Reading down the timeline we see such loveliness as:
- 1744: William Worthington starts brewing in Burton-on-Trent, UK.
- 1900: There are more than 32 breweries in Burton, including 87 miles of private brewery track and 36 level crossings in town.
What marvelous moments in Britain's beer heritage!
But wait – what about 2009?
- 2009: Coors Brewers Limited changes its company name to Molson Coors Brewing Company (UK) Limited.
The Worthington "fact" is wrong anyway: William began working as a cooper in Burton in 1744, when he was 21, and only bought his first brewery in 1760.
