The Workington Brewery company was founded by John Curwen in 1792. This 19th century indicator shows the quantity of fluid held in the (mash) tun, by means of a chain, seen at the top of the indicator, which is linked to a weighing machine system. In order to keep the quality of the beer consistent it is important to know exactly what quantities of each ingredient are being added to the brew.
