Notes / History Off-licenses developed from the 1830 Beer Act. Selling a variety of alcohol for home consumption, they can be independent, or affiliated to a particular brewery. For instance, the chief supplier for this Merton shop was the Watneys, a successful brewing dynasty which developed from tiny beginnings in the Wimbledon area.
