Eagle Brewery, 7 Peach Street - in 2011
Kindly provided by Chris French
The small Eagle Brewery at 7 Peach Street opened about 1820. The 1830 Beer Act allowed it to retail its own beer, so it obtained an off-license. In 1854 the brewery was bought by Hewett's Brewery of Waltham St. Lawrence but appears to have closed by 1863, although it continued as a beer and spirits retailer until 1982. *
