Brewing started in April 1991 following the purchase of plant and brands in 1988 from Axminster Brewery. The plant had a 10BBL length. Trade expanded steadily including the purchase of a tied house when brewing ceased in 1996 when a number of other breweries including Mill Brewery and Juwards Brewery brewed their beer. Brewing restarted later in 1996 and the name and brands of the now-closed Combe Brewery were acquired. However suddenly in early 1997, the brewery closed reportedly following an investigation by Customs & Excise.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
