Closing date:

10 May 2019, 9 a.m.

About the role

We think this is quite possibly the most exciting job opportunity you’ll currently find in the British brewing industry…

…if you agree, then let’s talk!

We’re Everards of Leicestershire, a fifth-generation independent family business producing fabulous beers enjoyed in our pubs for 170 years, our most iconic beer being Tiger. We’ve seen changes to the industry, the ups and downs of recessions, world wars, but we have always evolved and we’re continuing to do so, and we’d like you to help us shape our future.

As you’ve probably heard, we’re currently building a brand-new brewery together with its own Beer Hall at our new development, Everards Meadows, just off the M1 in Leicestershire. This vibrant space with a state-of-the-art new brewery is an exciting new chapter for Everards and you can find out all about it at

You will be responsible for

We are looking for someone to lead this fantastic new brewery as our previous Head Brewer, Graham, has just retired after an incredible 32 years with us. As a natural people leader, you’ll be responsible for our small but perfectly formed brewing and packaging team as well as our lab manager, so you’ve got accountability for the whole end-to-end brewing process, in fact we could call this role Chief Beer Officer!

You will need

You’ll be a rare breed – someone who has ability and track record in producing consistently excellent beers using contemporary production methods, and in addition you’ll have a huge passion for the industry, bringing flair and excitement to our new product development.

You’ll inspire us to build on our reputation for producing high quality beers day in day out, lead the evolution of our product range, and champion our amazing drinks both within the business but also at Everards Meadows, across our pub estate and beyond.

What's in it for you

As an independent family business with a rich history in Leicestershire we’ve been welcoming talented people to our team for almost 170 years and we’re looking to do the same once again.

About us

We own over 175 pubs and other properties across the East Midlands and whilst we are currently based at Glenfield, we’re confident you’ll have heard about our exciting plans for our new Leicestershire home near Fosse Park.

Our pubs and our beers provide lots of fun and enjoyment for people and we think that our own team are a pretty good bunch too.
