The brewery was first established in the Historic Dockyard at Chatham in 1995 as the "Flagship Brewery". In 2003 the brewery was bought and renamed the "Nelson Brewing Company" to fall in line with the most famous naval hero of all time, Admiral Horatio Nelson and that of his flagship, The Victory that was built in Chatham Dockyard. All the ales have nautical themed names to gel with the surroundings in which they are brewed.

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.
