Lloyd & Yorath Luncheon Stout

Had this bottle label Jpeg emailed to me some time ago. It was made by Newport brewers Lloyd and Yorath and the date perforated on it is 16:6:37. Lloyds were based in the town centre on Cambrian Road, the brewery was taken over by Birmingham-based Ansells Brewery in 1951 and was closed in 1961. The buildings were demolished shortly afterwards and the site remained empty for years, used as an open-air car park, until the Cambrian Retail Centre was built on the site.
Luncheon Stout does have a rather civilised name to it. Although in the Nanny State of the twenty-first century it is doubtfull if any brewer would get away with promoting beer as a lunchtime drink.
