so many of the old inns in Caerleon, the Hanbury once brewed
its own ales. In fact the Hanbury Bewery produced more than
enough for the Hanbury Arms. Its ales were advertised widely.
Prices at the start of the 1900s ranged from 6d (2½p)
to 1s 4d (7p) a gallon depending on the strength of the brew.
In 1910, the Hanbury Arms merged with the Eastern Valley Brewery
Company Ltd, but was still run by the previous landlord, John
Stone Bottle, John Sherwood Brewery, Caerleon
