Initially founded in 1713, it was acquired by S A Brain in 1882. A new brewery on St. Mary Street was built in 1914. Took over Crown Buckley Ltd in 1997. Following the decision by Bass Brewers to close the former William Hancock's & Co Ltd plant, it was purchased by Brain's in 1999 and production moved to The Cardiff Brewery, Crawshay Street, Cardiff, CF10 5DS in 2000. The brewery relocated once more to a new purpose-built brewery towards the end of 2019.
