Contract brewing

Our vision is to be a family brewer providing great beers, innovation and support.

Everards is an independent family business with over 160 years of brewing heritage.

We have been brewing since 1849 and have modern facilities capable of brewing to the highest standards. This is proven by the numerous awards we have won for our own ales over the years.

We are passionate about quality - we operate to the highest standards and have passed audits from each of the major brewers and well-known high street retailers. We are extremely proud of our laboratory and operate a full time service using up to date, industry accredited equipment. We complete over 3000 quality checks on all our beers every month to maintain the quality our customers have come to expect from Everards.

Our brewery, our lab and our passion for quality, together with the expertise of our brewing team have brought many other brewers to Leicestershire to work alongside us and we are proud to have brewed a number of different beers and styles for drinkers to enjoy both in the United Kingdom and Worldwide.

Why Everards

Everards Brewery has a prominent position just off the M1 and M69 motorways, only four miles from the centre of Leicester. This makes us well placed for distribution to all parts of the country. We have been located here since 1982, having first brewed in Leicester City Centre and then spending over 100 years brewing in the famed Burton Upon Trent. Find out more about Everards history here.
