Windmill On The Common Hotel London
In 2004, Young's announced a review of its brewing operations in Wandsworth. The difficulties experienced in brewing on this ancient and enclosed site, coupled with the desire of the local authority to acquire and re-develop the site forced the company to consider its options. After a 2 1/2 year review, Young's decided to sell the Ram Brewery site and enter into a joint venture with the Bedford brewers Charles Wells, creating a new force in the industry, Wells & Young's Brewing Company Ltd. There had been a long-standing personal relationship between the Young's and the Wells families. The decision to combine their joint heritage of brewing expertise, traditional techniques, master brewers' craft and the highest quality ingredients with the many benefits of a large, modern brewery would safeguard the future of Young's ales for generations to come. John Young, Chairman of the brewery from 1962 and a strong supporter of the new venture, died of cancer aged 85 in the same week that Young's beers were brewed at Wandsworth for the last time. 2007 - Young ' s pubs continue as a separate, independent retail company. Much of the �69 million raised by Young ' s through the sale has been earmarked for expansion as well as a major refurbishment programme across the company ' s pub estate ensuring that Young ' s pubs will continue to delight their customers with stylish pubs, great service and a fabulous range of traditionally brewed cask ales.
