1986 Trade Felinfoel Brewery.

 The Brewery started production in     
 1878.The man responsible was the first
 manager, Mr.David John.  Felinfoel    
 Brewery was the first company in      
 Europe to can beer. In 1935 a         
 representative from the Metal Box     
 Company arrived at the brewery with   
 this idea. Llanelli,in those days was 
 very much the centre of the tin plate 
 industry. The Brewery chairman was a  
 shareholder and director in one of the
 tin plate mills.He thought the canning
 of beer was a good idea as it would   
 help to stimulate the industry because
 they were in a period of depression in
 the mid-thirties.  Thousands of dozens
 of cans were sent during wartime to   
 the forces.   After the war sales     
 decreased.  But in the last ten years,
 cans,in what's known as the " take    
 home trade"  have grown and grown.
