150 Years of Brewing in Jersey
Brewing is an important part of Jersey’s cultural heritage and can be traced back 150 years to 1871 when the Ann Street brewing operation in St Helier, the Island’s capital, was started by a Mr J S Palmer.
Far from a modern production line, today it is still seen very much as a craft and there is a real sense of anticipation and excitement for the finished product, knowing that not every brew will taste exactly the same. The passion, skill and care that goes into each brew is evident, not least through the numerous national and international awards that Jersey’s beers have won. To mark 150 years of brewing in Jersey, six stamps and a Miniature Sheet celebrate this traditional craft.
