Davenports (prev Highgate) (HWBC Ltd)

Founded in 1898. Purchased by Mitchells & Butler in 1939, which merged with Bass in 1961. The management bought it out in 1995, then sold to Aston Manor in 2000, who sold it to pub company Global Star in July 2007. Following a tax bill of 1 million, Global sold it for £80,000 to two property developers in 2010, now revealed to be HWBC Ltd. In 2012 Brewery underwent a name change from Highgate Brewery to Davenports Brewery.
