Founded in Harwich in 1723, this brewery has had a chequered recent history. Initially Cobbold & Co Ltd, it moved to its current location in 1746. It merged with Ipswich's other large brewery, Tollemache's Breweries, in 1957. It was then acquired by Ellerman Shipping Lines in 1977. This itself was taken over by Barclay Brothers in 1983. Brewing ceased in 1989 following a takeover by Brent-Walker and production of Tolly brands was transferred to Camerons. However some of the management immediately launched a management buy out and Tolly Cobbold started brewing again, and once more independently, in September 1990. The original brewery was replaced in 1995 with a smaller modern plant but is used for brewery tours. Announced in July 2002 that they had been taken over by Ridleys and the brewery would close before the end of the year with only Original being brewed at Ridleys.

This 'mock-up' of one bottle with two different labels, was acquired by a visitor from a crate in an outbuilding on a trip round the brewery when it was closing, and the guide said he could keep it!
