Bravo on this project! It is certainly very interesting.
Just imagine being able to walk into a pub with a really long bar that had ale from each of these long lost breweries on tap. Now that would be some beer fest!

".....which was Beamish and Crawford, which was set up in 1792. The principal other breweries of the time included [b:20st3n2q]Lanes Southgate Brewery (est. 1758)[/b:20st3n2q], the site of the redeveloped Grand Parade City Carpark; [b:20st3n2q]St. Finbarre’s Brewery (est. 1805)[/b:20st3n2q] on Fitton Street (later Sharman Crawford Street); [b:20st3n2q]River Lee Porter Brewery (est. 1796)[/b:20st3n2q] on Prospect Row (site of present day Lee Maltings) and [b:20st3n2q]Cashman’s Brewery at Crosses Green[/b:20st3n2q]. All were located by the river for easy accessibility for transport and for a water supply. Associated with these brewing establishments were various storehouses and malt drying houses, which in many established cases were distributed outside the bounds of the brewery in other parts of the city."
