Additional Information

The roots of Ind Coope can be traced back to George Cardon, who in 1709 started brewing behind The Star Inn in Romford, Essex. In 1799 Edward Ind acquired the pub and a larger brewery was built. In 1845 Octavius Coope and George Coope joined with Edward Ind to form Ind, Coope & Co. In 1856 the company opened a much larger brewery in Burton-upon-Trent and in 1886 the company was renamed Ind Coope. In 1934 Ind Coope merged with Samuel Allsopp & Sons, one of the largest brewery companies operating in Burton upon Trent at the time to form Ind Coope and Allsopp Ltd. In 1959 The Allsopp name was dropped and the company merged once more with Ansells and Tetley Walker in 1961 to form Allied Breweries. In 1978, Allied Breweries merged with the food and catering group J. Lyons and Co to form Allied Lyons. In 1992 the brewery business side merged with Carlsberg and became Carlsberg-Tetley. In 1993 the Star Brewery in Romford was closed and demolished. In 1997 the Ind Coope Burton Brewery was sold by Carlsberg-Tetley to Bass. The following year (1998) Tetley's was fully taken over by Carlsberg and in 2004 Tetley was dropped from the Carlsberg-Tetley name. The Beer brands that did remain are now brewed under the Carlsberg Group.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.

Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
