Searching the web for images relating to the Kirkstall Brewery I found a blue plaque which is presumably on one of its walls. It mentions that the brewery exported beer to Australia.This is it:
I couldn't resist a quick search of the Australian newspaper archive. This is what I found:
The Argus (Melbourne), Friday 13th February 1874, page 2.
Looks like they really did export beer all the way to Australia. I would never have guessed that.
Now there's just one question: which beer was it? A beer specially brewed for the purpose of one of their standard rang?
