Phipps NBC: A Northamptonshire brewer

This brewing company's website says:

Phipps NBC are dedicated to creating quality beers based on the original Phipps NBC products sadly lost when the brewery closed in the early 1970's.

Part of Northamptonshire's history going back to 1801 (Pickering Phipps started brewing in Towcester) was almost lost and our aim was and shall remain to celebrate the past whilst looking forward to the future.

Working with several retired brewers and past employees to develop our premium traditional beers we now have a strong demand for Phipps once again across the East Midlands and beyond.

The site also has numerous old photographs of pubs from the original brewer's heyday. The photo above shows the now-closed Sun Inn at Braybrooke - down a by-road from Market Harborough - in 1940.
