Some deliciousBeer and food pairings

Hearty meats will go great with this dark ale with the beers intensity ably standing up to that of the food. Game, stews, beef – all perfect options. Blackberry and apple crumble and custard is an indulgent pairing too, where the berry notes complement really well and the vanilla enhances the custard. 

There's a beer for that

Perfect with...

Game or roast beef

’Allo ’allo ’allo,What’s going on here, then?

To commemorate PC John William Stephens, we bring you ‘Tubby’.  A dark ale with a rounded character.  You’ll find inviting layers of blackberry and vanilla and we hope that we’ve developed a beer Tubby himself would have enjoyed with 5p from every pint sold being donated to the charity COPS (Care of Police Survivors).

Leicester PC 83, John William “Tubby” Stephens knew everyone, and everyone knew him.  Always fond of a supping an ale, the story goes that the inspector caught him red handed at a city centre pub in Leicester whist on duty. Realising he could get into trouble,  Tubby quickly turned to his fellow drinker, took hold of him and boomed at the innocent chap “We don’t allow that sort of language, so get out and cause no more bother”. With a smart salute, Tubby turned to the inspector and said, “nothing to report here sir" before coolly walking out of the pub.

So, raise a glass of Tubby this November in selected Everards pubs for PC 83, John William “Tubby” Stephens and help raise money for the COPS - Care of Police Survivors charity.

To increase awareness, this year brings the introduction of the new Tubby pin badges, sporting the beautiful pump clip illustrated by a local designer that will be available in Many Everards pubs, local Police Stations and local businesses for a minimum donation of £1 to COPS this May.
