Hull Brewery has its origins in the John Ward Brewery of Dagger Lane, Hull formed in 1765.
A grandson of John Ward, Robert Ward Gleadow formed the company Gleadow Dibb & Co. in partnership with W.T Dibb in 1865 and 3 years later, having outgrown their Dagger Lane premises, they moved to the site in Silvester Street, Hull.

In 1888 the firm was registered as The Hull Brewery Co. Ltd.

Finally Hull Brewery was taken over in 1973 by Northern Foods Group and changed name to North Country Breweries.
