Something a bit malty tonight.
My BLAKE ancestors once owned the Jolly Hatters brewery in Melville
Edwin Blake sold out to Cascade in 1922; however before that there is a
reference to a 1911 'James and Blake' partnership and I understand the
'James' to be the same as ended up in the partnership/business Boags and
James (as in Jimmy Boags).
Has anyone looked into any of the above entities or can anyone refer me
to a book or person where I could find out more about the various
breweries and personalities?
