Name of creator
Silver Spring Brewery was incorporated in 1902 and was based in Victoria, B.C.
Coast Breweries Ltd. was a consortium founded by Robert Fiddes and Associates in order to hold the assets of the Victoria-Phoenix Brewing Company, Silver Spring Limited in Victoria, Westminster Brewery Limited in New Westminster, and Kamloops Rainier Brewing Company of Canada.
American breweries soon joined between 1934 and 1949, including the General Brewing Company of San Francisco, California; Star Brewing Company of Vancouver, Washington; and Lucky Lager Brewing Company in Azusas, California. By 1954, the brewing consortium had been renamed Lucky Lager Breweries Limited, and three years later the company was purchased by Labatt Breweries.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of records of Silver Spring Brewery and Coast Breweries between 1909 and 1950 and includes sales books, copies of bills, shipping receipts, a Brewer's Mash Book, brewer's malt stock book, statements and lists on the quantities of ingredients used and the amount of beer produced as well as the Boiler Inspector's Reports and Brewer's licence.
