Everards celebrates 170 years
Iconic local business Everards of Leicestershire celebrate their 170th anniversary this month.
On the 5th October 1849, William Everard purchased Everards first brewery with Thomas Hull, a local maltster. Everards have enjoyed a rich history and stand today with 5 generations of family ownership, 5 breweries with their sixth well underway, 175 pubs and many beers enjoyed over the years.
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 brand-new range of Everards glassware in pubs which features an eye-catching full colour design. The conical glasses are lined to 1 pint and two-thirds to offer customers flexibility and they will also release a half pint version which is also lined to a third of a pint.
To give the new glassware something nice to sit on, they have created new drip mats in six designs, which give snippets of their story so far, which will delight any avid beer mat collector.
If you have been involved in the Everards story or have grandparents that were and have a story to share, either email [email protected] or post on their Facebook page.
Cheers to another 170 years!
