History

In 1888 Henry Burrows and Hampton Carroll Gleeson entered into partnership with Allt & Co, wine and spirit merchants, and the Surrey Brewery in Waterloo to form Allt’s Brewery & Wine & Spirit Co Ltd. The business then continued to operate as Allt's Brewing Co Limited. The brewing operations of the Surrey Brewery were closed and brewing was concentrated at the Waverley Brewery (which opened in 1874 as the Adelaide Brewery). With the onset of the depression of the 1890s the holding company Allt’s Brewery & Wine & Spirit Co Ltd went into liquidation in 1895, and Edmund Resch was brought in as manager. The company was purchased by Edmund Resch in 1897 when he formed Resch's Ltd.
