Additional Information

Mitchells & Butlers Brewery was formed in 1898 when Henry Mitchell's old Crown Brewery (founded in Smethwick in 1866) merged with William Butler's Brewery (that was also founded in Smethwick in 1866). In 1961 Mitchells & Butlers merged with "Bass, Ratcliff and Gretton Ltd" to form "Bass, Mitchells & Butlers". Further mergers between Bass and other companies saw the M&B name removed although it remained a trading name within the group. In 2002 the brewery was closed and later demolished in 2005. The Mitchells & Butlers brand is now brewed under licence for Coors by Brains of Cardiff.

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.
