This brewery, also known as the Star Brewery, formerly stood on the west side of Back-of-the-Walls at the east end of the Star Hotel yard. The business was started by Alderman Scrace in the mid 19th century. In 1890 the business was extended through purchase of the Wheatsheaf Brewery at the rear of the Wheatsheaf Hotel in Bridge Street. The brewery was taken over by Strong’s of Romsey in the 1920s.
