I lived 100 yards from the J.B. Almond brewery for 24 years, from being born to getting married. I 'served my time' on Almonds ales. J.B. Almond was eventually bought by Burtonwood, but i had moved to pastures new by then. For those who know the present day Standish, The Wheatsheaf pub was where Aldi now is and the brewery directly behind it, entrance from School Lane. As a further matter of interest, J. B. Almond lived in 'The Beeches' the house which is now part of Albert's restaurant.
