Saturday 24th November, 34th National Breweriana Auction. Ever fancied owning a slice of brewing history? Then this Auction is just the thing for you. Run by the Campaign for Real Ale, the National Breweriana Auction returns to Burton on Trent’s Town Hall to celebrate its 33rd event on Saturday 24th November. It again promises over 150 interesting auction lots; everything from mirrors to trays; wall signs, bottles and books. Plus there are a number of stands selling brewery memorabilia adding to the atmosphere in this wonderful Victorian venue.
There are all sorts of items from all over the country to decorate your home or provide an unusual Christmas present. Starting in the Midlands, we have an Offiler’s jug from Derby (1876-1966); a mirror from the local Northampton Brewing Company (registered in 1887, merged with Phipps, closing in 1974). We also hope to have a really unusual lot: two horse harnesses from Nottingham’s  Shipstones Brewery, which was founded in 1852, taken over by Greenalls and closed in 1991.
Moving on to local items, we’ll have a bottle from Burton’s Salt Brewery, who started as maltsters in the C18th and registered in 1893. They were purchased by Bass in 1927 and brewing stopped. Another unusual item is a Marston’s snuff box is another lot from Burton. If you have never been to the National Breweriana Auction before, the auction is great fun to take part in and is an opportunity to get some great bargains plus many of the items on sale can appreciate in value. And, of course, like any CAMRA event, there is some good beer on sale all day (from a local brewery). The event starts at 10.30am with the opportunity to view the lots and browse the breweriana stands that will also be there. Bidding starts at noon after a formal opening by local MP, Andrew Griffiths, and is normally finished by 3pm, giving a chance to have a final perusal of the stands before visiting some of Burton’s iconic pubs and heading home. Entrance is by catalogue (£3.00), available on the day, or £4.00 (includes postage) in advance, by post from Bill Austin: 07789 900411 or baustin1951@btinternet.com If you can’t get there, postal bids are accepted, just contact Bill. Wheelchair accessible. For more details see: http://www.gandc.camra.org.uk.
