Samuel Allsopp & Sons

Samuel Allsopp & Sons was one of the largest brewery companies operating in Burton upon Trent, England

Allsopp's origins go back to the 1740s, when Benjamin Wilson, an innkeeper-brewer of Burton, brewed beer for his own premises and sold some to other innkeepers Over the next 60 years, Wilson and his son and successor, also called Benjamin, cautiously built up the business and became the town's leading brewer In about 1800, Benjamin Junior took his nephew Samuel Allsopp into the business and then in 1807, following a downturn in trade because of the Napoleonic blockade, he sold his brewery to Allsopp for £7,0001

Allsopp struggled at first as he tried to replace the lost Baltic trade with home trade, but in 1822 he successfully copied the India Pale Ale of Hodgson, a London brewer, and business started to improve

After Samuel's death in 1838, his sons Charles and Henry continued the brewery as Allsopp and Sons In 1859 they built a new brewery near the railway station, and added a prestigious office block in 1864 By 1861 Allsopps was the second largest brewery after Bass Henry Allsopp retired in 1882 and his son Samuel Charles Allsopp took over Allsopps was incorporated as a public limited company in 1887 under the style Samuel Allsopp & Sons Limited There were scuffles at the doors of the bank in the City as potential investors fought for copies of the prospectus, but within three years, these investors were demanding their money back as the returns were so much lower than predicted Under Samuel Allsopp, ennobled as the 2nd Lord Hindlip on the death of his father, Allsopps lurched from crisis to crisis With the difficult trading conditions for beer at the beginning of the 20th century, many Burton breweries were forced to close down or amalgamate After a failed attempt at a merger with Thomas Salt and Co and the Burton Brewery Company in 1907,2 Allsopps fell into the hands of the receivers in 1911 The company's capital was restructured and it continued trading In 1935 Samuel Allsopp & Sons merged with Ind Coope Ltd to form Ind Coope and Allsopp Ltd The Allsopp name was dropped in 1959 and in 1971 Ind Coope was incorporated into Allied Breweries3
