Oldest British Beermats

Watneys & Co., Stag Brewery, Pimlico, London were the first known British brewery to produce a beer mat. The 2 mats to the left were issued in 1922 by the brewery.

There were many earlier mats produced by British based breweries, however these were mainly produced for their export markets such as the McEwans to the left which were issued in 1929.
