Brewing started at this site in 1884. The brewery was taken over by Bass Brewers in 1968. Brewing continued under their control until 1999 when the brewery was purchased by SA Brain & Co Ltd who moved into the plant. Hancock's branded beers were brewed by Molson Coors Brewing Company (UK) Limited at their Burton plant under license from AB Inbev UK Limited. In about 2016 production moved back to Brains.
