THE KYNETON & TRENTHAM BREWERIES LIMITED. The immortal Shakespeare lus de-' scribed "a quart of good ale' as being "a dish fit for a King,' and when we consider that during the year .1912 about twenty million gallons of beer were brewed by Victorian brewers, alone, it is obvious that beer may just ly be called "the national beverage.'' The great Dr. Johnson once attended the sale cf one of the old London breweries, and is reported to have said to those present, ''Gentlemen,; you, are not here merely for the purpose of buying a few vats and barrels, but you have also the potentiality of becoming rich beyond the dreams of avarice." Brewings as a matter of &lt;iact, has from earliest times been classed as a lucra tive and profitable calling ; and if we are to take as criteria the large and regular dividends paid by brewery companies - nowadays to their share holders, and the big fortunes amassed by brewers, then there is. a good deal of truth in the assumption.
