Kimberley Brewery.
William and Thomas Hardy purchased the Samual Robinson’s Brewery at Kimberley in Nottinghamshire in 1857. Both breweries were in close proximity to each other (directly opposite the road). Originally trading from a converted bakery in Hardy Street, Kimberley, they moved into the current brewery in 1861.
In 1930 they merged into another local brewery, Hansons, due to increasing pressure from the larger brewers. In 2006 the Hardys & Hansons Kimberley Brewery and all of its assets including its Public Houses were sold to Greene King.
