Ann Street Brewery was founded as a company in 1905, but brewing activities on the site it occupied in Ann Street (formerly Rue es Helles) can be traced back to 1871. The new company brewed ale, and only switched to other beer types in the 1950's. Ann Street's most popular and famous beer throughout the years was Mary Ann first brewed in 1926. In 2008, following a management buyout, the Jersey brewery came under the ownership of Liberation Group. Beers are currently branded as either Liberation or Mary Ann. In 2011 the brewery was renamed as the Liberation Brewery but has retained the previous brand names.
