About Us

William Everard brewed the first pint of Everards ale in 1849, and stated “No effort shall be found wanting in the production and supply of genuine ale of first rate quality”.

Today, over 165 years later, Everards Brewery is very much a family run company with values that echo that of William Everard – We aim to provide first class quality goods and services to our customers.

We firmly believe in combining innovation and modern technology with the best of traditional values and practices throughout the business, whether it’s customer service, brewing, or in our pubs. “Tradition with ambition” as Chairman Richard Everard says.

Looking towards the future, Everards Brewery will stay firmly in the hands of the Everard family. We have long term plans to expand our pub estate and to increase the popularity of our ales,“concentrating,” to quote Richard Everard “on developing the business for the next generation.”


We own over 175 pubs across 14 counties in the East Midlands. All of these are run as independent tenanted businesses which we support. Visit the Our Pubs pages to find a pub near you or Join Everards to find out more about running an Everards pub.


We brew high quality award winning ales and have a core range featuring Beacon Bitter, Tiger Best Bitter, Original Ale and Sunchaser Blonde. We also brew a different beer every month, finding interesting new styles, refreshing old favourites and celebrating local stories. Full details of our range can be found in the Our Ales pages. All of our ales are brewed onsite in our modern brewery and we can also brew beers for others, utilising our expertise and quality control. Visit Contract Brewing to find out more.
