Everards celebrates 170 years
Iconic local business Everards of Leicestershire celebrates its 170th anniversary this month.
On October 5, 1849, William Everard bought Everards’ first brewery in Leicester with Thomas Hull, a local maltster. Today, the brewery is owned by the fifth generation of the Everard family. Over the years, Everards has operated five breweries, with its sixth well underway. Today it also owns 175 pubs.
Richard Everard says: “As the new brewery is going up, we find ourselves very proud to be able to look back at the last 170 years and see how much we have grown. Our passion for brewing quality beer and providing communities with great pubs is just as strong today as it was back then. By working with some incredible independent business owners and the support of the Everards home team, we are able to keep the passion alive for all of our customers. We hope that people will join us in raising a glass and saying cheers to another 170 years!”
To celebrate, you will see a new range of Everards glassware in pubs. The conical glasses are lined to one pint and two-thirds of a pint to offer customers flexibility. A half-pint version lined to a third of a pint is coming soon.
Cheers to another 170 years!
