Historical information - The Brewery Quarter
Founded in 1760 when it was known as Gardner's Brewery, the company was registered as The Cheltenham Original Brewery in 1888 and became Whitbread Flowers Brewery in 1963. Brewing ceased in 1998.
It was Cheltenham’s first proper brewery when it was founded in 1760 by local maltster and baker, Thomas Gardner. Gardner’s Brewery flourished and expanded and in 1888 was registered as Cheltenham Original Brewery Ltd. However, people had been brewing their own ale and malt since medieval times because it was safer to drink than disease-borne water.
The Brewery Quarter has been an entertainment and leisure venue since the early 2000s and was revamped and reopened in 2017.
