that closed in 1969 is about to retake its place on off-licence shelves.

Friary Meux in Guildford, Surrey, was part of the Allied Breweries empire until its closure and the name was subsequently kept alive when Allied produced Friary Meux Best Bitter for a number years at its Burton brewery.

Now Guildford’s Little Beer Corporation has obtained the rights from current owner Carlsberg UK to use the Friary Meux name for Friary Meux Audit Ale, a 7% ABV, golden barley wine, which is being sold in both filtered and bottle-conditioned versions from the end of November.

The recipe is new, the original Friary Meux recipe being lost.
