Lacons Brewery

Lacons Brewery is located in Great Yarmouth on the east coast. The brewery was originally founded in 1760 and steadily expanded to include two sites and over 150 pubs across East Anglia and London until a takeover in the 1960s led to the cessation of brewing. Interest in this iconic local name was revived in 2009 and we resumed brewing in 2013.

The Lacons Brewery of 2019 is a contemporary brewery with a state of the art brewhouse. Our beers use the original Lacons yeast, which was archived in Norwich in 1960, local East Anglian malts and whole cone hops from the world’s most reputable growers. Head Brewer Wil Wood – previously of Fyne Ales and Oakham – creates cask ales which are both contemporary and firmly rooted in the ethos of the original Lacons Brewery.

The past six years have seen a huge resurgence of popularity for our beer. In February, Lacons Audit Ale, our 8.0% barley wine, was awarded the prestigious CAMRA Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2019. Our flagship amber ale Encore has also been in the limelight, winning multiple awards including a bronze at the International Beer Challenge.

We’re continuing to build on our successes, developing our keg beer range and collaborating with brewers locally and nationally to create exciting small batch beers.
