When most people think of Tolly Cobbold's brewing operation they probably think of the Cliff Brewery at Ipswich. This imposing building, founded in 1746, is no longer a brewery but it is Grade II Listed and therefore cannot be demolished. Tollemache and Cobbold brewing has occured on at least 5 other sites however and here we attempting to give (eventually) a full account of each.
