Good Honest Tales – 150 Years of Batemans Brewery



by Adam Cartwright
Published by Amberley Publishing

In 2024 the determinedly independent Lincolnshire brewing firm of Batemans will celebrate its 150th anniversary. Nestling beside the Steeping River in the little town of Wainfleet, Batemans’ Salem Bridge Brewery forms a quintessential English scene – including an ivy-covered old windmill whose image is Batemans’ symbol to this day. A family business throughout all that time, Batemans has grown from small beginnings to become justly famous for their award-winning ‘Good Honest Ales’, which are mainly available in the East Midlands, Yorkshire and East Anglia. Along the way they have met and overcome many obstacles. This richly illustrated and thoroughly researched book takes you through the full story of Batemans, blending history with recollections to produce a fitting tribute to this unique firm.
