Over 100 Years of Hand Crafted Beers
Sadler’s Ales are situated in the heart of England’s famous and industrial ‘Black Country’. Founded in 1900 by Nathaniel Sadler and later expanded by Thomas Alexander Sadler, the brewery supplied its twelve tied public houses, the most famous being the Windsor Castle Inn, Oldbury, the original Brewery tap house. Today the brewery is run by Chris Sadler, 5th generation brewer.
The Peaky Blinders were a criminal gang based in Birmingham, during the Victorian era. Members of this gang wore a signature outfit including the famous peaked flat caps.
A number of violent street gangs such as the Blinders, the Sloggers and the Birmingham Boys became highly organised and had vast amounts of political control and social power. The most famous of all the gang leaders was probably Billy Kimber.
Billy Kimber was a relative of the Chris Sadler’s grandmother and the gangs back in 1900 regularly visited the Sadler’s pubs. Chris dedicated several of his ales to the gang and also recently launched the Peaky Blinder Spirits range consisting of an Irish Whisky, a Spiced Dry Gin and a Black Spiced Rum.
