5Theatre has been in his family. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre (or what houses the R.S.C.) was founded by The Flower family, owner of the Flower's brewery of Stratford. Flowers ale, a beer brewed in Stratford-upon-Avon. Founded in 1830, Flower's Brewery was a very profitable business and was soon the main employer in the town. Shakespeare, the local man who became an international success, was an appropriate trademark for the company, but if the brewery benefited from an association with a world famous playwright, he also benefited as well. The Flower family donated the land on which the first Shakespeare Memorial Theatre was built and paid for the cost of the building.
