Tollemache & Cobbold brewery was the Cliff Brewery in Ipswich, which was closed in 1989. Not always popular, one venture "Husky Lager" was so bad even the brewery Chairman, John Cobbold, was reputed to have remarked that "it tasted like dog's piss" . It passed from the Cobbold family to Ellerman Shipping, thence to Barclay Brothers and on to Brent Walker who transferred brewing to Cameron's in West Hartlepool in 1989 before the Brent Walker collapse in 1991.After a management buy out it was then bought by Ridleys in 2002 and brewing transferred to Chelmsford. Arch local rivals Greene,King bought it out in 2005 and promptly scrapped it all.
