The Minton Jug
Unlike the majority of public houses in Whitwick, the Crown and Cushion Public House on Silver Street did not have a cellar, so the beer barrels had to be stored on the ground floor.
The Minton jug was used to carry beer from the barrels to serve the customers. It is very unlikely that the jug would have been washed between each use and most certainly would not pass today’s stringent hygiene laws.
