We are only here for the Beer ...

One of the advantages of public houses is that many of them have kept the same name for centuries, and as such provide fixed spots when discussing where in a village our ancestors lived. And of course our ancestors would have used them, and in some cases worked in them. I often use the "dead pub" site which contains details of pubs in Hertfordshire and elsewhere from old street directories and other sources. A few days ago I stumbled across the Brewery Historical Society web site, which currently includes information on Benskins Brewery in Watford, and a number of Hertfordshire pubs and feel it needs more publicity. Both links are available through the subject index for this site.
