And then there was one… The last delivery horse at SA Brewery

last beer horse 1951

‘WHISKY’, a grey, is, the only horse left at the SA Brewing Company, after horses have pulled the company’s beer delivery wagons in Adelaide for more than 60 years.

They have been replaced by motor trucks.

The last pair of horses at the brewery made their final trip yesterday, and like the other horses have been found homes.

Whisky joined the company as a three-year-old in 1938, and is shown here with Mr. B. G. Bayly, who has been among the horses for 34 years.

If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
