Giants of brewing history: Michael Thomas Bass
Burton Union System | The latest installment in the series “The giants of brewing history” takes us to England, more precisely, to Burton-on-Trent. Bass was a name known to almost everyone in the 19th century – and not just in England. The brewery was run by the Bass family for several generations, with Michael Thomas Bass being the most prominent figure. To avoid confusion with his father of the same name, we will refer to him as “the Younger”. Under his aegis, the Bass Brewery evolved into one of the largest breweries in the world.
